Rural Haiti Project
The Rural Haiti Project is a U.S. based youth leadership organization that aims to empower children to become leaders and builders of their communities by conducting programs for low-income at-risk children in rural areas of Haiti. The project fosters children’s civic, social and intellectual development and promotes community engagement and development. The Rural Haiti Project seeks to remediate these deficiencies by motivating, empowering, supporting and strengthening young people in rural areas of Haiti to become leaders and builders of their communities. The organization explores creative ways to engage young people, challenge them and encourage them to reach new heights. The organization engages children at an early age to create and understand their own visions, to identify the positive aspects of their communities as well as identify the problems that their communities face and to collectively create innovative approaches and solutions to bring about change.
