About Us

HSDF uses progressive ideas in sustainably developing communities throughout Haiti. We approach the communities with sensitivity and careful analysis, empowering them to create independent, democratically-conscious communities, without creating a dependency on foreign aid. By allowing the communities to come up with their own projects we give them the confidence and skills needed to finish projects with little outside aid, other than material support and educational seminars on group leadership. HSDF maintains the projects by visiting the sites we develop yearly to maintain close contact with the communities and our projects. In addition,we visit the sites in order to provide technical assistance when needed, and most importantly, we support them emotionally and psychologically, giving them the confidence and motivation to develop and complete projects effectively.
