The vision of the Chanje Movement is to bring a hope and future to the children of Haiti through community transformation and revival. We believe Haitians are the Heroes and we do everything we can to equip and empower the people of Haiti – this generation and those to come – to change their country through self determination and interdependence.
All our in-country staff and volunteers are Haitian. They partner with and provide leadership to a growing network to accelerate social, spiritual, educational and economic development. Staff
serve as liaisons, caregivers, supervisors, pastors and more. Current areas of focus include training for pastors and community leaders, micro-credit lending and community partnerships, serving vulnerable children, building partnerships to make an impact beyond our own reach. We choose to do this with replicable models wherever possible.

CLIMB for Haiti is an American-based non-profit that works with Haitians who have stepped out on their own to follow God’s call on their heart.Our Haitian partner organizations fall under the umbrella of the CLIMB family, while maintaining their individual Haitian leadership. We currently have two partner organizations, Accolade for Saving Lives and Fondation Tous Ensemble Clinic, both in Les Cayes. CLIMB strives to follow Haitian leadership well by providing guidance when asked, fundraising when needed and ongoing skills training in business & financial management, trauma-informed care, and a mindset of sustainability as we move forward together.
Accolade for Saving Lives (ASL) has reunited “street boys” with their families, working to empower employment and educate families while modeling Christ-like love and teaching the gospel message. ASL’s director strives to keep families together by empowering family leadership and placing respect where it belongs – with parents. ASL is operated by 9 Haitian employees. ASL operates a peanut butter production program, a sewing training program, small business loans for program families and is developing other areas to increase their ability to sustain programming.
Fondation Tous Ensemble Clinic provides Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Public Health Education, Disability Awareness, Club Foot Treatment, Orthopedic Prosthesis assessment and production and many more services to the Les Cayes area. Tous sees approximately 60 patients daily. The organization is directed by Haitians, has full time Haitian staff as well as visiting interns and volunteers from Chile, United States, and Canada.
We do a little work in Port au Prince, 3 places in the Caberet area but most of our work is now done in Gonaives as we feel the other areas are doing ok at being Haitian lead.
We have a school, a church, a feeding program, an animal program, a sewing program, and we do clinic work plus pastor training. It is all Haitian run and we are just their to support until it is self sustaining and they are able to manage on their own. We are providing the children with an education but we are also teaching the parents how to make sandals, and other items to sell, we provide them with animals so they may take to market and sell eggs and chickens and goats, pigs and ducks. We provide farming tools and seeds to help those interested in gardening. We provide sewing machines and hold classes for parents to learn how to make a living with this skill.
We also work to keep orphans from going into orphanages by finding a relative that they may live with and we help the family out by providing a sponsor for the child’s schooling, we help with feeding the family if needed, and also getting them involved in some of our programs such as the animal program and sewing classes so the child won’t be a burden on the family.
We also ship in containers and many other missions use the containers to get personal items there along with things they are not able to buy in Haiti (boat motors for a special boat etc) and supplies to keep their missions running (water project equipment etc)
We work primarily in the remote villages on the southwest peninsula of Haiti – Petite Riviere, Saint Jean Du Sud. We travel to the villages of Teneti and Madame Pierre’s on the mountain. Programming and community engagement are at the core of our strategy. We invest heavily in relationships to start programs and support the development of solutions and delivering reliable tools to those who need them the most.ELT believes in empowering the people to be self sustaining and not depending on others. A Home Health program was started for the elderly who cannot afford medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. and provide a limited amount of ROM exercises to the ones who need it. We have started a depot for the local villagers to have access to purchase the main staples of life- rice, beans, oil, water, etc. There is a hunger relief program for those who need it. We are in the process of creating a sewing school to be able to provide a skill that is much needed in the village. Skills are much needed to provide an opportunity for an income. We have an embroidery class called “H.U.G.S.” which stands for Helping Us Grow Spiritually. They were taught a skill of embroidery plus the gospel is being shared and they can interact socially. The towels they embroider are then brought back to the US for sale or they can sell their own. We have provided the materials for chicken houses in two locations with more to come. They are taught how to raise meat chickens and eggs that they can sell to be self sustaining. The goat ministry program is also a way to help families out by providing goats they can raise to sell and also for much needed meat. Education is a very important tool in Haiti and therefore we do look for godparents to provide an opportunity for children to receive their education and prayers. We believe in making strong relationships, love our neighbor as ourselves, and make disciples all for God’s glory.
Gift of Hope is an ethical fashion project protecting people and our earth. We are a socially responsible and environmentally conscious organization breaking the cycle of poverty through job creation and orphan prevention. Founded in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Gift of Hope is changing lives through stable income, discipleship, education, and the investment of relationships. Our goal to raise families out of poverty is a holistic effort to educate and empower the entire family system. We work to provide love, stability, and dignity for our employees because people matter most.
Good Samaritan Foundation of Haiti is a small non-profit (US 501 c 3) from the Virgin Islands. We are a secular, community-based group, we try to connect all aspects of our work into a ‘wheel of life’ so that resources are built up and remain in the community, whether it’s nutrition from our large agriculture program, jobs, scholarships, skills training, education, emergency medical care, water infrastructure, latrines, or knowledge-sharing. All staff are Haitian apart from brief visitors and volunteers, and the overseas administrator, and were already in their two communities doing some of this work since before we were able to unite them. We make it possible for them to take charge of what their communities need.We have 2 schools in Haiti, one on Ile a Vache, and the other between Petit Goave and Grand Goave at Morne Tapion. Each is K-9th grade, around 300 children, and has a full lunch program.
Most of our other programs are on Ile a Vache in a 3 village area. We have a lawyer, 24 teachers, 2 agronomists and many other staff (total 50+) nearly all from the areas they work in. We give scholarships to high-school, trade schools, and university for people who will return to the community.
Our mission is to provide education for children who have otherwise no means of attending school, enabling them to better their lives and the lives of their families.
We bring students into the school system after they’ve been left behind. For many of our students, the only hot meal they eat each day is served at the Greater Good Haiti (Pi Gwo Byen) school. We’ve graduated more than 70 students who we now support in their high school studies. Thanks to our supporters, our program has dramatically changed the trajectory of the lives of our students and their families.

