They do a great job of creating opportunities for young people who will in turn be able to help others improve their community.
I have been a supporter of this group for many many years - progress is made both in care of individuals and planning for longer term support. I am thrilled about the teacher education program and the vocational training program which is well under way.
I saw HMP in action 5 months after the 2010 earthquake. Five women were feeding over 400 children a day out of a small room next to St. Pierre's School in Mirebalais. I was impressed by their steady strength and determination placing huge, heavy iron pots of rice and beans on wobbly iron grates over charcoal fires, and mashing and straining vegetables and bean sauce with pestles and dime-store sieves. In my world, I cook over gas, have a ventilation fan, and use a cuisinart or blender for sauces. But this experience was not about cooking technique, of course. It was about human grace under the pressure of poverty, and the incarnation of God's universal love and mercy.
This is a unique organization of Haitians leading and serving other Haitians. HMP runs on volunteers in the U.S. and professional and volunteer staff in Mirebalais. It is targeted, efficient and trustworthy. Nothing is wasted. When you give to HMP, you know exactly how your donation will be used. Please help them continue this life-saving work!
This small nonprofit is one of thousands operating in Haiti. Many "aid" and "relief" organizations send well-intentioned funds and people to provide basic necessities: food, clean water, education, health care. The sad truth is that too many of these NGO's do not employ Haitians, and therefore falter or fail. Here is where HMP distinguishes itself. It is an organization with a 10-year track record of Haitians helping Haitian children to get a leg up into a better life. Through its feed ing and education programs, HMP nourishes and empowers 400+ children in Mirebalais, Haiti. HMP lives out the cry of the prophet Micah, who told us mortals to "do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God."
Their success with helping the children of Haiti speaks volumes for the organization as an effective charity
HMP goes above and beyond to help where it's needed most, the smiles of the children and their successes tell us that this is a charity that really benifit those it's meant to.
Haiti Micah Project does important work with integrity and care. The money donated goes to service and resources for children (for example: food, school supplies, a safe place to sleep, a well drilled to assure clean drinking water, etc.). Cost for overhead is kept at a minimum and is provided by Haitians, thereby providing a critical income stream for local adults.
HMP continues to do significant work to improve the lives of children and those in need in Haiti. Their support of children in Mirebalais and in other parts of Haiti is touching and shaping lives everyday.
Our church has sponsored 60-70 children each year. We also helped sponsor the building of a tech educational program. Haitians are running the program with incredible success. I totally endorse their efforts. Marcia Liebich
I am in awe of the staff at the Haiti Micah Project and what they can accomplish with limited funds. We have supported three children there since the earthquake.
I started supporting the Haiti Micah Project 10 years ago. I am deeply moved with gratitude to read that children who entered the program all those years ago have now graduated from high school and passed the rigorous tests to receive diplomas. This is a testament to the value and heart of the Haiti Micah Project, actually making a difference in children's lives.
Their new trade school should lead to even more great stories. Looking forward to the next 10 years.

HMP is an awesome non-profit. Efforts are focused on feeding, housing, and educating youth, and the result is a talented group of young adults able to help make a positive difference in Haiti.
If you are seriously looking for a charity the Haiti Micah Project (HMP) will exceed your expectations. At Trinity Episcopal Church, of Arlington Virginia we are the proud sponsor of five kids, and have been involved for almost six years. We support these kids through fund-raising activities supported by our church and members of the public. We regard our participation as an opportunity to help those that are less fortunate and instilling a sense of hope when it seems there is none. Through our support and along with a number of other Episcopal churches in the northern Virginia area and beyond, a new Vocational Center was recently acquired in 2016, so when the recent earth-quake came again, our kids were protected. This is an example of what can happen when people come together with open hands and hearts. Giving is an act of worship and when we give we give to the glory of God. Partner with us at Trinity Episcopal church and give to the Haiti Micah Project of Mirebalais in Haiti, by supporting the Haiti Micah Project here at home in the USA. God bless!
After the devastating earthquake of 2010, several members of our church were looking for ways to help. We were looking for an organization that could really put our dollars to work helping the children. We found what we had been looking for in the Haiti Micah Project! We have been supporting 10 kids for many years and have posted their pictures on our church bulletin board. Thand HMP for the wonderful work you do!!
HMP is doing great work year round, but especially during times of catastrophe. If you are looking for a worthwhile and impactful charitable organization, HMP will exceed your expectations.
In May 2016, I had the honor and privilege to visit Haiti, its beautiful countryside and the beautiful people of the Haiti Micah Project. Faith, hope and love were all present in each encounter. Faith, hope and love could also be found within the continued success of the project's feeding program, educational program and the children's home. Love in action reigns.
I have been donating to Haiti Micah Project since 2011 and I currently sponsor three children. Haiti Micah Project keeps me in close contact with the lives of the children. It does this through their newsletter and posted mail as well as email. I have been impressed with the transparency of the program, including its financial reports. It is clear to me that funds are going directly to the best use of the children. From the newsletters, I can tell that Haiti Micah is beginning to hire staff who are in charge of the various programs.
It's been a decade since we at Trinity Church in Arlington have been working with the Haiti Micah Project. They are our go to organization for accurate information on conditions and happenings in Haiti. We currently sponsor five children and young people through HMP's orphanage in Mirebalais. This is one outstanding organization that recruits on the ground assistance from Haitians and makes certain the program they offer responds to compelling human needs as defined by the recipients. We anticipate supporting this organization for many more years to come. Want to impact Haiti in a lasting positive way. Contact HMP.
I became involved with the Haiti Micah Project about 6 years ago and then had the fortunate experience of visiting Mirebalais, Haiti and seeing firsthand what this Project is doing for the children who are looked after by this program. There is a dedicated staff, the children are fed one very nourishing noonday meal (this may be their only meal) and their schooling and uniforms are paid for by sponsorships, as is their healthcare. I have seen the desperate poverty that is Haiti and am enlightened by the organization and their dedication to the health and well-being of these children. There are few paid staff and many volunteers helping these children to grow to their full potential. Money was recently raised to build and equip a vocational school so when any child finishes high school they can learn a vocation and consequently become contributing members of society; thus providing more hope for the future of this country . Father Joseph Constant, who founded this organization, is one of the most extraordinary and dedicated men I have ever encountered in improving the lot of Haitian children . He inspires us with his trust and patience that with kindness and compassion, as well as funds, there is hope for the children of this devastated country.
I have been affiliated with non-profits for much of my life so I speak from experience that this one should be given your highest ranking. Thank you!
