Partnership, not Sponsorship
People in Need Partnership (PINP) was founded on the idea that global change can occur when people actively engage with those that they want to help. Focusing on extreme poverty in Haiti, People in Need Partnership works to connect Haitian women and children with global partners who are able to not only help financially, but also engage directly with their Haitian partners to better understand their joys and struggles. At its best, this interaction can deeply impact both participants and help global partners understand how small, specific efforts can have a deep, and potentially global, impact.

Meet Jeannette Segu
Age: 15 years oldI like to smile a lot. I like to play with the children in my area I am a very friendly girl. And I have many friends. I eat once a day. When mom finds something, if she finds it, in the morning we have that meal. If it’s at night, about 8hpm, we will eat at 8pm.
Though there are a variety of ways to get involved, most global participants choose to partner with a Haitian and, for $10 a month, pay for their tuition to attend monthly workshops and classes that are designed to directly address the immediate needs of Haitians living in extreme poverty. While attending these classes Haitian partners get more than just information: they get food and water, an opportunity to express themselves creatively through art, have access to the internet, and, perhaps most importantly, they have the opportunity to build a strong community of support with their peers.
