About the Vassar Haiti Project

Founded in 2001, the Vassar Haiti Project (VHP) is a collaborative, all-volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that engages students in life-changing experiential education about global citizenship by promoting Haitian art and fostering sustainable development in Haiti. We organize art auctions and sales throughout the year, which support the welfare of hundreds of Haitian artists and artisans and provide means for funding the six initiatives: Art, Education, Healthcare, Water Access and Purification, Reforestation, and Women’s Co-Operative in the mountain village of Chermaitre, Haiti. 

Proceeds from this auction will go towards our Education Initiative, which seeks to provide basic education to the children in Chermaitre, Haiti, as well as to educate the wider global community on Haitian culture and history. Click HERE to learn more about the Education initiative.
