Communities Organizing for Haitian Engagement and Development
COFHED's mission is to partner with marginalized communities in the mountains of southern Haiti to discover, create and realize their own vision of socioeconomic development for lasting transformation.
COFHED is a Haitian-led organization that fosters local education, leadership and mobilization so that rural citizens in southern Haiti can sustainably transform their communities. Valuing every member and their capacity to act, we build on the community's existing strengths, resources and skills.
As community members identify, plan and implement ALL activities that improve their lives, COFHED provides the technical and financial support as well as connections to make their vision concrete.
That's where you come in! Your generosity makes it possible for COFHED to partner with marginalized villages and engage them in collectively discovering, creating and realizing new possibilities for their communities. We can't do this without YOU!
When you give to COFHED, you make dignity, hope and lasting transformation a reality in southern Haiti and beyond. Thank you!
