About the Haiti Hope Fund
Today, eighty percent of people in Haiti live in poverty. For most families, this means that education takes a back seat to the daily struggle for existence. Only fifty percent of children attend elementary school, and fewer, less than twenty two percent, are able to attend to high school. Just a handful of these young people have the life-changing opportunity to go to college. So many people in Haiti just seem to have no hope. But there is hope.
Haiti Hope Fund has provided funding and support for Christian education, health clinics, and the Arts in Northern Haiti during the difficult times that the country has faced. We are committed to continuing our mission to bring hope through the struggles that lie ahead for Haiti.
Haiti Hope Fund was established in 1993 as a 501(c)( 3) tax exempt non-profit organization by Harold and Ivah Heneise, following their 45 years of missionary service in Haiti. Over the years the vision of Haiti Hope Fund has not wavered: to see Haiti transformed by God’s power, working through His people. Our mission is to provide life-changing education, Christian discipleship, and leadership training to young people in Haiti. To accomplish this mission, Haiti Hope Fund provides support to primary schools for early education and evangelistic opportunities, to rural clinics to help alleviate chronic health problems, to the North Haiti Music Camp for music education and leadership training, and to North Haiti Christian University (known in Haiti as UCNH) for the preparation of future Christian leaders for Haiti.
