Aim4Haiti NPO aims at supporting Haitian Independence through direct partnerships with Haitian farmers and Haitian merchants.
Aim4Haiti non-profit is committed to supporting sustainable community development in Haiti.
Founded in 2017 through a Haitian and non-Haitian partnership with the same vision. Since then our dedicated team made up of Haitian and non-Haitian members strive to support Haitian independence through micro-enterprises, including the sale of direct trade products from Haiti, goat and chicken projects, tree planting projects and food baskets programs that are managed by Haitian entrepreneurs and Haitian farmers. The food basket process only uses Haitian vegetables and eggs - no imported foods are used in an effort to better support the local economy. Our microlending, interest free credit program helps small businesses get established and further promotes Haitian independence and reduces the need for free aid.
In addition, Aim4Haiti supports Haitian healthcare providers in running their own independent medical clinics and carrying out their own home care visits within their communities. We strive to learn and share more about racial inequality, systemic racism, white fragility and white supremacy issues that could be impacting the successful growth of Haiti. We seek first an evaluation of our own team's awareness of these issues and then strive to take ownership of any issues - open to change and growth from there.
Haiti itself is a country striving to rebuild and regain independence after the devastation of the 2010 earthquake. Food insecurity is present, sources of clean water are scarce, and there is limited healthcare services, and the basic needs of humankind are often not being met on a regular basis. Haiti is also a beautiful country, filled with many beautiful people living on the margins of life. Once a vibrant Caribbean country, with an interesting history, as the first free black republic in 1804.

FOOD BASKETS FOR HAITI
Aim4Haiti team is joining forces with local Haitian farmers to help provide food baskets to Haitian families in need. (See below photos.)
Many Haitian children and elderly are malnourished, with many only eating one meal a day, some only one meal every two days. These nutritious vegetables and protein filled eggs will help feed a family in this situation. In addition to helping to feed hungry families, this joint venture helps support local farmers who are working to feed their own families and send their own children to school. Each locally grown, organic vegetable basket, comes two trays of locally produced eggs, and is hand delivered to a family in need.
The cost of one handmade basket filled with organic vegetables is $17 plus $9 for two trays of eggs, a pick-up fee of $3 and delivery fee of $4 bringing the total cost to $33.
If you wish to help a Haitian family in need, while also empowering Haitian farmers and local Haitian merchants, rather than enabling further aid dependency projects or programs that are keeping Haitians oppressed, then please consider our program.
You can purchase a food basket by following the Paypal process noted above. Please mark "Food Basket" in Memo box. Or, checks can be made payable to "Aim4Haiti NPO" and mailed to, 2 Acorn Circle, Essex Junction 05452 Vermont, USA.
We know there is poverty in places like USA and the UK too, but nothing compares to the poverty and dire circumstances of the people of Haiti. There are no food stamps, or government aid in Haiti to help feed needy families. Currently the inflation rate in Haiti has quadrupled, gang violence and government protests continue to make life more difficultult for Haitian families.
Thank you and please feel free to contact us via email at, email@example.com if you have any further interest in our work. Help us end aid dependency, empower Haitian farmers and local Haitian merchants.
2020 TREE PLANTING INITIATIVE
In 2020 Aim4Haiti organization partnered with MMU Global Health Initiative (GHI) to help plant trees in Beausejour, Haiti.
In looking at climate change, we have learned from our Haitian agronomist friends how trees help reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, enhance soil allowing for better absorption of rain leading to higher groundwater levels, and also reduce the risk of mudslides.
This global outreach project will help provide food, water and jobs for the people of Haiti and help our global environment.
If you are interested in finding out more about our new initiative please contact Gillian Compo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, Team Aim4Haiti.
The road to Beausejour.
New home project in Canaan completed August 2019. (photos with permission.)
In 2019 Aim4Haiti NPO partnered with a Haitian builder & his team to help build a larger home for a family in Canaan, Haiti.
This project not only provided a new home for a family, but only local Haitian builders were employed. Builders who are often left unemployed due to non-Haitian builders coming to Haiti and constructing new homes.
Thank you to all who helped make this project success.
