The work done by Haiti Micah Project meets the critical needs of the children of Mirebalais in the Central Plateau. They provide daily food and subsidize education for 500 children. They run a children's home and they built and manage a Vocational Training Center. Their efforts change the lives and the future of these children.
I have been donating to the Haiti Micah Project for some years now, and will continue because I am supremely confident that my contributions will be maximized and put to the very best use in providing food, shelter, and education for the children who are fortunate enough to benefit from the HMP. My prayer and hope is that the HMP will receive the support it needs to enable it widen its sphere of charity, thereby helping the most vulnerable, the children we hold so dear.
HMP is a world class organization that is always striving to do more for the poor and marginalized in Haiti. Reverend Joseph is one of the most dedicated and comapsssionate men I've ever met
Our church as been associated with Haiti Micah for many years, and we have sponsored a child for at least 7. We feel that the information provided by the program both directly and through our church provides transparency and allows us to see both the need for our support and the benefit that they receive.
Well managed charity with an awesome mission: to sustain and educate homeless children in a desperately poor country.
I have followed Haiti Micah Project since it’s beginnings. HMP changes lives: hungry children are fed, orphans find a home, young adults learn marketable skills.
This is a positive and successful support program with a proven track record. Feeding children, teaching them and providing a safe and living home with wonderful Christian workers who live their faith.
Haiti Micah Project is doing invaluable work. I have sponsored a child each year for several years to fund housing, food and education in the projects residential facility for some of the most vulnerable children. There are many success stories among these children.
Our family has been involved with Haiti Micah project for several years since our daughter introduced us to some of the children being helped while she was working and volunteering in Haiti. The Haiti Micah Project is passionate in helping orphans and children without any means of support. There work is vital to the Mirebalias community. They feed hundreds of children daily and desperately need additional funds to support their efforts, especially after the recent national disasters. In the midst of very challenging physical world they have created a supportive and caring environment for the orphans that have been fortunate enough to be able to be supported through their education, physical needs and career training. Supporting the Haiti Micah project means saving lives and changing lives with hope and a future.
I've worked with the Haiti-Micah Project for several years now. This is a great organization, run by wonderful people, doing very important work!
The HMP is an extraordinary endeavor, helping educate, feed, house and support with love, kindness and generosity children who would otherwise be lost. It is efficiently organized with knowledgeable, impressive and honest leadership. Having been to Mirebalais with Joseph Constant and seen the program in action I was both touched and impressed. HMP makes a lasting difference in the children in its care. They are Haiti's future!
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.
Best non-profit we have ever supported - and we have supported them for 10 years. Amazing work; amazing effectiveness- that’s the story oh HMP!
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.
Haiti Micah Project is dedicated to its mission of providing food, clean water, healthcare, clothing, educational, and vocational services for the children of Haiti. Its people are committed to that mission.
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.
I have been working with Haiti Micah for about a year now and this has been the most fulfilling experience.This is a non-profit where you see the difference being made in the lives of the people of Mirebalais, Haiti.Haiti Micah helps the whole community by its presence in Mirebalais Haiti. Haiti Micah has been instrumental in helping so many young people graduate high school thanks to the steadfast support of supporters and sponsors.There is much more to be done and I trust that Haiti Micah will continue to respond to the needs of the people of Haiti.
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.
Join the Haiti-Micah Project and give a generation of kids and young adults the opportunity to learn meaningful skills with which they contribute to the development of sustainability of their community.
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.
Best international charity I have worked with in the past 40 years!
I have been affiliated with HMP for over 8 years and consider this organization to be game-changing for those children in the program. This great non-profit is committed to the provision of the basic needs of a daily meal, clean water, healthcare, clothing, educational assistance, and vocational training for the impoverished children living in Mirebalais, Haiti. HMP is a Christian organization with a great board of directors who are hands-on in their administration of the program and selfless in their dedication to the mission of the Haiti Micah Project.
They do a great job of creating opportunities for young people who will in turn be able to help others improve their community.
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.
Knowing that all of the resources raised go directly to support the children of Haiti Micah Project is phenomenal. One of the most efficient, impactful organizations that exists.
