About Haiti Development Project


Haiti Development Project (HDP) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that was founded in the State of New York in an effort to provide education to unschooled children in the rural Northwest Haiti regions of Port-de-Paix and L’Île de la Tortue.   
 
In 2010, the organization launched its One Plus One Education Initiative, a publicly funded initiative that annually supported the primary school enrollment of one hundred unschooled children in the rural region of La Vallée on L’Île de la Tortue (the most poverty-stricken and remote island in Northwest Haiti). 
 
Currently, Haiti Development Project (HDP) is supporting the education of 200 school children at the Ecole d’Encadrement des Enfants in the rural community of Paulin, Lacorne in the Northwest region of Port-de-Paix.

For Haiti Development Project (HDP), all children deserve a chance to succeed in life, and education is one of the most practical path to life’s successes. The mission of Haiti Development Project (HDP) is ‘pou l’ouvri pòt la nan edikasyon pou tout timoun an Ayiti,’ (translation in English, ‘to open the door to education for every child in Haiti’).   Our goal is to provide every Haitian child the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, motivation and value necessary to succeed in life.

Translation of Mission in English: To Open the Door to Education for Every Child in Haiti

Haiti Development Project (HDP) speaks for thousands of invisible children in rural Northwest Haiti who are growing up illiterate and without the necessary resources to succeed in life. 

For this important reason, Haiti Development Project (HDP) is championing the cause for universal primary education enrollment for thousands of unschooled children in rural Haiti. 

We are one of a small number of NGOs operating and planting seeds in a region that is mostly isolated, poverty-stricken, underdeveloped and neglected. 

Little is known and has been written about Northwest Haiti -- Haiti Development Project (HDP) is committed to changing that reality for the global community.

The mission of Haiti Development Project (HDP) is ‘pou l’ouvri pòt la nan edikasyon pou tout timoun an Ayiti.’
