experience while feeling the dignity of purchasing their children gifts and

Haiti Made was born out of a deep desire to see the Haitian people
empowered by sustainable and dignified employment as a part of a larger effort to promote economic growth and to fight to keep families together.
 
More than half of Haiti’s people are living in poverty, and the orphan and child slavery crisis in their nation is largely fueled by lack of employment. With these factors spiraling Haiti into further economic turmoil, job creation has been proven to succeed where perpetual aid measures have failed.

We are committed not only to providing jobs at fair wages but to giving back 50% of the profit to the country where the product was produced. With that money, we provide and support worthy causes such as education, micro-loans, medical care, feeding programs, and churches.The sales of Transform Coffee supports the efforts of Global & Community Care. You can be part of transforming lives by sharing our
