In order for Haiti to address its many challenges, its seminary students need to experience an innovative, quality education — an education that empowers them to develop their potential, to think outside the box, and to engage in improving their communities.

WHO WE HELP

Impact Haiti strives to help Haitians change Haiti through quality education for church leaders alongside DAI-Haiti and the Micah Scholars program.

WHAT WE DO

Haiti’s brutal history of colonization, slavery, and exploitation has traumatized its people and created a culture of authoritarian leadership that all too often results in the abuse of power and a scarcity mindset. The abuse of power stifles the positive evolution of institutions: families, organizations, businesses, government. Leaders that abuse power create and perpetuate conditions that inhibit people from growing, innovating, and discovering their potential.

Impact Haiti partners with DAI-Haiti to support Micah Scholars and offer a Masters in Organizational Leadership degree to emerging Haitian leaders. Drawing from Micah 6:8, Micah Scholars is developing a new generation of pastors and leaders who do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God. In partnership with three Haitian seminaries, we’re providing young leaders with full scholarships to seek a Bachelor of Divinity degree.

Through monthly workshops, they acquire leadership skills, and in quarterly retreats with international church leaders, they connect with the global movement of the Church. By working alongside Development Associates International (DAI) we are able to introduce new graduate level program in these seminaries so that Haitians are equipped with all the skills required to transform their own communities.
