The Three Hands Foundation(THF) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2011 by Rev. Fr. Lucien Eugene Pierre in Miami, Florida. We, members, in the Three Hands Foundation, are moved with love and compassion toward vulnerable families and young people who are suffering in Haiti. We are convinced that Haiti and its people deserve better. Haiti can be better in helping its sons and daughter to have a dissent life and a better future. This is what motivates us in Three Hands Foundation to actively participate in the reconstruction of Haiti mainly through education and human services. THF supports and works in conjunction with Fondation de l'esperance d'Haiti. We will undertake many projects that will benefit vulnerable children, youth, needy families, and communities in Haiti.
Education is the first tool we could use to help a country and its people to progress. In the effort to participate actively and empower young Haitians, THF and Foundation de L'Esperance are convinced that a technical school will be beneficial to the country's development. We already have the land to build the school and other projects in Cap-Haitian. Your contribution will go to the project design, construction, labor, materials/equipment, and others.
This Technical Institute will progressively lead to a University with an initial capacity of 1200 students including residents non-resident students. They will be able to finish their secondary education and receive a professional and technical training . This institution will be well equipped and will meet the international standards. It will include several facilities such as, logistic administrative and professor offices, classrooms, laboratories, workshops, auditorium, gymnasium, library, cafeteria, several sports facilities and recreations, computer rooms, student lounge room, recreation room and dorms.
Building this technical school will have a big impact on the lives of Haitian children, young people, and the disadvantage families. These two foundations have already been engaging and supporting other primary schools, giving scholarships and distributing school materials through numerous institutions in and outside of the capital. However, education is our main focus and goal since we believe through education we will be able to give our young Haitian brothers and sisters a better and a sustainable future.
People sometime are reluctant to donate because of lack of transparency and corruption. However, there is always hope. The worse thing to do is let the force of corruption steals and fades our generosity and give up on our less fortunate brothers and sisters in needs. This is not the solution. Accountability is the beginning of transparency. Three Hands Foundation (THF) and Fondation de l'esperance (FEH) vow to be transparent with its spending of every single of your dollar you will donate.
Giving a fish cannot really make an impact on individuals' lives, but teach them how to catch the fish will CHANGE THEIR LIVES and others and move the country forward. This project will be valuable because it will make an impact on every single young people who come to us, on the country, and society at large.
Please do not hesitate to give what you have as the saying goes in Haitian Creole "bay piti pa vle di chich" translated " "give small does not mean miser." Once again, please donate whatever your heart compels you to give in knowing that you are making an impact in someone's life. If you feel you cannot give now, I invite you to spread the word out and help us reaching out your family, friends, colleagues, and churches, social media (indiegogo) and others.
Please my fellow human beings, brothers and sisters help us make this technical school a reality. What a smile you could have in your face because of you someone is going to school, someone's life changes, and someone has a brighter future.
Thank you very much may God bless you all, and together we can and will make difference.
