Empowering Lives, Breaking Cycles, and Creating Brighter Futures
The children of Haiti find themselves trapped in a painful cycle of suffering and neglect, which is largely caused by institutional, economic, and governance challenges that they have no control over.
As one of the organizations that help children in Haiti, it is our mission to create the future leaders of Haiti through the provision of education, healthcare, advocacy and care for abandoned children with quantifiable accountability measures.
Orphanages / Institutionalization of Children
Moving beyond institutional care, we’re reconnecting children with families and building community resilience.
Insufficient Government Funding to Care for Vulnerable Children
Bridging the gap where government support falls short, we’re delivering vital resources to Haiti’s most vulnerable children.
Unintended Consequences Of Foreign Aid
Guiding foreign aid with a careful hand, we ensure that help reaches those who need it most without unintended fallout.
Long-Term Economic Sustainability
We’re fostering economic sustainability that will support generations to come.
During this crucial time, the unwavering support of our donors and partners are absolutely indispensable. In Haiti, where medical needs and emergencies persistently challenge our disabled children, the significance of their assistance cannot be overstated.
Every contribution is a lifeline channeled towards the most pressing needs and transformative projects. At HaitiChildren, our Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and Co-Founders contribute more than 100% of all US overhead and administrative expenses, so 100% of outside donations go directly to the projects in Haiti. We are committed to transparency, and as part of this commitment, we provide a detailed breakdown of our expenditure, allowing you to see the life cycle of your donation.
Your donation provides 25,128 meals monthly for children and staff and helps us continue to grow food for them.

This allows you to stay connected and witness the positive changes your donations make.
Can I donate items instead of money?
