Haiti Water Partners welcomes all who have the passion to help the people of Haiti. No matter your background or expertise, your time with us helping create positive change is what we cherish as an organization. The wonderful people of Haiti deserve just as wonderful a place to live, but due to population density, lack of proper education on sanitation, and poor maintenance of sewage and water transportation by the government, many water-borne diseases have spread over Haiti. One project at a time though, with help from people like you, we can solve these problems through passion, science and engineering.
