Our Mission

Empowering young people in Haiti to thrive and achieve their potential.

Thrive

We believe that EVERYONE deserves the chance to THRIVE, but in order to thrive, we all need a little help.

Together

“ANSANM” means “TOGETHER” in Haitian Creole, and this is significant because we also believe we only thrive when we work together.

TOGETHER we are empowering the next generation of Haitians to THRIVE.

You can invest in the lives of Haitian students by donating, supporting a specific student, or starting a fundraising campaign.

Get Started

A Movement of Young People

Thrive Ansanm was formed out of a friendship between a grassroots movement of young Haitians and international volunteers during the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake.

Our 3 Focuses

l

Education

Education is a step toward a brighter future. However, most families struggle to afford to send their kids to school. When a student is supported through Thrive Ansanm, we cover the cost of their tuition and other school costs, so they can stay in school and succeed.

Technology

Digital access creates opportunity and connection. Most Haitian students don’t have a computer or high-speed internet, but at our resource center local students can access laptops, high-speed internet, and consistent electricity, so they won’t get left behind in today’s digital world.

w

Mentoring

Mentoring develops the leaders of tomorrow. We match university students with personal mentors who who provide guidance from their experience. These mentors are qualified professionals from the local community, so they understand the unique challenges confronting Haitian students.

Who We Are

Our Students

Our students are the heart of Thrive Ansanm. They are the future of Haiti.

Financial Transparency

We are committed to financial transparency, and we strive to be as efficient as possible so that every dollar has the greatest possible impact.

School Costs

When you support a student, we commit to keeping that student in school. This means that we cover the student’s tuition and help with other necessities such as books, uniforms, food, and transportation.

Programs

Once the student’s school costs are covered, we invest the majority of the remaining money in our programs. This includes staff/mentor wages, resource center rent, student activities, and other such essential program expenses.

Fundraising / Administration

We reserve a small portion of the money you donate toward a student to help with our fundraising efforts, keep the lights on, and make sure our program is running smoothly.
