Welcome to our site
The true meaning of the Haitian creed “L’union fait La force”( unity is power) has not been lived out and frankly our challenge is providing a much needed boost and support to Haiti entrepreneurship, academic, and social management system. As our Haiti programs remain on life support we can’t afford to have anyone, yes not even you, on the sidelines.
Lifting Haitian people to a more sustainable and prosperous future. The Build Haiti Foundation seeks to partner with the Haitian community in Haiti, friends of Haiti and the Haitian Diaspora in providing project management services, leadership development and fund raising support for infrastructural projects and community building efforts in Haiti and abroad.
Keeping Balance on “A Road Less Traveled”: From Not-for-Profit to Social Enterprise
The Build Haiti Foundation maintains a sense of balance on A Road Less Traveled: From a Not-for-Profit based on a traditional model of giving to Social Entrepreneurship and Education, in the last years Build Haiti Foundation started working on the transition from a giving nonprofit to social entrepreneurship and economic education.
Jean-Robert Anantua, founder and CEO of Build Haiti Foundation has assumed many roles in his career, that of international businessman, social entrepreneur. His mission has always been to stop the self-perpetuating cycle of poverty and inequitable access to education in some of the most neglected places in Haiti.
Jean-Robert has never been afraid to try something new, go against a current and make a splash. Seven years ago he founded Build Haiti Foundation and has worked hard to partner up with existing community organizations to help them extend their current capacities to provide much needed resources for children.
"I learned that in the long run it is the best model to go by. Everyone needs to learn the practicality of being self sufficient and it is our aim at BHF to develop more programs aimed to teach the Haitians how to put their knowledge in to practice and become independent."
Every project is hand picked, nurtured and monitored with love and passion. Jean-Robert and his executive staff personally travel to each location and develops plans drawing in and listening to the needs of the local community.