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.
The Rev. David Marshall
St. Dunstan's Church,
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!!
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!
I was lucky enough to visit this project and see the love and care the children get by the founders of HMP and other Haitians living in Mirebelais. It truly warms one's heart to watch the hot meal/ feeding program happen. It takes so little to feed and educate a child- a real leg up on their future.
This charity has been a consistent blessing in my life to connect my interest in small volunteer projects and giving back to areas in need around the world. I have sponsored a child there for over two years now.
My school has been working with the Haiti Micah Project ever since Father Constant came and visited our school. The program has made a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of severely impoverished children and families. Through their school, home for orphans, vocational school, and feeding program, the Micah Project touches many lives on a direct level.
Over 1 Million Meals Served! Over 10 Years of Truly Amazing Service! Inspiring!
This non-profit was the perfect choice for my choice charity because of their organization and hands on work proof from their online newsletter and updates.
The HMP was introduced to our school 5 years ago by our teacher, Alexia Etienne. Since then, our school has grown in community with Haiti, and because of our connection, has made us a better school. So thank YOU, Haiti Micah Project. You think we are helping you, but in reality you have helped us grow as a caring community. It is amazing to see what you have done in the lives of so many children. And isn't that our mission here on earth? Peace to all our friends in Haiti... Eileen
We can't praise this project enough for its great work in improving the lives of children in Haiti, who will in turn, help others in the future. We thank God for founder Rev. Joseph Constant and his dedicated staff for their unrelenting efforts and integrity. A living example of loving God and our neighbor. Onward and upward!! Bob & Gretel James
I have admired the work of Haiti Micah since I first heard about it about 10 years ago. I have gone from sporadic donations to a monthly gift to support a child. I am grateful for the work of the volunteers and for the opportunity to help in this small way to do a great good. I can see, from the newsletters and photos the great progress of their work and how the people have benefited and their living conditions and prospects have improved since I first started following the effort.
I support a child through the HMP. This nonprofit organization provides support to youth and families so they can work with others to advance Haiti's future and education for all.
I have been interested in the work of the Haiti Micah Project for over three years, first as a volunteer and then as a donor. The dedication, know-how and efficiency exhibited by its founder, the Rev. Joseph Constant, and by the Board members are impressive! They never rest on their laurels and are always thinking about the next step in the process. What amazes me is how they get things done in the very difficult environment that is Haiti. The building of the vocational training center is a good example of their can-do attitude.
The opportunities they provide to orphaned and indigent children in Mirebalais are life-changing. Please help them in this important work!
The story of HMP is extraordinary. We have supported it since its inception and have watched it develop into one of the most trustworthy charities there ever could be. The ratio of dollars raised to dollars spent exclusively on the population served is unmatched. The ability of HMP to do what it says it will do is unmatched. We have increased our charitable giving to HMP because of its effectiveness and because it represents the best use of our desire to make a difference with our resources.
I witnessed firsthand the great work HMP is doing at the SAES House in Mirebalais. The children there are well taken care of and attending one of the best schools in the town. The children in the program have high hopes for their futures and are happy to tell you about their sponsors and display their correspondences. The staff helps foster a family environment and takes care of the children admirably.
Our congregation has been supporting Haiti Micah Project for several years. We are proud to be sponsors of five young people, most of whom we have seen grow up into beautiful, healthy, productive and intelligent young adults. When it comes to changing lives and improving our world for the better, this organization leads the field. We know that the financial and moral support we provide reaches its intended audience, that we are being kept informed about current needs and developments and that the leaders of Haiti Micah Project appreciate even the littlest we are able to do. My encouragement to all, get on board!
I have sponsored children for a number of years and am very impressed by the quality and dedication of the small staff who conduct this program. they have a unique arrangement, with folks here in the US supporting staff in Mirebalais. That way, donors and sponsors have a very direct link here, and the children have a very strong everyday presence in Haiti. Also, this program seeks to operate its programs in ways that help the local economy, which benefits Haiti in the long run.
This program truly does so much good, and I am proud to support it.
