ENGRISH Activities of “Haiti-no-Kai”

Our aim is to support Haitian people’s lives today by agriculture and to help Haiti to grow tomorrow by education.

We deeply appreciate your support to “Haiti-no-Kai” and Haitian people.

 “Haiti-no-Kai” was founded in June of 1986 with the aim of supporting  Sister Sachiko Hongo, who at that time was actively engaged in the literacy education in Haiti. Though inspired and initiated by the sister, our activities have been free from politics and religious circles, and have been supported by wide-ranging people of goodwill.

In 2002 we organized KFP—Kominote Familyal Peyizan– in collaboration with the Haitian people in Bonabite, Hinche, and have since been helping the people there with life-supporting farming and education. The area of the farms under cultivation is now 7 hectare, where they grow agricultural products like bananas, cassavas, peanuts and others. They are also working hard on stock farming. Ecole Communautaire Bon Sauveur de Bonabit,, the school we built in 2007 was the first educational institution in this area, and the schoolhouse has also been used as a meeting place of the people of this region. In a region where it is hard for the people to have even one meal a day, the school meal is often the only sustenance of the day for a child. So, in order not to keep depending on outside help but to provide the children with school meals by themselves, they are, with our help, doing their best to increase both agricultural and stock farm products.

 We, “Haiti-no-Kai,” will keep on doing our best to help Haitian children.
And we look forward to your continued sympathy and support

Projects we have carried out in Haiti

A project is carried out when three components become one: “Haitians’ ardent will to be independent,” “compassionately offered funds,” and “the power of action of the Japanese leader who presides over the project in Haiti.”

The “compassionately offered funds” are the donations from our supporters and the grants-in-aid from various organizations.   We deeply appreciate your assistance.
