Haitian Vision Foundation (HVF) is a Haitian-American collaboration that supports a multi-pronged, culturally sensitive approach to providing access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunities in the northern Haitian town of Dondon. We believe in the dignity and capability of the Haitian people, and we believe that providing these essential resources will give them the means to escape the cycle of poverty.
Through this program, HVF is providing access to much needed educational opportunities to Haitian children. In Haiti, there are few public schools. These are not well resourced and may average 50-60 students in a class. The majority of primary and secondary schools are private and beyond the reach of most families. HVF's scholarship program covers not only a student’s tuition and fees, but also uniforms, school books, and school supplies.
Health Care Clinic
Haiti’s limited access to healthcare is one of the biggest problems preventing Haiti from prospering. As Winston Churchill said, “Healthy citizens are the greatest assets a country can have.” In most Haitian communes, there are no bed-equipped clinics. HVF has successfully established a year-round chronic disease clinic, organizes mobile clinics once or twice a year, and provides preventative healthcare education during the mobile clinics.
