In addition to the 18 dedicated Feeding Program Directors employed directly by Trinity HOPE, our programs also support the creation of the following jobs:
9 food vendor companies and their employees
Numerous employees in the transportation industry to transport the food.
By purchasing all the food we serve from local vendors, Trinity HOPE invests over $850,000 per year in the local Haitian economy. Adding in the salaries paid for jobs created, we impact and improve the lives of thousands of Haitian families each year.
We believe Haiti must continue to move towards self-sufficiency, striving one day to not need on-going help. Trinity HOPE has trained and developed our Haitian Feeding Program Directors to totally manage the programs in Haiti. We do not have any Americans on the ground in Haiti to run the programs. Each August we bring all the feeding program directors together for on-going training and further development of management skills.
