Welcome to Hands For Haiti... Every dollar donated goes directly to the children of Tremesse.
Hands for Haiti is a registered 501c3 non-profit helping to bring education to some of the poorest of the poor in rural Northern Haiti. For the past two years, hand-in-hand with the Village Committee of Tremesse, Haiti we’ve been working to educate and feed over 200 children from pre-school through the fifth grade. Hand for Haiti is the sole means of funding for building and operating the only school in Tremesse Village: The Solidarity School. Our vision is to work TOGETHER with the children and parents of Tremesse to help them break the cycle of poverty through education — we HELP THEM HELP THEMSELVES. The parents of the Tremesse are simply desperate to educate their children. There is no free public education in Haiti, yet before we became involved the villagers were doing everything possible to get their children educated: they found volunteer teachers and held classes every day under a leaky tarp, with no books, no pens or pencils, and no walls to keep out the rain. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to partner with such a dedicated group. Truly we consider what we do not providing charity, but providing opportunity.
