Community-based organizations (CBOs) face many challenges, including insufficient funds, limited financial and administrative capacity and lack of stability. These deterrents restrict their ability to grow and maintain their programs and ultimately serve the people in their communities. The Haiti Development Institute (HDI) provides coaching and organizational strengthening to CBOs to increase their impact. At the IAF we support community-led solutions to unlock private, public and local resources for grassroots development in Haiti. HDI’s activities enable institutions to make more resources available to communities seeking to address their own development needs.
