Mission:
Established in the wake of the devastating January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the HavServe Volunteer Service Network (HavServe) is a volunteer-led, 501(C)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in Maryland, dedicated to partnering with targeted communities in rural Haiti to rebuild and provide sustainable basic services primarily in the areas of education and youth development. Guided and inspired by the UN’s Millennium Development Goals, we believe that creating conditions that ensure a successful basic education and the development of basic life skills will enable children to develop into independent, self-sufficient adults and thus improve their chances for a brighter future. By focusing our efforts on the education of each individual child, along with many of the associated needs that predict success, HavServe strives to recreate a sense of stability and possibility in their lives.

Results:
ALL of HavServe’s activities are only made possible through the generous financial and in-kind donations of our volunteers and other supporters around the world. We know that volunteering benefits both society and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity, cooperation and reciprocity; and by creating opportunities for growth and self-empowerment. Volunteers experience personal and professional growth, build character and develop leadership and empathy. These are among the many reasons that we make a point of engaging youth from local Maryland communities and beyond, as volunteers. We provide local youth with mentoring, leadership development and volunteer opportunities that encourage growth and help foster a sense of global awareness and partnership with their peers in Haiti and beyond.

I will never be able to put in words what a volunteer experience like this can do for you. For sure when you first join any organization you are certain of your desire to help others. But you cannot anticipate how the whole experience will end up helping you. In a few words: It is a life changing ... more »

Becoming a part of the Havserve Family has been the most rewarding experience ever. I was invited to join this mission by my two close friends Guga and Gua, who have previously been to the village of Lebrun, Haiti to help the Soccer as a Tool for Development program. Going to Haiti made me realize... more »
