H.O.P.E. works solely in the community of Borgne, Haiti – an agricultural and fishing community situated on Haiti's northern peninsula. We work to provide health and dental care, education services and help drive economic development within a vibrant but impoverished community.
Rose-Marie Chierici, Ph. D.
Founder, Executive Director
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of H.O.P.E., it is with deep sadness and shared sympathies for all who knew her and supported her work, that we mourn the loss of our founder, leader, and dear friend, Rose-Marie Chierici.
In Times Like These, We Cling To Hope
There is uncertainty and fear in northern Haiti, and not even local police officers in Borgne are certain how to maintain order. The team of qualified professionals who work at Alyans Sante Borgne Hospital continue to provide medical care, training, and education as well as tackle – virtually without assistance – Covid-19 variants that are spreading throughout Haiti.
Their work continues. So, our work must continue.
Thank you for your steadfast support of Haiti Outreach Pwoje Espwa (H.O.P.E) As hard as it may be, this is not the time to feel discouraged; it is instead a time to remain strongly committed,
as Dr. Thony says, "to a brighter tomorrow."
What We Do
H.O.P.E.'s Family Health and Medicine program delivers affordable health and dental care to Borgne's geographically dispersed population of 80.000 men, women and children.
Lekol Alfa, H.O.P.E.'s Creole adult literacy program offers training in reading and writing, basic math, and social literacy. The Borgne Community Libraries also offer important gathering place for residents.
Good oral health contributes to overall health. Dental problems such as cavities or gum disease causes pain, impairs your ability to eat and speak properly, plus other ailments within the body. H.O.P.E.'s dental program provides residents dental services that serve the communities overall health.
Made possible by the support of WomenStrong International, our women's focused economic development program is just one of the many tools used to increase women's agency and connects them to the resources they need to become entrepreneurs.
