Become a Thrive Monthly Donor

Join a community of monthly donors dedicated to empowering young people in Haiti to thrive.

Together, we can empower young people in Haiti to THRIVE.

The journey out of poverty is a process that requires commitment and determination, but with help it is possible. When you become a Thrive monthly donor, you join a community of people committed to making a long term impact in the lives of young Haitians. Your support provides education, technology, and mentoring on an ongoing basis. This is a holistic approach that truly positions young people to thrive as students, leaders, and human beings.

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.

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.

Meet the Students

Charlotte

Charlotte lives with her parents in a rural area near the town of Jeremie. Highly intelligent, at a young age she stands out for her kindness and communication skills.

Her teachers say she is a natural leader, yet she's in danger of dropping out of school because her parents can't afford to...

Dorval

Dorval lives in a small house with his mother who is a teacher, but she doesn't make enough money to support his studies.

Jameson has not led an easy life. His mother died during his birth, and he now lives with his godparents in a small two-room house in Jérémie. In spite of the many obstacles he has faced, he remains positive, and he is actively pursuing his goals. He is most interested in focusing on the construction aspect of civil engineering because he has observed that many houses and buildings in Haiti are not well-built, so he sees the need for good engineers. After graduating, he would like to...

Abigaïl

Abigaïl is a very smart little girl who lives with her mother and sister and likes playing with other children in the community.
