Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Through Hope for Haiti's partnerships, the organization aims to create Sustainable Communities that catalyze generational and transformative change in the Greater South of Haiti. Hope for Haiti has a rich legacy of impact beginning with JoAnne Kuehner's first visit to Haiti in 1989. JoAnne launched Hope for Haiti on the program foundations of Education and Healthcare, with a specific focus on children. As Hope for Haiti's programmatic vision grows to include a larger emphasis on Infrastructure and Economy, we remain dedicated to stewarding our founding legacy. This will be accomplished through an unending focus on benefiting the lives of Haitian children, while continually allocating program resources to develop communities that are sustainable in the long-term.

Hope for Haiti is working in long-term partnerships with local communities to initiate sustainable development. With the school at the center of the community, Hope for Haiti designs, implements, monitors, and evaluates initiatives in response to identified needs. Hope for Haiti is now positioning itself with a vision to create lasting sustainability within the communities it serves, centered on a 5 Core Area model. The model Connects through Education, Heals through Healthcare and Water, and Empowers through Infrastructure and Economy.

To increase the sustainability of our school-based program, Hope for Haiti has partnered with Yunus Social Business Haiti S.A. This partnership has already provided micro-credit to local residents, facilitated community dialogue, and trained local leaders on finance and administration. Over the long-term, we aim to promote and develop social business in Southern Haiti – a replicable model to solve problems created by poverty and increase a community's capacity to generate income which can then be invested in the education and health of the community.

Hope for Haiti has been operating solely in Haiti for 27 years. With a board of directors committed to good governance and fiscal responsibility, the organization maintains a low overhead (less than 5%) and ensures that over 95 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to our programs on the ground. In addition, our organization has built up a strong dedicated team of over forty professionals working in Haiti and eight in the United States to create transformational change for the next generation.

Some of the short-term indicators of progress are more visible than others. When a malnourished child is nursed back to health over an intensive 6-month period, this is tangible progress that is inspiring. Lives that are saved or the quality of lives improved each and every day through our healthcare programs are easier to see and measure. Measuring a higher passing rate of students in our education program on the sixth grade exam compared to the national average is an indicator of progress. Providing access to clean water or electricity in communities where it currently doesn't exist provides immediate life-changing results. Hope for Haiti has multiple examples of these measurable and very tangible outputs of progress throughout all of our program areas. Our indicators outputs and outcomes are tracked by Hope for Haiti's staff and they are incredibly important.

More challenging, but equally as important, is measuring long-term progress and transformative change for a family and/or community. In 2011, Hope for Haiti began implementing the Progress out of Poverty Index™ (PPI) survey in two rural communities. This tool allowed us to establish a baseline of the poverty level. In community 1, the poverty level was quantified at 69% of households living below $1 USD per day. In community 2, the poverty level was estimated at 65%. The national average in Haiti is estimated at 56%. Using measurement tools such as the PPI helps Hope for Haiti determine its impact on the communities it serves over time. Hope for Haiti also encourages communities to perform self-evaluations of success and impact. Many of these qualitative tools are a more effective measurement of program success.

Hope for Haiti hasn't yet been fully successful in empowering school communities with economic opportunities to be able to pay their school fees at 100%. This is the ultimate goal of the organization: to empower our school communities through job opportunities and ultimately allow Hope for Haiti to decrease educational subsidies to schools, so that we can focus on impacting even more people!.

By committing to long-term, sustainable development in partnership with these communities, Hope for Haiti is committed to achieving results towards our vision of eliminating extreme poverty.

Hope for Haiti continues to be limited by resources and donor commitments. Hope for Haiti can only focus on long-term measurements of progress when multi-year funding can accompany the sustainable development program. Hope for Haiti encourages donors at all levels to make long-term commitments (5 year increments) to programs so that short and long-term indicators can be tracked and strategic development planning can take place to make each philanthropic investment the most impactful. This type of commitment by the donor, Hope for Haiti, and the program beneficiaries, has proven successful in providing lasting solutions.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
