I came to know about this great organization via Father Joseph Constant. When I became a donor, I received ongoing communication about how exactly my funds were used. In addition, I received ongoing updates on the progress of the young man's whose education my donations were helping. The need is great within the Mirebalais community. Kudos to the Haiti Micah Project.

The Haiti Micah Project is serving hundreds of children in Mirabalais, Haiti who otherwise would not have regular meals. As well, the project is providing education and now has students who have gone on to higher education in trades. The program is making a significant impact on the community served. It would be a wonderful thing if this program could be replicated, through the proper resources, across Haiti.

I saw first-hand the great work of Haiti Micah Project when I was volunteering at an organization next door in Mirebalais. The children in the HMP orphanage were incredibly kind, curious, and motivated to improve their lives through the education and resources provided to them by HMP's programs. I still stay in contact with some of the children I became friends with while I was visiting, and I know HMP has done everything in their power to not only provide them with basic needs but also support them through vocational training (even sending a few of the older kids to university.) The organization spends all the money it can on its programs: for the children at the orphanage and surrounding areas through its food security and training projects. They are also eager to learn and update their practices to better serve their beneficiaries. I have full confidence in the organization and know that they put every donor dollar to good use.

Working through my church I have been donating time and treasure to the Haiti Micah Project since 2010. It is truly by and for Haitians especially the most needy children. Having visited the Haiti Micah Project in Mirebalais twice (others in my church have visited two additional times). I can confirm that financial and material contributions go directly to those beloved children. When Cholera came the Micah project build a small water treatment plant using Haitian labor and no one got sick. As beneficiary children completed highschool a trade school was founded entirely by Haitians to add valuable skills. All of this is done by and for Haitians and provides employment for Haitian teachers, facilities staff and more. This is a model of how third world philanthropy should work.

Haiti Micah Project is always my charity of choice. Started by Haitians for Haitians, its dedication to “the least of these” the street children of Haiti, is extraordinary. To know that one hundred percent of what I give to them goes to feeding, clothing, and educating these brave children is what keeps me giving. These children are the future of Haiti and the face of hope.

Haiti Micah Project is an organization that is focused on helping destitute kids in Mirebalais, Haiti. By focusing on special projects, like the yearlong feeding program, the school assistance program and the trade school program, the organization is able to adequately manage all donations and appropriately fund the execution of these programs.

Dynamic and dedicated volunteers in Haiti and in the US are making Micah Project goals a reality. The people of Mirebalais and especially the kids that are benefiting these programs have testified positively through the years on the tremendous impact of the organization on the ground. Donating some of my time to Micah Project is one of the most fulfilling thing that I have done. Helping kids to grow body and soul to become responsible members of Haiti's society and the ultimate goals of Micah Project .

The Haiti Micah Project makes efforts to help children at risk and their community. I truly experienced that the people working with this organization are ones who truly care about the cause and are not involved for selfish reasons. I can tell that every interaction they have with the kids are genuine and come from the heart. This is an organizations based on changing lives of others and giving back. They can easily give money to the children and leave them alone but they help with education, food and making sure they can be financially stable beyond the help of Micah. I truly enjoyed working with Sarah Desir. Her efforts made it easy and fulfilling for me to contribute what I could to help with the project. If you are looking for a charity to support please support this one.

I have volunteered for Haiti Micah Project for 7 years. Since 2010, HMP has served more than 100,000 meals to children and young adults in the Mirebalais and Central Plateau area. Since 2009, HMP has provided 24 -hour care beginning with 10 children to now 25 children. Through the years HMP has been a volunteer organization in the US. In 2018 an administrative assistant was hired to facilitate program development and collaboration with staff in Mirebalais. The current areas of focus are in education: elementary through high school and limited vocational training classes. There are now 10-15 students graduating from high school each year. HMP is currently preparing two young men for college and one young man for a career in carpentry.

The dedication of both the US and Haitian board members is inspiring. We get to see direct impact in the lives of children and youth in Haiti's central plateau. They have nourishing food, education, a safe place to live and regular access to health services. HMP raises up future community leaders and give everyone hope for a better future.

I started volunteering with Haiti Micah Project 8 years ago, at a time in my own life when I needed to find direction. Through helping the children of Mirebalais and growing and working with the other dedicated volunteers, I have learned what love, faith, hope, honesty and charity truly mean. It is a blessing to do this work.

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."
