Why Ayiti - Who AM I???

First of I am NOT HAITIAN, but my love for Haiti knows no bounds. My name is Allison Harvey, Trini born and raised and currently residing in Toronto, Canada.  This amazing and fascinating country has devoured me heart and soul, I live to see the grandeur that Haiti will one day be restored to and become visible as the vibrant jewel it once was. 

This is my vision to create awareness for a country that has been devastated time and time again by natural and unnatural causes, for a people that live in H.O.P.E. day after day, that although they should have given up long ago continue to H.O.P.E. Haiti is a nation born of strength in the face of adversity.  Gained Independence when there was none, tenacity to hold on to their language, their culture, their religion as many seek to bury it, knowing with certainty that one day Ayiti will RISE.. like the Phoenix from the ashes. 

As we travel to Ayiti year after year, learning about the culture, the people and the ways to help the Ayitian people to help themselves through self sustaining actions.  Our ultimate Vision is to create a transitional home for young ladies that are turned out of the orphanages that are so widely talked about, when they reach 18 years old, to now fend for themselves with little or no experience..to do so – failing prey to negative forces and the cycle of abandoned children repeats itself.

H.O.P.E. House Ayiti will be a place of Rebirth, Building and having Access to facilities that will assist them in having a bright and sustainable future…

A Village within a Community.
