About Us

According to the Center for Global Development "in developing, low-income countries, every additional year of education can increase a person’s future income by an average of 10%".  UNESCO points out that 71% of Haitians live in poverty and the literacy rate is 8.53%.  Open Hands 4 the Fatherless seeks to change this trend by helping to provide an education.  We are watching as these children and young adults transform through the ability to receive an education that was previously outside of their means.  Now growing up to be a doctor, lawyer, or anything else is within grasp.  With this comes a new life for families that have been stuck in generational poverty for which they thought there was no hope of a better future.  We believe that everyone has a God-given right to education, so we stand on the front line with many others to make that happen in Haiti.
