The Haitian Diaspora remits $2 billion a year in Haiti. Most of it goes toward supporting critical and immediate consumption needs. Join us and work with the Diaspora to develop and implement ideas that will also spur economic development in Haiti.

The Diaspora Challenge Initiative aims at leveraging ideas about successful development concepts amongst members of the Diaspora looking for opportunities to contribute to Haiti’s development. Funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the initiative is part of the broader Leveraging Effective Application of Direct Investments program (LEAD) program implemented by the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF). NAAHP and partner organizations EDEM Foundation, GRAHN-USA, and the Society for Haitian Research (SHR) are proud to be leading this campaign where the top 10 winning ideas will be selected and showcased at a grand event to be held in January 2017.
