During my volunteering stay in Haiti this summer I decided to visit as many of my friends who were active on the ground. Took a motorbike taxi for the first time (being assured from Color of Hope that this is their means of travel as well). I was amazed at the work they've done. Unlike many quick setups around they put their hearts and souls in the project. They are beneficiaries and products of the culture and system. They are well aware of what the education system lacks and how best to implement it. I appreciate the interest in the young people and the focus on science based subjects. Haitians are innovators, they create great things from what they have, therefore to enable them the educational tools lacking in the public school system is a brilliant initiative and should be supported by anyone interested in alleviating poverty and improving education. Hats off! I will continue to support and promote their work abroad. Guilaine Brutus Leeds Beckett University UK

i still have it fresh in my memory when I met one of the organizing member of Color of Hope. In his hand was a small drawing of what he envisioned that one day will stand in Haiti. the goal of the organization was to bring our Haitian brothers and sisters up to par with the rest of the world. A tall order for an organization with so few resources at their disposal. However, where there is hope, there will always be life and success.
Today I am happy to say how proud I am of the Color of Hope efforts in Haiti. We can see with their determination, and hard work, they have accomplished great things with so little.
Every Haitian should feel, and behave in the same way if Haiti's children are to have a better future.Color of Hope is , and will continue to be a great organization because thes guys are relentless in their efforts. I feel so blessed that i am able to take part in helping in that vision. You all are #1 in my book. Keep up the great effort, and you will always have my support. Great job!

I went to Haiti with Color Of Hope in June of this year. I had a very positive and enlightening experience thanks to them. I was particularly happy to feel the joy brought to the kids from the exposure to technology, puzzles and tools to study with like solar powered lamps. Most importantly communicating with people who care really made an lasting impact on me and on the people we served. I will continue to bring more members to participate in the various activities that COH always has going on and I will continue to be a part of Color of Hope.

Color of Hope is helping to rebuild Haiti without any major recognition. The kids in Haiti are getting a great exposure to technology. They have a chance to use tech gadgets they could have only imagine. However, Color of Hope makes their dream a reality.

The Haitian youth has a thirst for knowledge. NGO like Color of Hope is providing that knowledge to students and teachers alike.

It has been a great pleasure to work with the staff at Color of Hope. The work is enormous. They cannot do it alone. They're willing to work with anyone who would like to see Haiti succeed.

After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, I was amazed to see how the founding members of Color of Hope quickly mobilized the community to help the country. I was there from the beginning, ready to lend a helping hand and as a result of our fundraising efforts we were able to provide food to the injured victims at the hospitals. In order to honor and remember the earthquake victims, we created a digital memorial wall, 112haiti.com which allows family and friends of the deceased to list their names on the wall. In addition to the memorial wall, we also organized an annual 60-mile bike-a-thon in memory of the earthquake victims. Within four years, the team work rigorously to raise funds to build The Hope & Innovation Center which provides the youth in Haiti access to technology and quality education programs. I am very proud of my team’s ability to create projects that strengthen the communities in Haiti and in the United States.
