Join Us In Celebrating 30 Years of Impact in Haiti!

Join Hope for Haiti as we Celebrate 30 Years of Impact

“If it was easy, anyone could do it.” These are the words Hope for Haiti’s founder, JoAnne Kuehner, uses to guide us when we are confronted with the diverse and nuanced challenges of implementing poverty alleviation programs in Haiti.

Over the course of the last 30 years, JoAnne’s words and her actions have inspired a movement of like-minded people from all over the world to serve and invest in improving the quality of life of the Haitian people, particularly children. Today, the Hope for Haiti network is more united than ever by five core values:  resilience, empowerment, accountability, collaboration, and hope. These values ground us, and help us remain relentlessly committed to our shared vision for Haiti: joyful children; healthy families; thriving communities; and the resources to make it so.

This year, as in years past, Hope for Haiti will work to improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of children, parents and grandparents in Haiti through comprehensive development programs focused in education, healthcare, infrastructure development, access to clean water, and economic opportunity.
