Programs

Ayiti Connect

Ayiti Connect is a collection of programs of Ayiti Community Trust that aims to educate young Ayitian Americans on Ayit’s history and culture in order to build a generation of Ayitian American philanthropists dedicated to Ayiti’s long-term development as well as sustainable and vibrant networks of Ayitian communities in Florida and across the United States. The series curates meaning experiences using visual art, music, literature, language, spirituality, to facilitate the passing of tradition between generations.

Ti Kont

The “Ti Kont” program draws from Ayiti’s rich story-telling traditions to shape a narrative about the lived experiences of Ayitian immigrants, their contribution to their immigrant communities, and their enduring connections to Ayiti. We believe that tapping into our collective experiences and sharing these stories will provoke relevant memories of personhood, heritage, and culture.

Ti Kont empowers the transformative narrative about Ayiti. Thereby, creating authors who will use deeper context to illustrate the connections of social, political, economic, and environmental dynamics towards a new paradigm. We are pleased to be collaborating with Florida Humanities to bring the Ti Kont series to various communities of Ayitian predominance.

Connecting Ayitian Communities Mapping Program

Connecting Ayitian Communities is a partnership between Ayiti Community Trust (ACT) and the Haitian American Professionals Coalition (HAPC), a collective comprised of 16 organizations in South Florida. This project, funded by CFLeads, will further enable these sixteen organizations, as a network, to enhance the collective strengths of the Ayitian -American community in Southern Florida in order to improve socio-economic outcomes and impacts for Ayitians in the U.S. and in Ayiti.

Using the Mapping Tool created by the Ford Foundation, Connecting Ayitian Communities will carry out a 2-phase process that includes:

Mapping

Mapping each organization’s mission and strategies, leadership and governance, administration and finance, methods of learning and evaluation, advocacy, community engagements in the US and Ayiti as well as their fundraising and donor relations; 

Mining

Mining the information from the organizations to identify the main elements in their work and map out how they interact, relate, and connect and how they can be leveraged for greater socio-economic impact for the Ayitian community in the US and Ayiti.
