Artists for Peace and Justice is proud to follow a 100% policy: every single penny donated by the public goes directly to our programs in Haiti and around the world.
On January 12, 2010 an earthquake devastated Haiti. Hundreds of thousands were killed and much of the capital was leveled. The destruction was unimaginable, but urgency of that moment required action. We pledged our support to do more than just humanitarian relief. We pledged to build lasting Institutions.
Today, the Academy for Peace and Justice and the Artists Institute are thriving campuses where a new generation of Haitian youth are empowered through quality secondary and higher education. These young people are Haiti’s future and we are inspired by their success every single day. The work has also galvanized us to expand our vision, leading us to other countries where we provide young women with access to life-changing secondary education, enabling them to break the chains of endemic poverty.
It is an honor to work with our partners in Haiti and abroad. We are grateful for the power of their example and their commitment to advancing the cause of peace and justice.
