Mission Statement

To provide Haitians with efficient ways to be successful - a chance everyone deserves

Description

Haitian Vision Foundation (HVF) is a Haitian-American collaboration that supports a multi-pronged, culturally sensitive approach to providing access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunity in Haiti. We believe in the dignity and capability of the Haitian people, and we believe that providing these essential resources will give them the means to escape the cycle of poverty.

We are currently working in the northern Haitian town of Dondon running a preventative care medical clinic, scholarship programs, English school, and microcredit enterprise. HVF is primarily focused on medical treatment and education right now as they are equally challenging to obtain. Education in Haiti comes at a cost that many cannot afford and medical preventative treatment is extremely rare. At HVF, we are working on helping students receive a quality education through providing sponsors throughout their primary and secondary educational journey.
