Hope for Haiti Foundation has been serving alongside rural Haitian communities for more than twenty years. Join us in helping Haiti help itself.
Hope for Haiti Foundation’s work impacts individual Haitians, empowering them to act and change their own nation. We are equipping a new generation with a vision and the skills to make the dream a reality.
Already, there are native Haitians making a difference as nurses, ministers, and teachers. The future undoubtedly holds influencers in law, politics, community organization, media and more.

Meet our Founder & Board of Directors
A dreamer since the age of 12, Elade has finally reached his goals of transforming Zorangé. This film highlights the foundation’s progress, as well as the never-ending hope of its founder. Next Beautiful World is meant to showcase the amazing potential of dreams, no matter how long it takes to reach them. The film is motivational for the filmmaker Marquise, who, as Elade’s daughter, continues to be inspired by him every day.
Jean Elade Eloi was born in the small village of Zorangé, in the southeast district of Haiti. At 12, Elade spoke his dream out loud for the first time: “When I grow up, I want to help Haiti.”
He moved to the United States in 1982 and eventually graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in biochemistry. He went on to pursue a career in biotechnology.
In 1999, Elade founded Hope For Haiti Foundation in his home village. In 2008, Elade began to devote himself to full-time mission work. Although he enjoys activities like soccer and golf, most of his free time is spent thinking about Haiti.
Elade married Cherlyne in 1989 and has two daughters, Marquise and Maxine. Elade says that without God and Cherlyne, there would be no Hope for Haiti Foundation.
