Who we are

Haven is an Irish non-governmental organisation (NGO) which is strongly committed to empowering the people of Haiti to build strong and sustainable livelihoods.

Launched in 2009, we work solely in Haiti, facilitating the provision of sustainable water and sanitation, training and education, and shelter solutions for its people.

Our vision is to build thriving communities which prosper independently, and in which every person has a safe place to call home.

Our Skills - We focus our time and resources to help build sustainable communities

Water and Sanitation (WASH)
Training and Education
Community Development

To date, Haven has facilitated the training of over 78,000 Haitian people, empowering them to build strong, secure and sustainable livelihoods, and to live free from poverty.  We have trained over 69,000 people in Hygiene Promotion, and built or upgraded homes and shelters for close to 20,000 people.  We have directly employed more than 1,200 Haitian people, and brought over 1,400 volunteers to Haiti to assist with the building of houses through our volunteer programmes.
