What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

Our main challenge is raising the funding required to run the programs we have in place. We have met well-trained people who are capable of doing the work in Haiti, but we need funding, improve organizational capacity, and guidance to plan and grow the organization to reach more people.

Actions I’ve taken so far

Become a partner with the crowdfunding site GlobalGiving to help raise money for our education program Recruited volunteers to help improve social media pages. Recruited some experts in Haiti to help with projects

My future goals

To elevate the organization to a place where it can have significant widespread impact. 1) Build a STEM school 2) Implement a school feeding program 3) Small-scale farming program

My motivations to work with a mentor

The motivation for working with a mentor is to get the organization in a place where it can help more people by crafting and implementing a strategy with the help of a mentor.


About my venture

Home Roots Foundation Started 2018

I co-founded a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that is now active in Haiti for the last three years. We main focus is education and we support two existing schools by helping with supplies, scholarships and teacher salaries. However, by popular demand, we started a women's microfinance program in 2020 and we are working with other organizations to help famers in some rural areas also. Our budget is only $25,000 and we currently have only volunteers. We believe in helping people help themselves not through charity but through sustainable programs and entrepreneurialism. There are a lot of people counting on me for help. My background is in the biomedical sciences, so I seek guidance from those with expertise to better help our organization increase the positive impact we have had to date .

Countries of operation: Haiti, United States of America
