Haiti Foundation of Hope is a Christian organization addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people in the impoverished and underserved rural communities of northern Haiti.
Committed to Christ – We are committed to all the teachings of Christ, caring for the whole person including physical and spiritual needs. We recognize our own brokenness and need for transformation, acknowledging that true change comes from Christ alone.
Participatory learning – We collaborate with our Haitian partners in the spirit of mutual learning.
Local ownership and initiative – Our work is led by local Haitian leaders. We rely on local expertise and resources before we bring in outside assets. We use participatory processes in all our work, ensuring local ownership of programs.
Relationships – We honor our relationships with Haitian leaders and their community members, as well as our donors and volunteers. We are committed long-term to the communities we serve, ever increasing the capacity of our Haitian partners to do more themselves.
Integrity – We act as effective stewards of God’s resources entrusted to us. We seek to make decisions and work in a way that is transparent to others.
Sustainability – We build financial sustainability and local capacity into our programs to ensure their longevity. We prioritize development over relief.
Northern Haiti is a poverty-stricken region where malnutrition, intestinal parasites, malaria and other infectious diseases run rampant and where there was once no medical care. This remote area struggles with the extremes of drought and flooding. There has never been electricity, potable water, a national school system or a viable economy. Christian witness was absent until 1995.
As a result of our work with in-country partners, the communities in this region now have consistent medical care, a growing school system and other life-changing programs. The local church is rising up to care for its own community. Together we are making a difference.
