YSB Haiti’s expertise in social business combined with HFH's extensive inside knowledge into local Haitian communities, schools, and healthcare centers can help to facilitate the growth of sustainable businesses at a community level.

HFH and YSB Haiti expect to leverage their respective expertise and networks to support and build effective capacity over a 5-year strategic timeline.
