Raising Haiti Foundation provides support for grassroots initiatives designed to foster
socio-economic development across rural Haiti through the empowerment of its citizens.
Raising Haiti Foundation is inspired by the grassroots development model established by Father Joseph Philippe through the Association of the Peasants of Fondwa (APF Haiti). Rooted in the rural village of Fondwa, APF Haiti has led its community in establishing grassroots programs for education, healthcare, child safety and reforestation. We believe such resources are not only basic human rights, but also fundamental building blocks of any thriving community.
