We want to see people in rural Haiti sustainably support their families physically, economically and spiritually, with the dignity every person deserves.
We seek to eradicate poverty in the Duvivier region of northern Haiti, one family at a time.
How do we seek to accomplish this?
Intentionality is critical to success in accomplishing lasting change. All that we hope to see done by others must first be modeled by Duvivier Project. So, how do we do it?
Hope is essential
Without hope anyone can easily "give up". To persevere under duress requires hope.
In recognition of this value, we strive to instill into our community “what could be”…. something to shoot for. A reason not to give up and let the winds of fate wither away their lives.
all people are significant
All too often people only pay attention to those who can benefit them. We believe everyone matters.
We seek to encourage the young inexperienced, they may have some great ideas. We reach out to those without, they too can accomplish great things
creativity is encouraged
Ingenuity is often bred out of hard times and poor circumstances.
We love to bring new ideas to those we serve, they know how to work…. harder than most people!
sustainability is paramount
Pactical solutions to everyday problems that produce long-term results, this is the goal
Living hand-to-mouth develops a short-term mentality that translates into every fiber of the culture and economy. A new paradigm is needed.
Partnerships are required
Traditionally partnerships are not valued in Haitian culture. We want to change that perspective.
By modeling how to work with partners, whether they be community stakeholders, outside entities, or foreign organizations.
We believe 2 + 2 = 3
