Mission Haiti is passionate about its mission and doing wonderful things to empower the people of Haiti. I have seen first hand the impact the organization has had on elder care, education, farming, and the care of malnourished babies and children. It is a life-changing privilege to travel to Haiti with this organization. The Haitian people are resilient and kind and need all of the help we can provide.

Mission Haiti impresses me with the job they do teaching the students in our school the importance of serving others. Young students excited about helping other young students.... That is rewarding and touching to witness!

Mission Haiti has been a part of my life since I was a little kid, I was always hearing about Haiti, sending school supplies, and raising money. My senior year of High School I had the opportunity to travel to Haiti for the first time and again this past summer. Both of my trips were amazing, thanks to the dedicated leaders and volunteers of Mission Haiti. I am so grateful and proud to be part of such an amazing Non-Profit!

This past summer I was lucky enough to travel to Haiti with Mission Haiti Inc. The work they do in Haiti is amazing! They support a primary school in Leogane as well as provide scholarships for students. In addition they support a sustainable farm in Leogane which provides food for schools in the area. Mission Haiti is passionate about their work and they are really making a difference!

This summer I was fortunate enough to travel to Haiti with Mission Haiti. Through this incredible organization I was able to experience the gentle spirits of the Haitian people. On this trip I was able to work with Haitian children, visit the Farm, and see the Annunciation School facilities. After going on this trip I know that every dollar being donated to MH is being put to good use to help ensure a better future for the people in Haiti. MH is dedicated to providing a better life of sustainability and quality for the people down there. Not only is Mission Haiti extending a helping hand to the people in Haiti, it also allows people within it's own community to be changed as well through their experiences. I was so happy to give a little bit of my time down in Haiti and know that someday I will be back.

Traveling to Haiti with the Mission Haiti Family was an incredibly humbling experience. Haitians are incredibly hopeful and value every interaction they have. Working with the children who crave interaction with their whole being was the most rewarding experience I had. I fell in love with so many kids at the hospital down there, and I hope I made some smidge of a difference in their lives, because they changed mine. Mission Haiti is an incredible non profit that gives so many people the opportunity to serve Haitians and have some understanding of the struggles in Haiti. Mission Haiti does make a difference.

Mission Haiti inc is an amazing organization that brings down people of all ages to volunteer and experience Haiti first hand. This past summer I was able to go to Haiti with Mission Haiti and without their dedicated members this opportunity would not have been possible for me. I was so glad to be able to give my time to see and make a difference in Haiti. Mission Haiti runs two schools, a farm, and a home for women in Leogane, and also volunteers with the Missionaries of Charity in Port-au-Prince.

Mission Haiti Inc. is changing lives--from kindergarten kids to university students, elderly women, a farming community, and the Americans touched by the Haitians we serve. Mission Haiti Inc. proves that a little, by American standards, can go a long way in Haiti to help Haitians help Haitians. How do I know? I've seen it first-hand. I have volunteered for this organization since 2007 and have made three trips in the past three years to visit our partners and projects in Haiti as a board member. We are an all-volunteer organization--0% of donations goes to paying American staff or renting offices in Minneapolis. We rely on in-kind donations as well as monetary donations to get the job done. But we also rely on our great supporters spreading the word of our life-giving work. Thank you!

I traveled to Haiti for this first time this year with Mission Haiti Inc. and it was an amazing experience. It was obvious to me that Mission Haiti has been working and networking in Haiti for many years as evidenced by the strong and good relationships between the board members and our partners in Haiti. I visited the students at the primary and secondary schools, the ladies at the home for elderly and abandoned women, and the sustainable farm project, all of which are making great progress. The ladies sang to us in greeting which was so special. My commitment to support this organization was only made stronger by this experience and I cannot wait to go back!

I was fortunate enough to travel with Mission Haiti in June 2014, something I had been looking forward to for 4 years. I learned so much about myself through our service, but even more importantly I learned about the reality of what is going on in Haiti and how much more there is still left to do. The people we met really could not have been more hospitable and I am so grateful I had this opportunity. My favorite thing about Mission Haiti is that those in leadership positions make very careful decisions regarding funding and other services to give as much benefit as possible to those who need it. They also showed us that you don't have to be rich or powerful to make a difference; anyone can do something as long as it's done with great love!

Mission Haiti doesn't filter money -- it goes directly to Haitians in need for medical services, training, education, farming, schools, and elder care. The board members I know are exceptionally caring people and highly dedicated to the organizational goals. This is a truly exceptional organization.

Visiting Haiti with Mission Haiti, Inc. was something I've wanted to do for some time now. When the opportunity arose to go I grabbed that chance and went in June. Every moment was valuable from the people I traveled with, the babies we cared for, the elderly women that we met, our time spent with the students of Annunciation and exploring the farm. Mission Haiti, Inc. is striving for sustainability and dignity for the people of Haiti.

