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.
$10 Can Create Real Change
Meet Sheila Estimee
Age: "I don't know how old I am"We eat rice and beans when we can find it but we do eat anything that we can find that is eatable. I do not know how to read. My parents did not send me to school. If someone could help me to start a little business to take care of my children and myself. That would make me very, very happy.
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.
