7 Jiyè – Jounen Rekonsilyasyon Nasyonal

Posted Posted by Color of Hope in Events, Uncategorized     Comments No comments

Mezanmi, jodi a kè m kontan anpil, nou finalman g on dat pou Jounen Rekonsilyasyon Nasyonal la. Dat la se setyèm jou nan mwa jiyè. Kòmanse depi ane sa a, sèt jiyè se yon jou pou padon ak rekonsilyasyon an Ayiti. E se yon jou pou tout pitit peyi a ki deyò, rantre lakay.

M ap pwofite di yon gwo mèsi a tout moun ki gentan siyen demand pou ofisyalize jounen rekonsilyasyon an. Franchman, se moun tankou w yo k ap ede transfòme Ayiti tout bon vre. Moun ki reyalize ravaj rankin ak divizyon ap fè nan peyi a e deside nou pap kite divizyon kòm eritaj pou lòt jenerasyon an. Mèsi anpil pou konpreyansyon w ak volonte w pou w eseye yonlòt apwòch, yon apwòch k ap pèmèt nou itilize fòs gerizon ki nan padon an, pou n geri peyi nou.

Randevou a kase pou 7 jiyè, M swete w ap vin ede m sonnen lanbi rekonsilyasyon an.  Paske an verite, rekonsilyasyon pa yon chwa, men yon nesesite ak yon obligasyon. Li se yon nesesite pou pwogwè. Li nesesè pou bon fonksyonman fanmi nou yo, li nesesè pou pwosperite endividyèl e kolektif.

Nan yon sans, li se yon enperatif pou yon Ayiti miyò e yon obligasyon pou tout Ayisyen ki renmen peyi yo tout bon vre. An n simaye lapè pou flè lanmou ka boujonnen nan mitan nou

Non pa m se Marli, M se yon Anbasadè lespwa pou Ayiti, e se Rekonsilyasyon M ap mande.


Peze sou lyen sa a pou w siyen demand lan https://colorofhope.org/jounen-rekonsilyasyon-nasyonal/

Run, Walk or Ride for Haiti

Posted Posted by Color of Hope in #IstandwithHaiti, Events, fundraiser, News, Save Haiti Bike Ride, Uncategorized     Comments No comments

The Save Haiti Bike Ride event is getting bigger and better. This year, the event will start with a run – 12 Laps for Haiti. The run starts at 7AM on Saturday January 14th, at Jaco Pastorious Park in Oakland Park. The run is symbolic in remembrance of the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

Run and walk for Haiti

Each runner can choose what he/she is running for. Here are some of the things you can run for:

Better Public Schools, Political Stability, Better Infrastructure, Civic Engagement, Revival of Agriculture, Restavek, Sanitation, Haiti’s Sovereignty, Women’s Rights, STEM Education, Literacy, Gender Equality, Workers’ Rights, Better Healthcare, Girls Empowerment, Clean Water, Mentorship, Electricity, Access to Information and more.

Health and Fitness Instructor/Race Director, Widlin Dieu-juste will warm up participants with a zumba session with music by DJ Francois. The top three runners (people who finish the race) will receive prizes.

You can also do a “12/10 for Haiti” – That is; run 12 laps and bike 10 miles. There are also the “12/20 for Haiti” and “12/30 for Haiti’ to test your fitness level. Will you run, bike or do both? You tell us.

The run is a collaboration with J.U.S.T.E INC AKA Juste Do It 5k Run/Walk

After the run, our bikers will take the road to raise awareness throughout the streets, with stops in Boca at Mizner, in Delray at Veteran Park, then we will join the public at Bryant Park in Lake Worth for the Finish Line Celebration with live performances by Zeal Dubreus, Darly Dieujuste and others. DJ Tony will keep the crowd on its feet.

Back to School Drive in Haiti

Posted Posted by Color of Hope in Education, Events, News, Program, Trip, Uncategorized     Comments No comments


Throughout the year Color of Hope supports schools, students, teachers and parents with different initiatives, however the back to school drive is one that has proven to be crucial for a successful academic year. 

Many parents struggled to come up with tuition fees and uniforms which means there is no money for school supplies. While some schools will not allow children to attend without adequate school supplies, many children will attend school without the basics (backpack, notebooks, pens, pencils etc…) One of the students we helped was threatened to be sent back home because he did not have socks. 


This year with the support of Waste Management, One Love-One Community and LESS Institute, we were able to help more children to start the school year properly equipped.


Knowing the importance of education in building a better Haiti, we couldn’t be more grateful to all those who make what we do possible. Special thanks to: Mayor Triolo of the City of Lake Worth, Ellen Smith, Barbara Haider, Former State Rep. Mack Bernard, Lisa Turdo, Commissioner McVoy, Renel Coutelien, Alex Augustin and Mary Greydanus.
The back to School Drive was filled with activities, including a movie viewing. “Providing those materials to students in Haiti is priceless” said Hope Ambassador Marli Lalanne. Click HERE to view more pictures from the event on our facebook page.

Hope Team USA is back from Haiti

Posted Posted by Color of Hope in Events, News, Program, Technology, Trip     Comments No comments
Hope Team USA is back from Haiti. We did everything we set out to do AND had a little time to go to the beach.
During our trip, we hosted the seminar for teachers and schools at our Technology Center PLUS another week long seminar for teachers in La Gonave as well.
We did activities for youth including movie night. We also got the ball rolling on our biggest initiative yet “Ayiti Li” (an initiative to promote reading in Haiti’s schools, groups, organizations and in homes.) We did many other wonderful things with groups and communities we partner with –
We took just a little time to relax at the beach but it was back to work the next day to empower our people
Movie Night – With no movie theater in Haiti and very limited power we made a way.
We took the time to invest in teachers so they can help prepare the next generation of leaders that Haiti needs
The kids just love the Ipad in La Gonave.
