Bringing our Hands to the Heart of Haiti!


At Hands to Hearts International, we have long dreamed about working in Haiti. The need there is so compelling and the opportunities to serve so numerous. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere: 80% of its population lives under the poverty line and an estimated 15% of the child population is orphaned.

So I’m pleased to announce that Hands to Hearts is partnering with The Alliance for Children Foundation to support their mission of improving the lives of orphaned and at-risk children and families. In May, we will join the Foundation on the ground in a rural Haitian village to provide our early childhood development trainings, using a curriculum specially adapted to the local context.

Hands to Hearts will train the caregivers at The Foundation’s Infants’ Home, which serves children ages birth to three years, including those with special needs.  We will also work with their Community Center, training a group of local trainers to deliver HHI's education, ensuring that this resource will be available to parents in the community for years to come.
Stay tuned for updates from Haiti and, as always, thank you for the support that makes our work possible.
