A Directory of Civil Society Organizations in Haiti's Education Sector
AIR has recently updated the directory to include each organization’s post-earthquake education reconstruction activities and new contact information. The directory is now available in English and French.
AIR has been committed to pursuing development activities in Haiti’s education sector since 2003. This directory was developed as a direct response to former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s call for increased information on, and coordination of, civil society organizations working in Haiti.
The purpose of the directory is to identify organizations that are currently active in supporting primary and secondary education and school-based health activities to 1) help promote and encourage private sector support to the education sector; 2) link donors, the Haitian Diaspora, and the private sector to local Haitian organizations working to improve education; and 3) help to improve the coordination of education support activities in Haiti.
Following the earthquake on 12 January 2010, AIR is currently in the process of updating the directory.

- Haitian Diaspora organizations
- Haitian private sector and government
- Haitian civil society community
The directory identifies international and Haitian civil society organizations, foundations, and associations that are currently active in supporting primary and secondary education and school-based health activities, including education for out-of-school children. The directory focuses on organizations with medium- to large-scale impact. The directory does not include organizations conducting important but small-scale activities benefitting less than 100 children, excepting scholarship activities, which may offer great benefit to perhaps fewer children. AIR hopes to update and expand the directory on an on-going basis, and welcomes suggestions for additional organizations to be included. Currently the directory includes international and Haitian not-for-profit organizations working nationwide and/or in the urban areas of Port-au-Prince, Gonaïves, Cap-Haïtien, Saint-Marc, Les Cayes, and Petit-Goâve.
How was data for the directory collected?
AIR worked in partnership with a local Haitian firm to gather information from the organizations through in-person interviews, phone and email communications, and web-based research.
Who is funding this directory?
The directory is an AIR-funded initiative and is not supported by any donor funding.