Haiti Awake was founded in 2014 with the goal of relationships that focus on the hope of the Gospel through involvement in community development, economic development, and church-ministry development.We currently employ 12 Haitians in a variety of positions to further the goal of our mission.We also have 13 children in our care, children who are being developed into Kingdom warriors, with one of the goals of our economic development being the creation of real, sustainable jobs for them as they age out of care.The majority of our efforts are concentrated in Tabarre 14, but we do work with pastors in Bon Repos, Canaan, Fondeblan, and Okay, and we have been west of Jeremie since Matthew pursuing relationships in a community which is currently without a Gospel witness.
Our American board strongly believes the following:
Local people are at the heart of what God is doing in any particular place.
Our role is to come alongside them, and strengthen their hand. As outsiders we are called to amplify their voices, lighten their load, equip and support them. For they are the true change-makers.

HANDS & FEET PROJECT in Jacmel
Hands and Feet Project has spent the past 14 years caring for the orphaned and abandoned in Haiti, and fighting to keep families together through job creation. IKONDO, an upscale hosting facility nestled in the mountains above Grand Goave Haiti, is a job-creation, mission-tourism initiative powered by the Hands and Feet Project. IKONDO, poised to change the way the Church approaches Missions in Haiti, hosts traditional missional experiences while providing more upscale hospitality and touristic excursions. It’s our hope that we not only create jobs through mission-tourism, but a more dignified and equitable exchange between our passionate guests and our Haitian hosts.

“We’re a non-profit, Christian organization committed to meeting the spiritual, physical, and educational needs of impoverished families in Haiti. We desire to see future generations of healthy, educated, self-sustaining Haitian communities, living with integrity and striving to make Jesus famous. To see our vision become reality, God has called us to focus our efforts on these 4 directives: care for the vulnerable, create jobs and vocational skills, improve the local healthcare, and train and equip local pastors. Our ministry is focused in the area of Les Anglais, Haiti. We have a local school with over 400 children and support over 20 widows and special needs friends each month. We hold a quarterly medical clinic to help build relationships and meet the medical needs of the community. We are grateful that God has called us to Les Anglais to work the fields so we can bring in a harvest for the Father’s glory! Please visit our website at Harvestfieldhaiti.org for more information.”
We approach Maternal Health care with a model based in quality care, love, respect, and relationship building. The women that enter the prenatal program are known by name, their stories are known by the midwives that help to see them through a safe pregnancy and delivery. The Midwifery Model of care is based on education and relationship. Those two things increase the likelihood of a positive outcome, even in a country where pregnancy is risky.
Heartline Ministries is providing prenatal care, labor and delivery services and postpartum care to the underserved women of Port au Prince.Women join our Prenatal program at the beginning of their pregnancy and come to our center weekly for monitoring and to receive vitamins, a good meal, and an educational class relating to caring for themselves during pregnancy. After the baby is born, often in our own birthing room, the mother and child move into the Child Development class. This class is designed to teach practical parenting skills to the mothers. We are seeing healthy babies being born in Haiti and are so blessed to share in this experience with these precious mothers! And just as important we are seeing mothers survive the birthing experience and return home to their family. It is a sad fact that, in Haiti, too many mothers die during or shortly after birth due to lack of simple medical care leaving their children orphaned. In our maternity center we are turning the tide against this terrible trend. It is our belief that the best way to care for orphans is to prevent this from happening.

KORE’s Poultry Project provides a Haitian the necessary training, finance and oversight to begin a small business of their own, providing food and income security for their family.

One Gift, One Child seeks to show value to those who are abused, neglected, thrown away and looked down upon by the Haitian culture. This has many aspects but the main goal is to provide EVERY child a safe environment where they are protected from abuse, neglect and abandonment. If a child cannot be reunited with their family, then a Haitian foster family will be raised up in order to ensure children are in a loving home versus an institutional orphanage.
Our target group of children we fight to protect are special needs children, sexual abuse victims coming from corrupt orphanages and our community of children who are living under gang influences. We work to prevent orphans by empowering families to defend the weak, rescue the abused, redeem and re-integrate.

We serve primarily in the St Marc area, with a focus on pediatric care.Teams of medical and non-medical volunteers from the US travel to Haiti twice a year to perform school physicals and acute care for Bread of Life Ministries, a Haitian organization that has schools in St Marc, Timonet and Pont Sonde that serve nearly 800 children.We also employ a Haitian pediatrician, whose residency was sponsored by OSMM, to visit Bread of Life Children’s Home every Saturday.
Our newest partnership is with One Gift, One Child, a St Marc ministry started by a Haitian man and his American wife.It is totally staffed by Haitians who provide care for special needs children and minister to the local neighborhood, which is in the poorest part of St Marc.OSMM teams have provided medical care for these children and their parents as well as community health training sessions. They will soon be opening a government approved rescue center for children exploited by corrupt orphanages, with hopes of eventually returning them to their families.
