THE NATION OF HAITI IS THE FIRST BLACK REPUBLIC IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE. IT WAS FOUNDED BY A SUCCESSFUL SLAVE REBELLION.
Haiti has also been labeled as the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Though these words are true, they do not define the nation of Haiti. In the midst of Haiti’s pain there is beauty; the beauty of her people, her land, and her culture. While her beauty has been masked by the pain of her past and the recent tragedies of Hurricane Mathew and the 2010 earthquake. God is rescuing, restoring, and transforming Haiti in the midst of her pain and suffering.
Ayiti Underground was founded on hearing the voice of Jesus calling us to join Him and His mission in Haiti long-term after the 2010 earthquake. We know that God’s heart is for the poor and the lost in Haiti, and we are compelled to respond.
Ayiti Underground exists to empower, mobilize and resource the Haitian community to discover their passion, confront injustice and to attack it at its roots through Jesus Christ for the sake of His Kingdom in Haiti and beyond.
We are called and invite others into the journey of uprooting evil, building character, and continuing to plant hope in Jesus in the Haitian community.
Our approach is through community, education, empowerment, and church planting.
