About Us

Why We Serve

Association Haitienne de Developpement Humain, (AHDH), is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit founded in November 1986 to promote the betterment of Haitians through humanitarian programs that focus on healthcare, education, culture and development in Haiti and Louisiana. AHDH was formed by a group of committed Haitians living in New Orleans, Louisiana. They have pooled their professional, intellectual, economic and cultural resources for the betterment of Haiti. AHDH also aims to share Haitian cultural heritage with residents of Louisiana by celebrating Haitian culture and creating events around the themes of Haitian history, art, theater, film, radio and celebrations.

Along our journey, we have been supported by partner non-profits such as Coude-à-Coude pour le Dévelopement Valléen (CODEVA), a Haitian Non-Government Organization (NGO) and its sister organization, Fraternité Valléenne, based in the United States.

For too long, statistics have stigmatized the first independent Black Republic without any substantial improvement. In the Western Hemisphere, Haiti still has:

  • The lowest income per capita ($240)
  • The highest illiteracy rate (76%)
  • The highest infant mortality (130/1000 live births)
  • 60% have no access to health care & a life expectancy of 48 years

With AHDH you can enjoy cultural exchanges, educational activities and the opportunity to go on missions with AHDH while associating with and contributing to our causes.

CODEVA’s Founding Philosophy

Do all the good you can
Every time you can
Every way you can
For as many people as you can
Everywhere you can
Until you can not anymore.
