To provide Haitians with efficient ways to be successful - a chance everyone deserves.
The Haitian Vision Foundation (HVF) is a collaboration between educated Haitians and American partners. We propose a multi-pronged, culturally sensitive approach to aid that gives Haitians access to education, healthcare, and funds to support Haitian-initiated business. We believe in the dignity and capability of the Haitian people, and we believe that providing these essential resources will give Haitians the means to escape the cycle of poverty.
Our vision is to establish HVF centers across Haiti that include a microcredit enterprise, a health care clinic, a scholarship program, a library, a vocational school, an English as a Foreign Language school, and a music school. We plan to start small, with one HVF center in the city of Dondon that provides. Once these are established, we will add. After these programs are mature in Dondon, we will expand HVF to other cities.
