Since the devastating earthquake in January 2010, Haiti has struggled to recover in the face of rebuilding the infrastructure, livelihoods and social systems. The reconstruction has been slow and inconsistent on behalf of the government and international community. Yet Haitians are hopeful and motivated for change – and many are acting on that hope. An emerging middle class, improved transportation and communications infrastructure and increased investment in Haiti is resulting in many new and exciting opportunities. 

Since 2009, Vibrant Village Foundation has invested over $320,000 annually to support the Colorado-based nonprofit HaitiChildren, Oxfam America, Haitian NGO Sonje Ayiti, and micro-finance agency FINCA International.

In Port-au-Prince, we provide all operational costs for the John Branchizio School, serving over 600 students from kindergarten through 12th grade. In the North, our partners team up to provide access to credit for small businesses, goat-rearing training and inputs, water systems rehabilitation and warm meals for 950 children and elderly. Starting in 2014, we began a partnership with Oxfam America in Haiti’s fertile Artibonite Valley, focused on improving and diversifying rural livelihoods to increase income and food security for farmers and their families
