Mission Statement

The Socio-Cultural Movement of Haitian Workers (MOSCTHA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and respect for the human rights of Haitian immigrants, and also other impoverished people in the Dominican Republic, through programs and projects of integrated community development

Description

The Socio-Cultural Movement for Haitian Workers (MOSCTHA) is a non-profit organization founded by Haitian workers in 1985. What started as an idea to provide healthcare to oppressed sugar cane cutters has since grown into a movement dedicated to better and empower these sugar refinery communities. Ninety percent of sugarcane cutters in the Dominican Republic are illegal Haitians, working for less than five dollars a day for roughly eighteen hours of work. It is the organization's goal to help these impoverished communities get basic needs met. We are dedicated to servicing the sugar refinery communities by offering them clean water and sanitation, healthcare, education, human rights awareness, agricultural development and micro-finance.
