A Note from the Founder

A nation at the mercy of other countries is a nation in chains. Although diplomacy and strategic relationships are welcomed and needed, no one should want to effect change in Haiti’s current state than it’s people. As fellow diaspora, we owe it to our country to ensure its greatness and to see our nation rising from the ashes, but not just with words, but with action. 

We have a rich history that is being forgotten by our present situation. We can not blame the world for our perception because as diaspora there our times where we do not hold our own culture and history to the honor it deserves. We ourselves have forgotten what it was to see our country prosper. Let’s together redefine who we are as we restore our history. We cannot move forward as a nation we begin making strategic changes to the create the history we believe our nation should have.

Haitians Helping Haitians is a non-profit organization that is striving to bring Haitians together for the sole purpose of improving every facet of Haiti. Our primary goal is to find ways to create better economic opportunities across various industries, improving curriculum in education as well as funding education opportunities to well deserving students in Haiti, as well as creating marketing and business opportunities for Haitian diaspora entrepreneurs to stimulate the economy.  

Let’s face it, Haitians residing abroad play a vital part in the country’s economy, due to a majority of us funding families back home but the nation is still suffering because of the lack of local economic opportunities.  Being part of this movement, will offer every Haitian a chance to invest time and resources in the development in a new, well developed Haiti so that we can change our history once more. Haitians Helping Haitians vision is to re-establish a proud nation throughout the world with the efforts of its people. I can’t think of a greater feeling than a country that is being taken care of by its own people. Imagine how each of us will feel, the legacy that will be left behind or the stories that would be told to our children, for generations to come.

For a long time, the world has been able to paint a horrible picture of us that hasn’t been completely wrong. But believe me, that stain is not easily removed, from being accused of the country that created AIDS and CHOLERA to being called a SHITHOLE COUNTRY by our most recently elected leader of the United States of America. But history had proven we are not any regular nation, we are a resilient people with the ability to rise above all obstacles.

Now more than ever it is time to stand united under one flag, the Haitian flag. To change our mindset, to motivate ourselves to put the world on notice and to leave behind a better country for our children and a nation that shows our ancestors’ sacrifices weren’t in vain. The time has come and gone. We have spent too much time waiting on our local, federal government or international countries and initiatives and numerous, misguided businessmen to lend a hand. No other citizen, no other country, no other organization has a greater debt to our beloved country than we do.

 Please join us on this journey that we must undertake. Although, I must warn you this journey won’t be a short one or an easy one because it wasn’t meant to be. But this is an opportunity to be a part of a long lasting legacy that we will only have ourselves to thank for.

We must rise. Not as an individual, but as Nation. A determined, devoted, motivated and fearless nation. The time to stand up is now at this moment for our beloved homeland.
