Challenge

Haiti's rural poverty has led to more than 133,000 people leaving rural areas annually for overcrowded urban centers or dangerous routes of emigration. People are leaving due to a lack of resources and too little opportunity. They are seeking education, health care, a sustainable livelihood. But what they find is squalid conditions in over-crowded, informal settlements without infrastructure for safe shelter, hygiene, or transportation.

Solution

Working with community leaders, we fill the opportunity gap together, working towards a Petit Trou that can thrive, one family at a time. We do this through four core programs, all locally-led and community driven: Education, Agriculture and Conservation, Girls' Empowerment, and Community Health.When you support the Colorado Haiti Project, you invest in Haitian leaders doing transformative work in education, girls' empowerment, agriculture, and health.

Long-Term Impact

Our deep commitment to long-term relationships are the answer to creating sustainable, lasting change in Petit Trou. We envision a community that is self-directed & empowered, with opportunities for livelihoods that are sustainable locally & globally. Our programs work to create a community that is thriving, healthy, and full of opportunity, so that community members do not feel the only hope is to leave their families and their heritage to build a life elsewhere.
