    THE JOURNEY BEGINS

    Founder Tamara Cantave

    Help Hayti is a 20-year old concept coming to fruition. It began in 1986 with a personal study aimed at understanding Haiti’s behavior settings, its physical features and the social circuits that maintain them. It has evolved into a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit

    imagecharitable project of United Charitable Programs founded in March of 2005 by an independent group of concerned Haitians, Haitian-Americans, and members of the international community for the benefit of Haiti as the need to organize a response to the deafening cries of more than four million Haitian children escalates. Dedicated in its efforts to improve the quality of life in the rural communities of Fond Verrettes, Help Hayti began its campaign of school reforms and environmental protection and has quickly emerged as a major charitable organization addressing education issues among others in the remote villages of Hayti.

    imageHelp Hayti has been a committed advocate of the peasant community since 1986. The organization was created out of concern for a) the national crisis in academic performance among the peasant population and; b) the need to integrate a response to the increasing environmental deforestation. Help Hayti’s membership is comprised of educators and health Help Hayti’s membership is comprised of educators and health

    care providers, agronomists, artists, financial investors, lawyers, consultants and community activists who through community outreach and education efforts, participation in conferences and task forces, litigation and research, have developed the expertise in the area of community development and school reform initiatives.

    Help Hayti’s vision is to integrate actions to permanently reinvigorate the social, economic, and physical equilibrium of Haiti. The aforementioned goals will be accomplished via the grassroots organization-arm of Help Hayti, Humanitarian Aid for the Advancement of the Community Population (HAACP) whose mission is to provide quality primary education and follow-along services to disadvantaged children in remote villages of Hayti. The collaborative efforts of both branches created the Adopt-A-Community project to influence the dynamic change we seek in rural communities. Read More

    THE PASSION TO HELP PEOPLE

    Developed Goals

    I continued this ride until 2000, the new millennium when I became inspired by the Millennium Development Goals. MDGs consist of 187 countries vowing to collectively eradicate extreme poverty (along with a list of 7 other objectives such as achieve universal primary education/reduce child mortality) by the year 2015. Needless to say, their vision is parallel to mine…just like mine, their objective is to improve human development, which is measured by 3 factors: life expectancy, standard of living, and the level of education.

    All of us can agree that education is the key to transformation. Hoping to bring postive changes to the children of Haiti is why Help Hayti has focused its efforts on the education factor. Without it there is no improvement in the life expectancy or the standard of living of the disadvantaged…only hunger, sickness, more poverty and in some sad occasions even death. 2004 was the start of it all.
