We are thrilled to extend a heartfelt invitation to each and every one of you to join us for the 9th annual Hike for Haiti event, proudly organized by Tree Angels for Haiti. This year, as we lace up our boots and hit the trails, we aim to not only traverse the scenic paths of the Billy Goat Trail but also to take significant steps forward in supporting vital initiatives in Haiti.

This is also a great opportunity for every volunteer to create new experiences and have interactions with people with similar interests. We all have our planet in mind and wish to create environmental change in places like Haiti where it's urgently needed. It's also a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to help a great cause and spend a good time with people with similar interests. We welcome young and old and hope that this hike or nature walk will be a fun way to bring people outdoors again.
Please sign up for this opportunity by Friday May 31, 2024.

Thank you and looking forward to see you.

Mission Statement

Founded in 2011, Tree Angels for Haiti is a nonprofit environmental/educational organization whose mission is to help restore a degraded environment and deforestation caused primarily by massive tree cutting in a country where only 2% of forested land remains. We create a sustainable wellness and educative programs capable of helping communities in Haiti take charge of their environment as well as their health.

Description

People in high-poverty communities turn to tree cutting as a mean of income and therefore destroy the source of clean air, water and rich soils. By growing trees and distributing them to everyone in the communities we serve, we help promote the benefits of these trees, help bring back disappearing tree species and also educate the population about the multiple benefits of these trees. The organization also tours schools, community centers, churches, etc. and invites students, active community leaders, clergy and local governmental leaders to take charge and help restore their environment. by devoted and caring people who wished to make a difference, Tree Angels for Haiti addresses the call for engaging people who also have a passion and desire to help those who are in greater need. This year marks of 5 th.year of operation and we are proud to say that we’ve planted and distributed over 77 000 trees and donated over 500 backpacks full of educational material to participating children and families through our Backpack for Haiti program. We have also partnered with a 3 schools and started a sponsorship program called: Teachers helping Teachers.
