Fondasyon Mapou’s Networking Initiative is an attempt to connect all the non-profit organizations and individuals that work on Haiti related issues
together for the advancement of Haiti. There are hundreds of organizations working in or for Haiti supporting the plight of Haitian people. However, most of these organizations are very distinctive, and each organization creates its own chain of network and remains within its respective community. Fondasyon Mapou seeks to work with the overall collective of organizations through seminars and conferences providing a forum for them to exchange knowledge and experience that can benefit Haiti and
the local communities. Moreover, these sessions will encourage villagers in Haiti to learn about the common problems that are affecting other communities and work together to find better solution.
This initiative will provide these organizations and individuals involved with a network to garner information about the various resources that are available to them in Haiti and abroad. Fondasyon Mapou will collaborate
with organizations that are geared toward skill sharing to seek volunteers who are willing to donate their time and expertise to teach the people in Haiti new skills. This initiative will fill the professional drainage that take place in Haiti whenever a coup d’etat occurred. At the same time, this program gives an opportunity those who have left Haiti a chance
to give back to their community. These efforts certainly enable Fondasyon Mapou to fulfill its goal and put its motto into practice. We strongly believe that only a chain of work involving Haitians, the Haitian Diaspora and the friends of Haiti can “Rebuild Haiti, One Department at Time.” This process will rally the Haitian Diaspora to become investors and stakeholders in the future development of Haiti.
Fondasyon Mapou will use its established network to generate information packages to educate the Haitian communities as well as identifying community resources that can provide services the Haitian people in various communities throughout the U.S. and in Haiti. Fondasyon Mapou will serve as a liaison and resource center for nonprofit organizations, individuals, and the international communities in an effort to educate our constituents while improve the quality of life for Haitians who reside
at home and abroad.
