Helping the People of Haiti Help Themselves
Our mission is to empower those who are trapped in poverty through education in communities where there is little or no opportunity for a sustainable future.
Aid in Action is a service organization that provides people and resources to help the Haitian communities in Cit`e Soleil and Citi De Repatriates. Aid In Action provides training for teachers, uniforms for school children and the proper tools and instruction for midwife services. In addition, we provide a trade school education for students that promotes economic growth and stability to the individual and their community.
August 2020 News:
Jean Dube - Experts said that during the month of May, COVID-19 would reach its peak in Haiti and the rate of spread of infections and deaths would be catastrophic. Statistic since then have shown us the opposite. COVID-19 infection rates have stayed relatively low compared to our Neighbors in the Dominican republic.
But while Haiti has been able to withstand COVID-19, it hasn’t had much luck dealing with its own problems. Haiti has been in a downward spiral since last November with constant country lockdowns, pressuring the president to step down. The gourde has gone from 70 gourde to 120 gourde for 1 US dollar in less than a year. Life has become almost twice as expensive, but wages are the same.
The City of Repatriates and Neighboring town Fontaine have completely changed and are now being run by gangs from Cite Soleil.
Electricity is another serious issue countrywide, no one getting power. We just got power two days ago for the first time in 45 days.
The Mayor’s and Senators terms are over and there will be elections soon, so far the political issues have started again in Croix de Mission and Tabarre.
Schools are making an attempt to open, they are starting out with the older kids to see how it works before opening up school for the younger children.
In Haiti, school uniforms can be a determining factor in whether parents and children choose to go to school. School uniforms represent pride. School uniforms are unique to each school, and therefore, give children a sense of pride in the school they attend and in themselves. Children who have uniforms to wear do not have to be concerned about whether they are dressed differently from other children. School uniforms can be as simple as a jumper for girls and a pair of slacks for the boys with matching shirts for both genders.
