Founded in 2001, VHP is a collaborative, all- volunteer 501(c)3 supporting the welfare of artists and artisans in Haiti, and sustainable development in Chermaitre. 

The Vassar Haiti Project functions through the auction and sale of Haitian art and handcrafts.

Our contributions are guided by five initiatives: education, medical access, reforestation, water purification and women's leadership. We invite you to learn more about the Vassar Haiti Project. Welcome to the family!


Thank you!

Thank you for all you did to make the Parent's Weekend Sale at Vassar College a huge success! This sale ensures the running of our primary school for another year, giving over 350 students the opportunity to learn, and helps to fund the lunch program and teacher salaries.
