Our Story

We Are In For A Better World

Haiti’s Heart is driven by a profound respect and love for a culture that has endured significant hardships. Despite the richness of Haiti’s culture, characterized by its creativity, ingenuity, and beauty, the impact of natural disasters, poverty, and political challenges has left individuals, including children and adults, without viable means to support themselves and their families.
Amidst these circumstances, the Haitian people shine brightly with intelligence, optimism, and a steadfast hope for self-reliance. Our organization aims to provide transformative opportunities and foster trusted relationships within communities through the power of education, service, and humanitarian initiatives towards self-reliance. By focusing on the inherent strengths of these communities, we impart valuable independent skills, and embody the timeless wisdom expressed in the saying: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” We encourage our supporters everywhere to embrace a student mindset, immersing themselves in the captivating culture while actively contributing to our mission, touching the hearts of the Haitian people, one by one.
