Chalice has been serving children in Haiti since 1999 in two sites in both urban and rural communities.  We have been able to see the long-term impacts of our decades of work, as well as provide immediate disaster relief in the wake of the 2010 earthquake and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

For families who cannot afford private education for their children, access to quality education is nearly impossible. Public schools are under-resourced, and some parents are mistrustful of the role of education for their children. In the communities where Chalice works, there is a severe lack of adequate housing.  Rates of food insecurity are high and malnutrition is endemic among the children. Parents struggle with high rates of unemployment.
Chalice - education and literacy rates in Haiti
Through the support of sponsors and donors, Chalice and our local partners focus on:
  1. Education – Ensuring each child completes their education until high school graduation, at a minimum. We  assist families to afford schools fees, books, uniforms and other necessary materials, and work to instruct parents on the importance of education.
  2. Nutrition – Our partners ensure children have balanced, nutrient –rich diets by implementing school feeding programs through the support of the Chalice Children Nutrition Program.
  3. Livelihood -  providing opportunities for parents to find work or begin their own income-generating projects

Our sites in Haiti:

Haiti North -  Chalice has partnered with the congregation of Notre Dame de Sacre Coeur of New Brunswick in the communities of Terrier-Rouge and Grand-Bassin since 1999. Under the direction of Edley Gabeau, the site runs the sponsorship of children in two schools. Children in schools benefit from a feeding program supported by the Chalilce Children Nutrition Fund. The site conducts health assessments for the children and monitors their development, as well as providing workshops for the 22 parent groups on the importance of nutrition and their child's brain development. The site runs the successful  community poultry cooperative program and agricultural supply store, and the Onz Manman women’s jam-making cooperative.

Haiti South – Chalice is partnered with the Missionaries of the Anunciation - Sowers of Hope - in the communities around the city of Jérémie. The site is comprised of several primary and secondary schools, as well as a home for orphaned and abandoned boys.  Sponsored children receive one hot meal at the canteen each school day. In schools that do not have a canteen, families receive kits of food to prepare at home. The staff works with four nurses who deliver training to families on disease prevention (typhoid, malaria, HIV/AIDS), hygiene and balanced nutrition. In the wake of the 2010 earthquake and Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Chalice has run a home-building project and undertaken both short and long-term relief and reconstruction projects throughout the area.
