CHES is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization founded in June 2008 that operates in MA and Haiti. The organization is mainly comprised of dedicated volunteers, which include American, Haitian and Haitian-American professionals who have diverse knowledge and skillsets. CHES supports long-term economic stability in rural Haiti through its mission to educate, to mentor, and to fund entrepreneurs.

Our vision is to see Haitians in Haiti living with dignity and free of poverty through economic development and education. Since inception, we have leveraged our network of deep relationships in Haiti, our resourcefulness, and our ingenuity to stretch few dollars of revenue into maximum impact. We are proud to report that we funded a women-owned business - a food depot that sold 100% natural Haitian-grown produce - through our seed loan program. 

Nearly 50 small business-owners in rural Haiti have undergone our business education program. Of certificate earners, 88% report applying what they learn at our trainings and have ALL increased profitability. We utilize kreyòl, the prevalent language spoken in Haiti, in all workshops and documents. We work with local partners and staff on the ground to ensure success of our programming.
