June 18th - 24th
Our Story as a Nonprofit began with this very realization. In 2010 Priscilla Zelaya and Bertrhude Albert began brainstorming ways that they could partner with the Haitian people. They had traveled to Haiti, separately on several occasions but realized that they shared the same unwavering passion for the Haitian people. Their hearts had been set aflame for this Nation but little action had been taken on their parts. The time would soon come that their emotions would be matured and they would be ready to step into the realms of sustainable development and partnership with Haitians. The key to their partnership would be recognizing the dignity and richness of the economically poorest country in the western hemisphere. March 2011 Priscilla and Bertrhude took a group of 19 UF students to the country they loved. They saw Haiti not as an object of sympathy but rather as a hopeful country with great potential. During their first trip together they became even more inspired by the fortitude and strength of the Haitian people. Priscilla and Bertrhude returned to the US with a renewed vision for Haiti and thus Projects for Haiti (P4H) was birthed. By July 6, 2011 P4H was incorporated as a Nonprofit Business in the state of Florida. By December 5, 2011 P4H was a 501(c)3 Nonprofit as outlined by the IRS. 3 years later and the P4H story is one that is still being written. It is our joy to partner with perhaps the most inspirational peoples in the world. We invite you to join us on this journey!
