Our Partners

Beyond working to educate and engage US Americans in understanding the issues facing - and imposed upon - Haiti, we seek to support grassroots initiatives that are justice-oriented and Haitian-led.

We have worked in solidarity with many of our partners for over a decade. These groups work creatively and effortlessly to address issues in their communities, while also addressing the root-level causes of structural violence head on.

"Since 2000, the What If? Foundation has partnered with members of the Ti Plas Kazo community in Port-au-Prince to provide children in the area with food and educational opportunities. The programs have always been Haitian led and Haitian run and this is why they are so effective. Our relationship is grounded in mutual respect, trust, and the belief that taking small steps at a grassroots level is essential to lasting change.. Our Haitian partners continue to do all they can to support the local economy and agricultural self-sufficiency in Haiti. They buy all the food and supplies for the food program locally, from farmers and small distributors"
