President’s Message

Dear Friends of ACT,

On behalf of our team at Ayiti Community Trust (ACT), we would like to thank all of those who contributed to the success of our first Haitian Heritage Month fundraising campaign. The month of May is not only a time for us to promote and uplift our Haitian Heritage, but also a moment to commemorate the contributions of Ayiti to the world, while reflecting on the principles that allowed Haitians to successfully champion and achieve freedom.

Together we raised over $10,000, exceeding our campaign goal! This milestone is a true example of how we can make a lasting impact, together. We would like to extend a special thank you to the following Friends for collaborating on this month’s fundraising efforts. We appreciate their support on our journey to build a sustainable Ayiti.

  • Nathalie Trancrede, Rony Jacques, and Vanessa Trancrede of the Artisanetwork for contributing to ACT’s mission.

  • Sandy Dorsainvil and the Little Haiti Cultural Complex for co-sponsoring the private screening of Nou se Fos by Chalky the King and Ayiti: The Awakening by Sage Love

  • Mellisa Shabani and Rice Mediterranean Kitchen for hosting a 3-day long fundraiser on behalf of ACT

  • Everyone who supported and contributed to ACT’s mission


Dr. Guerda Nicolas

Our Grantees Are Making an Impact!

Lakou Kajou is an educational medium for children and their families in Creole. Through the adventures of the characters, children have the opportunity to learn educational content such as literacy, math, science, the arts, etc.

Ayiti Community Trust partnered with the University of Quisqueya to support the series’ "Keep the Lakou Green" campaign. The objective of the campaign is to educate the young citizens of Ayiti on climate change and deforestation by using positive storytelling to help children learn practical actions they can take within their own families to protect the environment.
