Engaging with Haitian Civil Society Organisations...

...and committing to real change in Haiti

Below we list a number of organisations based in Haiti, the UK and elsewhere. We are not formally linked to any of these organisations, and do not necessarily share their views, although we often collaborate together. We do, however, believe that the links will certainly be of interest to Haiti Watchers wishing to learn more about Haiti and to support the country in different ways.
