Our Mission

The Haitian Roots mission

Haitian Roots is a nonprofit organization committed to protecting and empowering underserved Haitian children through education. We believe education is the key to changing Haitian society. Haitian Roots relies upon donations from generous supporters, with 100% of funds going toward educating the children of Haiti

Haitian Roots Academies

We operate two academies in Haiti, located in Santo and Delmas, licensed by the Haitian Ministry of Education. We have more than 500 students enrolled in the current school year. Our students receive education, meals, and mental health and trauma therapy from 80 licensed staff members.


For many of our students the only meals they'll eat each day is provided by the school. Sponsoring a child ensures they are safe, fed and gaining an education.
