New Bridges for Haitian Success

The New Bridges for Haitian Success, Inc. is a Rhode Island-based 501(c)3 organization that provides direct services such as Adult English language education and health promotion.
We also create opportunities for Haitians to better integrate into American society.

Back in the homeland, Haiti, the New Bridges for Haitian Success works to improve the living conditions in the southeastern part of Haiti through education and medical intervention. Our primary focus is mainly in the town of Belle-Anse, a place with over 158,000 residents with barely any functional health system or access to centralized education. This means that residents there are vulnerable to catastrophes such the horrendous earthquake of 2010 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016. Many people still live in tents with little access to clean food or drinking water.

Your donations and advocacy are crucial to continuing these efforts in Belle-Anse and Haiti.

New Bridges for Haitian prides itself on a strong record of accountability and transparency from our donations.

Collaborating to create opportunities:

Our partnership with Practico Innovation, a cutting edge technology accelerator, has generated a number of innovative business ideas in the past two years. This year, three of our Haitian business participants were selected and received funding from Practico Innovatio, awarding local Haitian students and entrepeneurs with $30,000 scholarships to attend Providence’s CareerDevs Computer Science University tuition-free. They are all employed, earning an average of $80,000 a year.

Building Meaningful Community:

Part of our advocacy is our national appreciation and celebration of Independence Day on May 18th each year. As the Haitian community grows in Rhode Island our organization sees an opportunity to educate the Providence community and celebrate Haitian contributions to U.S history and culture. NB4HS meets at the statehouse brings together members of the larger community to celebrate Haitian history and local community members in the Governor’s room at the Rhode Island State House.

Bridging the Past to the Future in the Present:

We believe it is important and significant to recognize the courageous efforts of revolutionaries like Toussaint L’Overture and Jean Jacque Dessalines, who turned the country of Haiti into the first, and only, free nation in history to be liberated of slavery. At this event, NB4HS was joined by  community leaders, partners, Haitian based from Boston, Haitians based from Connecticut, including our local elected officials such as Governor Gina Raimondo, Lieutenant Governor Daniel J McKee, Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza, Attorney General Peter F. Neronha, and others.
