working together to build a more sustainable haiti

Our Mission

Ven Pou Ven is a campaign initiated by the Ayiti Community Trust (A.C.T.) inviting Haitians in Ayiti (Haiti), the diaspora, and all friends of Ayiti to join a community of investors dedicated to building Ayiti’s assets. Our goal is to raise $20 million to establish the first endowed community foundation that is led by Haitians across the globe and driven by the needs of Haitians in Ayiti.


The Ayiti Community Trust is created to serve as an impetus for organizations positively influencing the sectors of Environment, Entrepreneurship, and Civic Education. We purpose to transform the mentality surrounding development in Ayiti by investing in its most valuable resource, its people.



Our grant making efforts will award funding to projects or programs that demonstrate 

meaningful and measurable impact at the intersection of three areas:


Initiatives that demonstrate effective management of Ayiti’s natural resources that create strengthened conditions for climate resiliency, improve livelihood opportunities, and raise long-term economic prospect.


Opportunities that Increase access to tools and knowledge for entrepreneurship that enhance livelihoods and contributes to sustainable economic growth in local communities.

Civic Education

Widespread Programs that promote civic education among Haitians, grounded in historical and culture values, and positively advance civic duty and pride in rural or urban communities.

  1. Make a $20 contribution today
  2. Pledge to contribute $20 over the next 12 months
  3. Invite 20 others to join the movement


We need 85,000 people to contribute by December 2020. 85,000 is only .02% of the U.S. population, .04% of Nigeria’s population, and .06% of Japan’s population. With you on board, our goal is more than feasible.

Raised so far!

Together, let’s build our way to $20 million.