I visited Haiti with MHI last year. It was an amazing experience to see the love and compassion of the director and those who support this organization. They are doing things not just to benefit the people there "today" but also in to the future. They support the schools with quality education and are now providing college scholarships. That is the only way things will change is to give hope to the children. Caring for the elderly and supporting agriculture is also a part of this organization. All of it is done with a devotion to the people of Haiti.

My wife and I and our 5 children have been active with Mission Haiti for about 3 years. We have all traveled to Haiti on humanitarian missions several times. Working to care for sick children and spending time with the elderly "ladies". Singing, dancing and loving every minute of it. Mission Haiti has an amazing spirit and is on the ground, making a difference in the lives of the sick and poor. MHI is also working to educate young Haitians to build a vital and renewable human resource to help sustain continuous development and improvements for all Haitians. The MHI board and volunteers have dedicated themselves with energy, hard work, love and compassion. I would highly recommend MHI to everyone who wants to make the world a better place!

I started as a rather distant observer and slowly but surely became familiar and then more actively involved in Mission Haiti Inc. From there things just continued on an unplanned path. My daughter and I took our first trip to Haiti in January 2014 and fell head over heels in love with both the country and the people. Mission Haiti is small enough to feel like an extended family and allow anyone who wants to to roll up your sleeves and make a difference and large enough to truly collaborate with the Hatian people in a promising partnership on a global level.

Mission Haiti and the people of Haiti have captured by heart. Our time in Haiti was spent in Leogane and Port-au-Prince. One can read a lot of reports about the good works of a lot of people there, but nothing substitutes for walking the streets, being with the children, ministering to the elderly women, experiencing the great beauty as well as the dire poverty. The people of Haiti live the reality of all of this with such hope. Mission Haiti makes it possible for this experience with such care and support.

My first visit to Haiti was in 2011. Mission Haiti was the best group that I could have gone with for an unforgettable experience. Mission Haiti has established wonderful contacts both for the incredible work that it does as well as for introducing new people to the reality of Haiti. The Farm is a success story beyond words with potential for further growth. Annunciation School and the Village speak of the dedication of many people to support the children, families, and women of Leogane. The visit provided the background and impetus for the Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in the US and Canada to also become involved in the ongoing work of MH. It is a gift to be associated with the group. During our visit we visited a number of initiatives in Leogane and Port-au-Prince that opened my eyes to the resilience and dedication of the Haitian people in the face of insurmountable odds.

My husband and I have been a part of Mission Haiti since it was founded in 2006. We began going to Haiti in 2005 to visit our sister school of Annunciation and home for elderly women. It was a life changing experience that has brought us many blessings during our retirement years. We both have been back every year, and often more frequently. Each visit increases our dedication and love of all the Haitian people, especially the Sisters of the Companions of Jesus, the children at the school and the women who live in the Village of Jesus. We have experienced the devastation caused 2010 earthquake and several hurricanes and watched as our Haiti friends have worked with determination and certitude to repair and rebuild over the years. We have been encouraged by the growth of the sustainable farm project which the sisters manage and we help to support. Our immersion trips have provided the opportunity for some 56 friends, relatives and parishioners to experience and support our vision and work in Leogane. Connie

Mission Haiti works efficiently, and with very little overhead, and they inform their choices by much hands-on experience on site. They facilitate many volutneer trips to Haiti where not only are contributions used wisely, but also relationships are forged and sustained. The travellers to Haiti go on to engage more people with the good work of Mission Haiti, providing education and perspective to all the donors and potential donors.

I recently traveled to Haiti in June. As a member of the board for MHI, I am truly blessed to be involved with this organization. Leogane, Haiti has become my home away from home. The children at both the primary and secondary school, ladies at the Village of Jesus, the Sister of the Companion of Jesus, and all those living at Bethleem Farm have touched my heart and impacted my life beyond words. I am sincerely grateful for our donors/partners and all they have done in impacting the lives of those whom we serve. Working hand in hand with those in Haiti, we are making a difference. I am fortunate to be able to travel to Haiti and witness this first hand. We have made a lot of progress over the past year due to our partners and donors. The dormitories in the Village are near completion. It has taken years to rebuild from the earthquake. The women in the Village of Jesus are receiving good health care, daily visits from a nurse and monthly visits from a doctor. Children have the opportunity to attend school, receive a daily meal and teachers are continuing in their education to reach a higher level of certification. MHI is sincerely grateful to all those who sponsor a student. Bethleem Farm has just received a tractor and visions of a plentiful harvest are in the future. We are a dedicated group of volunteers that works hands on in Haiti. The Sisters guide us in our steps to help provide what is the best for their community. Thank you once again to all those who support us in our mission, and for all those who pray for us.- Anita

