In Haiti, 1 in 10 children live in an orphanage. 80% of these children have families, but their families cannot afford to care for them because jobs in Haiti are scarce. Haiti Babi provides jobs to moms who desperate want to work so they can take care of their children. When you purchase from or donate to Haiti Babi, you are directly helping to keep families together.
As of 2018, Haiti Babi is committed to operating without annual fundraising efforts and strives to be self-supporting and self-sufficient. Unfortunately, even with a good job, life in Haiti can be unduly difficult when unexpected expenses arise. There are no government sponsored social or medical support programs.
As such, your donations can be used three ways.
1.) Cover unexpected expenses incurred by our Artisan Moms for things such as medical, travel or extra living expenses
2.) Unexpected and/or extraordinary overhead and/or operating expenses necessary to keep Haiti Babi operating. These expenses include things such as weather damage recovery, higher than average utility costs, additional training costs and/or new transportation/handling costs for materials.
3.) Use our DONATION page to choose specific items that help cover a family's living needs.
Haiti Babi is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible public charity. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
We genuinely thank you for your contribution. You are helping to change lives.