I have watched Haiti Micah Project grow since its beginnings, and I am constantly amazed by how much they do with so little income. I am especially glad that the children are receiving a first-class education, providing hope for their futures. Truly a worthwhile project.
As a member of a church congregation, I have worked closely with the Haiti Micah Project and am constantly amazed by its effectiveness in caring for the children in its charge. Not only does it meet their needs for food and shelter but its school and vocational training programs prepare them to be self-reliant adults. I have visited the project and seen how much it accomplishes on a modest budget. I strongly recommend it as a charity to which one can donate and feel confident that your money will be put to good use.
I have supported the Haiti Micah Project, located in Mirebalais in the country's Central Plateau region, since 2010 and I visited the project in 2011. It has a feeding program for approximately 500 children in the town and provides housing, medical care and education for 23 children. It has built and is operating a water purification system that is critical to a population located at the epicenter of Haiti's cholera epidemic. So as to provide future employment opportunities for the project's children, it plans to build a vocational school and is raising funds for this effort. Founded by an Episcopal priest of Haitian birth, the project is a model of effective assistance that addresses the needs of the city's children in a financially responsible way.
The Sponsor and Child Program is a wonderful opportunity for anyone (particularly families with children) to connect and identify with someone a "world away." We all need reminders that the world is bigger than ourselves and that we are in this life together. These lessons are, I think, particularly important for our kids who have so much to be thankful for. By giving, we receive.
The children served by the Haiti Micah Project -- the street children of Mirebalais, Haiti -- are among the most vulnerable in any third world country. Thus, the food, shelter, educational opportunities, and love afforded these children can be the difference between life and death, and a life with meaningful opportunities.
HMP is an all volunteer endeavor. Administrative costs are kept to a minimum. Faith is the motivating factor among the HMP volunteers and the donors, and the results are borne out in children that are not just surviving, but thriving.
My church, through our peace & justice ministry,was looking for small organizations dealing effectively with extreme poverty in the Western Hemisphere, and learned about Haiti Micah Project. They are focused on street children in Mirebalais, Haiti who would otherwise not go to school or have any future. First through a feeding program associated with a local church school. They have expanded to help support many of the needs children have, including clothes, tuition, clean water, vocational training, and for some a residential dormitory. I eventually joined the board, and was very impressed with the desire to keep administrative as close to zero as possible. At the same time they have grown the services as well as the number of children served, especially after the 2010 earthquake drove many people out of Port au Prince. I am no longer on the board since I left the northern Virginia area where HMP is headquartered. You will not find a more dedicated group of people supporting the organization.
The Haiti Micah Project has a life-changing impact on the children it serves in Mirebalais, Haiti. I have been working with the organization since 2006 and have traveled to Haiti three times to see the work of the project. The project currently serves a hot meal to approximately 450 children six days a week and houses, clothes, educates and provides health care for as many of these children as possible. The project also helped bring clean water to the community. Money donated to this organization goes directly to help the children.
I am a Catholic School Teacher in Boston MA., and I have been a supporter of the Haiti Micah Project for about 5 years. My involvement began individually. However, because of the positive, genuine and honorable interactions I’ve had from members of the organization I got my students involved by having them make cards for the children in Haiti to raising funds in a jar. The involvement grew beyond the classroom. To having school wide bake sales, dress down days and selling pizzas during lunch to raise funds. Today we have two sponsored children and thanks to three former students and a supportive school community (faculty, staff, students, parents, parishioners) the Haiti Micah Project continues to help our school community and culture live out the school's Mission. As a result for the past three years, the entire school is involved in a yearly walk to raise funds with all proceeds towards the Haiti Micah Project.
The Haiti Micah Project assists the street children of Mirebalais, Haiti. HMP reaches many of the neediest children in the world, meeting their basic needs by providing food, clean water, housing, health care, education, vocational training, spiritual and emotional care, guidance, and skills. As adults these citizens will play important future roles in improving living conditions in this poverty-stricken country.
The Haiti Micah Project has ZERO fundraising expenses, does NOT compensate any directors or volunteers, and has minimal administrative expenses. Materials and services, including management, administration, legal, financial, and secretarial are donated by dedicated individuals.
