Every year, we organise and run Haiti Week, the declaration of our commitment to the people of Haiti to join them in shaping the better, secure future to which they, like us all, are entitled.
Launched in 2011 by former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, this is a week-long initiative, designed to bring the business and arts communities in Ireland together to raise awareness and support for Haiti. Year after year, we are moved by the spirit and dedication with which people unite in solidarity during this time.
A range of events take place during Haiti Week, highlighting the ongoing issues in Haiti and celebrating those who are working to overcome them.
Each year, a highlight of the week comes with the Haiti Ball, a unifying, celebratory event which represents an important opportunity for us all to stand together in solidarity with the people of Haiti. Our next Haiti Ball takes place on Saturday, 20 January 2018 in Dublin.
The presentation of the William Jefferson Clinton Goodwill for Haiti Award marks a standout moment of the Haiti Ball every year, recognising those who have dedicated their lives to the people of Haiti. There are countless unsung heroes who, with unwavering generosity and determination, work tirelessly towards a better future for Haiti: this award is an important opportunity to commend their work and vision.
The Haiti Ball makes a lasting contribution to the people of Haiti every year, and we’re extremely grateful to all who support it.
