Change the Life Of a Child … Transform The Future Of A Nation.
“There can be no keener revelation of society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” – Nelson Mandela
Exposed to Contaminated Water
Lack Access To Secondary Education
Over 85,000 Homeless Families
Haiti remains the poorest country in the Americas and one of the poorest in the world. According to the latest household survey, more than 6 million out of 10.4 million (59%) Haitians live under the national poverty line of US $2.41 per day and over 2.5 million (24%) live under the national extreme poverty line of US $1.23 per day. – The World Bank
We give A Hand Up, Not Hand Outs
There is no shortage of sun in Haiti, which is why our entire Children’s Home runs on solar power. The Hopestart compound in Jeremie depends on a great solar system consisting of 50 panels and a bank of batteries where we store the energy produced by the solar panels, thus having reliable electricity on a 24/7 basis.
The ingredient that is most sorely lacking in the Haitian diet is protein. The lack of this essential component of a healthy diet severely hampers the intellectual development and growth of Haitian children. On the other hand, the cost of meat and eggs, the richest sources of protein, is beyond what many orphanages or other child care institutions in Haiti can afford. To make protein – meat and eggs – available in our childcare operations, we have taken up chicken farming.
95% of all funds go straight to Haiti
Over 95% of all money raised goes directly to Haiti – not stateside on advertising, salaries or admin costs. HopeStart International’s investments in Haiti, outside of its primary care programs, include investments in Haiti’s infrastructure, manufacturing and labor needs.
