Review for Center of Hope Haiti Inc, Stamford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first exposure to Center of Hope Haiti (COHH) was back in April 2010 when I wanted to show great appreciation and do something impactful for one its leading members who has taken time out of their busy schedule to mentor and assist me with developing professionally. My gift of appreciation was volunteering a week of my time in Haiti at the Center of Hope, preparing the site for its grand opening. The time spent in this country was so life changing that I continue to fund the efforts financially, assist in spreading the word, and make trips down there when I can. The vision and success of this organization is so important, as it serves the underserved, and not only educates its residents, but also exposes them to new opportunities to create economical change and sustainability within their country from the inside out. The government may overlook the people in Hinche, especially the displaced orphans, but with the encouragement and vision that the Center of Hope delivers to the local people holistically, they will be inspired to create change for themselves without handouts. I have been blessed and privileged to be a part of this movement and have dedicated myself to creating change in the Haitian community through organizations like the COHH. I have been inspired to build homes in Haiti, and look forward to doing much more in this country because of the opportunities I’ve been exposed to while volunteering with the Center of Hope Haiti.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I belive this organzation is running as well as it can and well worth the investment of funding and resources. My goal is to contribute more towards both of those necessities through my individual efforts and partnering networks.
