Food and Education

Money will be directed to our feeding and education programs that feed 400-500 children a day and educate over 350 children. Your generosity will unleash the power of food and education for a child living in extreme poverty.
To provide life-saving needs of a daily meal, clean water, healthcare, clothing, educational assistance, and vocational training for children and young adults living in Mirebalais, Haiti that will prepare them for responsible lives in their community after graduating from high school.
Haiti Micah Project Policy on In-kind Donations
The work of the Haiti Micah Project is dependent on the generosity of its many supporters, and we are grateful for all donations. However, for several reasons, we strongly discourage in-kind donations of clothing, school supplies, personal care items, and similar items. For such items, donors are encouraged to donate money so we can buy them locally in Haiti.
Shipping items to Haiti is very expensive and can take months to arrive. Additionally, picking up shipments involves an arduous and expensive round trip from Mirebalais to Port-au-Prince. Most items we need can be readily purchased in Haiti for significantly less than the cost of shipping. Purchasing locally has the added benefit of supporting the local economy.
In-kind donations of unique or scarce materials can be considered on a case-by-case basis and, in such cases, we will need additional assistance to cover the costs of shipping. Questions to the Haiti Micah Project can be directed firstname.lastname@example.org.
A message of thanks from Emmanuel.
