Our mission statement is simple and straightforward “Haiti Mission Incorporated (HMI) is a Louisiana-based, international, development organization that helps build sustainable projects to bring hope, respect, dignity, joy and faith to the people of Haiti.” We are a faith-based organization dedicated to humanitarian aid which includes training, educating and supporting spiritual, physical and economic growth and development.

From the humble beginning of one school with about 200 children, the St. Bridget Haiti Mission School System now affords a basic education to over 300 children in buildings constructed by Haiti Mission in partnership with friends, foundations and Rotary groups.   Twenty teachers are being paid monthly.  Auxiliary aides and cooks are also receiving stipends which will help their children and families. Because of this basic elementary education, secondary and some vocational training which is now being made available these children and adults have hope and promise of a much brighter tomorrow.  The school buildings are being used in the morning for elementary grades – preschool to sixth and in the afternoons for secondary grades - seventh to ninth – and in the evenings for various forms of vocational and life-skills training.   We are so proud that the Haitian Government achievement testing in 2014 to gauge the effectiveness of the national and private schools in Haiti resulted in our sixth graders scoring in the 90 percentile group and the secondary kids scored 100%!  Quite a remarkable and a powerful indicator of the level of dedication of our teachers, administrators and the parents of the children to education.   Our children also get a hot meal every day as well as basic health care by a school nurse.

Thanks so much for your generosity and for helping get long-lasting shoes to our kids!
