BlueModus has donated $500 to the Colorado Haiti Project this month, as part of its ongoing program to give back to the community. The Colorado Haiti Project (CHP) has been working with local leaders in rural Haiti for more than 28 years, supporting community-driven programs in education, health, clean water, girls’ and women’s empowerment, and agriculture.
Some of CHP’s initiatives include supporting a locally managed seed bank, a tree-planting program, and the installation of water wells and catchment systems in small mountain communities. They work to reinforce local health structures, providing access to training, specialized equipment and materials, and financial support. In the past year, the organization funded the work of 45 health workers, trained to serve as first responders and health educators in hard-to-access communities.
Additionally, CHP helped found St. Paul's School in 1989 in the Haitian town of Petit Trou de Nippes, which has provided education to over 5,000 children since its inception. It proudly operates a student gardens and agriculture program, a girls' and women's empowerment program, courses on entrepreneurship, and an early childhood education center.
“My family has helped sponsor students from Haiti to come to the United States and attend University tuition-free, on the basis that they then return to Haiti to give two years of service using their new knowledge,” says BlueModus Senior UX/UI Developer Grant Rowley, who selected this month’s charity. “I think the Colorado Haiti Project is a wonderful organization that works hard to improve the lives of the Haitian people.”
