Our Mission

The Haitian Roots mission

Haitian Roots is a nonprofit organization committed to protect and empower Haitian children who lack access to quality education. We believe education is the most powerful tool to transform Haitian society. Haitian Roots depends on donations from kind supporters, with all funds going toward educating the children of Haiti.

Haitian Roots Academies

Our academies in Santo and Delmas, Haiti, are licensed by the Haitian Ministry of Education and serve more than 500 students every year. We provide education, meals, and mental health and trauma therapy to our students with the help of more than 80 licensed staff members.


Many of our students depend on the school for their daily nutrition. By sponsoring a child, you can help them stay safe, fed and educated.

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.

Make a donation to our school or contact us about other ways you can help.
