Consider Haiti was started over 15 years ago with primary care clinics, medicines, vitamins and water filters. We followed up with sustainable nutrition. In 2010 this follow-up came in the form of 17 does and a buck. Now, we have 750 goats across several villages! We've established a better seeds program for our gardens as well as a system for storing crops to sell when market prices are best. Someday we hope to be totally self-sufficient: growing, selling and eating only local Haitian produce, drinking clean water and building strong communities. But. we still need help for seeds and goats, water filters, medicine, and stipends for our Haitian Community Health Agents.
Our longstanding programs are able to get to the people who need help quickly and efficiently, and we know how to address immediate needs. Consider Haiti work with locals so we are familiar with the people and the area. We can show you where every dollar of your donation is spent.
We are local volunteers, business owners and professionals with a vision.
The Consider Haiti team is 100% donor supported, and none of our US staff is paid-we are all volunteers. We have been working for over 15 years to empower Haitian communities by supporting grassroots efforts to create sustainable nutrition and medical support. We are just local Asheville residents hoping to make a difference in the lives of the children of Haiti.
We use local Haitian teams to support our programs.
We believe the people of Haiti are the best agents to serve their people. We provide the resources and support to fund and care for our four core programs. Consider Haiti also has teams of volunteers including medical personnel that provide week-long clinics for Haitian children.
