Lan Vwa began in 2010, when our founder went to Haiti to help deliver aid after the earthquake and became involved in educational efforts.
In 2012, Lan Vwa was incorporated in Pennsylvania as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. Our name translates to “the voice” in Haitian Creole, reflecting our efforts to return what poverty has stolen from citizens of developing areas - their voice.
As Lan Vwa grew, successful programs have been implemented in Haiti and Guatemala. By connecting these communities to educational access and tools, we hope to continue empowering our students to fulfill their dreams and potential!
We provide access to education in areas that would not have access without our support. Before we do anything, we begin by gathering information and developing relationships. The relationships we build are the avenue to developing projects and leaders in that area.
Every project we explore, we focus on training and nurturing the leaders to support the program. These leaders are the key to true success. As we hand over the program and step back into a supportive role, these members of the community step up to lead their neighbors, children, and friends..See Where We're On the Web
