Our Mission

Tree Angels for Haiti (TAFH) is dedicated to promoting environmental sustainability, economic stability, and community empowerment in Haiti through reforestation, sustainable agriculture, and environmental education initiatives. By fostering partnerships and engaging in impactful programs, TAFH aims to create a brighter future for Haitian communities while raising global awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship.

Tree Angels for Haiti (TAFH), a US-based 501(c)3 organization, is dedicated to reforestation, agriculture, and environmental education in Haiti. Through strong partnerships with local stakeholders and organizations, both in the US and Haiti, TAFH has implemented various initiatives over the past 14 years, including establishing tree nurseries, supporting schools, and promoting backyard gardens. These efforts have not only contributed to ongoing reforestation efforts and environmental sustainability but have also empowered local communities and fostered economic stability. TAFH further engages in community awareness activities in the US, runs give-back programs like the Angel Tree initiative, and participates in recycling-focused activities to reduce carbon footprint, showcasing their comprehensive approach to environmental stewardship and community support.

Our Story

It all started with a dream and a jingle that went "plant a tree; watch it grow." As someone who spent her childhood in the countryside, playing under luscious green mango trees under the heat of Haitian sun, the desire to aid with the current deforestation problem in Haiti started as a personal initiative after seeing the devastation caused by the earthquake in January 2010.


Sandra, along with the support of family and friends, came up with a goal that the small peninsula in the Caribbean, struggling with massive tree cutting problems, could regain its green canopies once again. That vision officially came to life in July of 2010. Ten years later, we have provided the means to grow more than 200 000 trees in many nurseries found in the commune of Leogane and surrounding regions. 

Today, we are very proud to see all the programs which derived from this grassroots movement. This includes educational, wellness and agricultural programs.  They help with food security and sustainable development. 

We are moving in the right direction and  wish to continue for many years to come.

Our Programs

Tree Planting

Our main program is to plant trees. Three times every year we go on a Haiti trip and plant in Leogane.​ 

Enviromental Education

In Haiti we visit schools and educate the children about trees. Recently we've published our own educational booklet about forests. We plan to publish more in the future.

School Partnerships

Including the backpack for Haiti program and Teachers helping Teachers Scholarship.

Dental Education

Ever since 2014 we've been going to Haitan schools and educating them about dental health. We've distributed many toothbrushes to the children and also informed them how to take care of their teeth.

Seeds for School Supplies

Exchange of seeds for school supplies in order to foster community support.

Francine's Garden

Haiti lacks many vegtables that we use everyday to cook. Our plan is to give families vegtables to plant and sell them or eat them. We've started with a few families and plan to take on neighborhoods.
