Ventures In People is a small effective organization working in Haiti for over 30 years. Its 12 member board has been able to harness and direct the energies and gifts of about 900 readers. Its focus changes with the needs of the Haitian as seen by both the Haitian and the American. We have always been welcomed on Haitian soil. George Schowalter

Ventures in People may be small compared to other nonprofits, but they are doing some mighty work in Haiti! Ventures in People empowers Haitians to improve their lives and communities through school scholarships, 4-H grants, and clean water projects. They definitely live up to their mission of "helping Haitians help themselves"!

Ventures in People is a wonderful way to provide a helping hand to the people of Haiti. They provide scholarships, 4-H programs, and clean water for these desperate people. I fully support VIP in its mission in Haiti to 'Help Haitians Help Themselves".
