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.

From vision to reality

On October 6, 2014, the dream of Haitian Roots came true when we opened our first Academy. We were so excited for this opportunity to truly ensure our children are not just getting an education but are getting a great one!

Haitian Roots operates academies in Santo and in Delmas. Our teachers are trained by P4H Global who help ensure we employ highly qualified, experienced, energetic, and happy teachers who love what they do. We partner with Outside the Bowl to provide a food program to ensure our students are well nourished physically and mentally.
