Help us replace this

2014 was a record breaking year with 55 community managed wells created in one year by Haiti Outreach and the volunteer water management committees in rural communities in Haiti!  And our Haiti Outreach team in Pignon set an even higher goal for 2015  of 70 community managed wells!

These are ALL community managed wells in rural Haiti that include:

  • Local volunteers elected and formed into a community water management committee
  • Trainings to create a system that will sustain the well for as many as 20 years
  • Well drilled and completed by out Haiti Outreach team
  • Sanitation and hygiene education
  • 2 years of monthly inspections

Consider Adopting-a-Well in Haiti!

Haiti Outreach has a unique program that should interest many individuals, churches, and schools, along with Rotary Clubs and other civic groups and foundations: The Adopt-a-Well Program!

In this program, an individual or group sponsor would raise the $15,000 needed for a specific community managed well in rural Haiti. Each community has a name, population, and its own story about where and how far people have to go to get contaminated water that they bring home daily for their families to use, just to survive. You could select the community and raise the money;  we would provide the community training to maintain the well and drill it.  And you could even visit it or attend the well inauguration!

 Haiti Outreach – Developing Community Clean Water Systems


The community of Door Ten in the commune of St. Raphael held the inauguration for their well on July 30. The community has 152 people in 32 homes, 20 of which have latrines so far. These women are expressing happiness about their new clean water well.






“In just one day, 200 million work hours are logged by women and girls collecting water. The lost productivity is greater than the combined number of hours in a week by employees at Walmart, UPS, McDonald’s, IBM, Target and Kroger.”

Most of us take clean water for granted. It’s hard to imagine our lives without it. But five million Haitians—half the population—face this situation every day!

Haiti Outreach is committed to the vision of Haiti as developed country and devoted to helping rural Haitians have sustainable, community-managed water and sanitation facilities in their communities.

Haiti Outreach is not an ordinary charitable organization. What sets us apart is that we recognize that, for any development work to be sustainable, the solution must come from the people. Community participation and responsibility are integral and required throughout the entire life of any project. Haiti Outreach is dedicated to helping Haiti become a developed nation—building and maintaining community-initiated projects that advance their development.
