Haiti/Caribbean

Over four years, Faith in Action leaders in Haiti have leveraged $200,000 public and private investments. OPODNE trains 300 leaders, engages 2,500 in community improvement activities like road building, tree planting, clean-ups, and teacher training. They operate three micro-lending programs and sustain six economic development cooperatives (fishing, peanut, vegetable, chicken, bananas, peppers, and household and farm supplies).

Our History in Haiti

Faith in Action International’s newest organizing project, Organisation Peuple Œcuménique pour le Developpment du Nord-Est (OPODNE), was formally launched in August 2014 when 100 leaders from across Northeast Haiti gathered at a General Assembly.

OPODNE has established leadership teams in 11 towns and cities across the Northeast Department. Leaders gather weekly to tackle issues fundamental to the survival of their children and families.

Communities are organizing there labor for basic sanitation, establishing computer training centers for youth, building roads to get their crops to market, and forming cooperatives and micro lending programs to establish a source of income.

Government may be broken in Haiti, but people are not.