My first trip to Haiti was in 2006. Upon returning, I knew that my heart belonged to Haiti and to all those that I had met. I was truly blessed when I met the staff and children at Annunciation School, the beautiful women that live at the Village of Jesus, and those I met at Bethleem farm. These people are now my family and I am welcomed "home" each time I return. My relationship with all of them has enriched my life. We walk together in our struggles, we celebrate progress, our accomplishments, and embrace our blessings with gratitude. We laugh, cry, and pray as one. It is truly an honor to serve on the board of Mission Haiti Inc. (MHI) and have the opportunity to work side by side with the Haitians whom we serve. I have seen many non-profits in Haiti begin projects and then leave. Mission Haiti supports education, elder care, and sustainable farming in Leogane, Haiti. We are committed to our projects and look forward to the future with hope. MHI is making a difference in the lives of those whom we serve. - Anita

I have been involved with Mission Haiti for a number of years and visited there in January, 2009 as part of the mission group. I have always been very impressed with the Mission Haiti board and all they are able to do for the development of this country just from the U.S. Visiting as part of a mission trip was even more enlightning. To see the love of the members for the Haitians whether the nuns doing incredible work, the children at the schools in the small towns and villages, the babies at the orphanges or the senior citizens in need of attention and help was incredible as was the way the love was returned to our group. No matter where we went everyone was very happy to greet us and accept our help and assistance. Despite the language differences in most areas, things were done in a very efficient and even exciting manner. I know that Mission Haiti, with their dedicated people and the plans they have for further aid and development of the schools and agriculture etc. will continue to be very successful in the growth and success of the people of Haiti.

My involvement with Mission Haiti, Inc. has been as a Director of the Congregation of St. Joseph Generous Promise Grant Fund. We, Sisters of St. Joseph have funded this extraordinary group for the past 3 years. I had the wonderful opportunity this year to be on site and experience the great work that is being accomplished by MH, empowering the Haitians themselves to making system changes especially in the area of education. The children were so full of life, so happy, and so wanted to be in these schools both elementary and secondary. MH is giving them the opportunity for learning by providing for good teachers and a stable environment run by the Haitian Sisters, the Companions of Jesus.

Over the past couple of years I've been blessed to work with this wonderful organization. I have had the opportunity to personally witness the sustainable and life-giving work that they do in Haiti. Their programs help educate, employ, and care for the people of Haiti in a manner that is sustainable and dignified. Their support goes beyond the physical needs to the spiritual. This is evident when you look upon the faces of the people they help care for, all the while doing their work with great courage, humbleness, and joy. Working with Mission Haiti has given me great hope!

I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of non-profits, in a variety of settings. Sometimes, I leave such experiences with a sense of powerlessness and defeat... as if what little was accomplished will never sustain itself.. will never mature or blossom into something more. This is the opposite of the feeling I have received while volunteering over the past few years with Mission Haiti, Inc. MH inspires hope in me because it strives not merely to do for others, but to empower others to do for themselves... MH trusts in the unique giftedness of individuals and helps Haitians to use their own strengths, values, and ideas, to create that which is meaningful to them. MH serves others with an admirable sense of humility, generosity, and compassion. I feel truly blessed to know and work with these people and this organization.

I live in Haiti and work with another organization in Leogane. I have worked on projects right next to MH in Leogane. I have been witnessing the good work there and am proud to have had a part by being a donor. The work is down to earth and worth it. I actually looked for this organization for some time--just didn't have the name or contact info. When I finally found out where they were I couldn't believe it--really close to where I live. They are not austentatious and from my conversations with folks who are a part of this I know that this organization is out to serve. One of the pioneers of this organization once gave me a small card which I had pinned to the cork board beside my desk. It read "You haven't lived today unless you have done something for someone who can never repay you. " I have worked in this community for more than a year and know how needy the people are. There is about 80-85% unemployment here. Many of the homes were destroyed by the earthquake. I have been helping with overseas projects on site for the last 26 years. In Latin America and the Carribean and the work in this rea is very challenging but very fulfilling, too. MH is one of the good ones!

I feel blessed to personally know the people who are dedicating their lives for the purpose of empowering people in Haiti, namely the non-profit organization Mission Haiti, Inc. I traveled to Haiti with Mission Haiti, Inc. and witnessed first hand the incredible relationship that has transpired through the years between the people of Leogane, and this non-profit group of compassionate, dedicated, loving people. I'll never forget how the group was received by the children of Annunciation School in Leogane, with outstretched arms and cheers of welcome. The amazing education these children are receiving is allowing them to climb out of the culture of poverty they live with daily and is enhancing their development as they grow into the hope for Haiti's future. Mission Haiti, Inc. is responsible for this empowerment and so much more. God speed to all those involved.

Mission Haiti, Inc has a model that promotes social justice. I was so impressed by this organization as I traveled to Haiti and watched as they supported the Haitians working day in and day out to make it a better country. They raise money and then give it to empower the Haitians who run the school farm, and home for elderly. People are living dignified lives because of Mission Haiti, Inc.
