Self Sustainability

What is Self-Sustainability?

Centuries of political unrest have left the Haitian economy in shambles. The Haiti Orphan Project and others are attempting to bridge the gap between the current poor economy, and a growing and thriving Haiti.

An important aspect of what the Haiti Orphan Project does is best described as “self-sustainability.” In the end, the Haitian people want to take care of their own needs. They do not want to be dependent on organizations such as ours.

Self-sustainability simply means that we do what we can to help the Haitian people lift themselves up economically. This includes assisting the families we serve in setting up micro-businesses which can help them support their own families.  We also make every effort to support the local economy by purchasing goods and services in Haiti if at all possible.
