H3Missions, Inc. Story

Help for hurting humanity

Ten years ago, H3Missions, Inc. became a nonprofit corporation to help the people in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. Read our story. With the onset of the pandemic and the unrest in Haiti, our nonprofit had to make the hard decision to suspend mission trips to Haiti. Aware that the need in Haiti is great, we continued with a few projects that we could assist with while remaining in the United States.

Jeanne’s Charnigo Learning Academy Port Au Prince, Haiti

In May of 2020, Markenley proposed Jeanne’s Vocational Training Project, an in-depth Study Program for school children. This program was centered around helping children achieve better grades by tutoring all academic subjects. He approached a few private schools that accepted and offered scholarships as long as the child maintained or excelled in the study program. Then began the slow task of meeting with each interested family. Initially, he interviewed twenty children along with their parents. But it soon became apparent the facilities and staff could not give the individual attention to twenty children, and they reduced the program to a manageable size of ten children. After meeting with the parents, the enthusiastic students received a medical and dental examination.

The pilot program started on October 22, 2021. Students would stay on campus at the Learning Academy from Friday after school through Sunday afternoon. The Learning Academy program would run for 3 months, and there have been 2 successful programs. Tutoring included French Grammar, Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, and upcoming homework.
Friday after school. Dinner and movie night.
Saturday: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tutoring, Trades (computer lessons/Crochet)
Sunday: Breakfast and lunch. Homework review and departure.

Opening a Store

We helped Davidson and his sister, Gilberte, set up a small store in Montrouis, Haiti. To sell water by the gallons, we installed a complete water system in their store. We had solar panels installed to provide a needed service in Haiti of a cell phone recharging station.

Ivens Previl Education

Another project was assisting Ivens Previl with the resources to attend computer classes. He is the last of seven children and expressed that he wanted to find a path that would allow him to excel and provide for his family. We sponsored a 2-year program for Ivens, which included buying him a moped so he could commute to classes. He has now graduated and is looking forward to a promising future.

Markenely Chery of Port au Prince has been our primary support manager for our medical mission trips in Haiti for the first ten years. He wanted to help the children in his surrounding community. When one of our supporters and volunteers passed away, she left a legacy dedicated to helping the children in Haiti.

Learning a Trade

Markenely Chery submitted his proposal to H3Missions, Inc. It was approved, and he guided a pilot program at an orphanage for sewing classes and computer science lessons. H3Missions, Inc. sent him to Jacmel, Haiti, for a week to observe and learn about a successful ongoing nonprofit sewing academy.

Armed with knowledge and experience, Markenely located five treadle sewing machines, interviewed future students, and hired an experienced teacher. Classes ran for six months, with advanced courses for six months. The program was a success, renewed, and ongoing for two years.

Study Camp

On November 18, 2021, Markenley submitted his second proposal to H3Missions, Inc. He looked for scholarships and found acceptance letters from a local private school in the community. The program is called, Study Camp. The program helps children attend school and maintain good grades by tutoring in all academic subjects. Tutoring includes French Grammar, Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, and upcoming homework. The project will run Friday through Sunday for three months during the school year.

Mechanics 101

Markenely submitted a Mechanics proposal to H3Missions, Inc. to help older boys unable to find work. He hired a teacher, and this class is currently ongoing. A maximum of five students in one class for a total of three months.

Jeanne’s Charnigo Learning Academy Sewing Classes

The sewing classes were the first program to be implemented at the academy. The girls were selected from the community to participate. Due to the severity of the pandemic some of the first students could not continue the program. The program ran for 6 months. At the end of the course the girls all made skirts for their final project. They had a graduation ceremony and their skirts were judged.

During the program they used one week to make jewelry. It was a success and they had a sale and they used the proceeds to buy sewing supplies. In the program they learned how to take measurements, make patterns, trace patterns, cut material, hand stitch and used the sewing machines. The program has been continuous for 2 years with new students starting.

Ten years after the 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti!

Again, Haiti faces another devastating crisis as a 7.2 magnitude earthquake shook the country’s southern end on August 14, 2021. The southern area is not as populated as the country’s capital that suffered the shattering earthquake in 2010 that killed over 220,000 souls and displaced more than 300,000 people.
H3Missions, Inc. was founded by a group of compassionate individuals who wanted to respond to the 2010 crisis. Led by Nyron McLean, the team headed for Haiti to help with supplies and medical needs and have continued their efforts for over ten years.
Unfortunately, when the pandemic swept the earth, worldwide nonprofits were forced to suspend mission trips. However, our friends in Haiti need us more than ever now as they search for loved ones beneath the rubble of another devastating blow to the country.  
H3Missions, Inc. has joined Haiti One to help as their team coordinates assistance and supplies sent to the country. To streamline their efforts, Haiti One has a GoFundMe account set up to help Hospital Bernard Mevs & Project Medshare assist those affected by the devastation.

Markenley Chery, one of H3Missions, Inc.’s partners in Haiti is assembling a team to head to Les Cayes and surrounding areas to assist where and as needed.
At this time, we will coordinate with Haiti One to support all efforts by making sure our team on the ground can assist with supplies and services. Would you please help us streamline these efforts by donating to Haiti One at the above link to help the people of Haiti during these trying times?

St. Marc is a large port town surrounded by mountains. At all times, there are many boats in the port, typically sail boats. The town was first settled in 1716, then located in the French colony of Saint-Domingue.[1]

The town is located on flat land close to the sea but its edges extend into the foothills. From these vantage points, the ocean is sometimes viewable. The city has a few park spaces, including Place Cite Nissage Saget. These parks are often surrounded by vendors with carts full of goods.

Local residents enjoy the rich culture of St. Marc and it is considered a safe place to live. About 60% of the population lives in the communal section, meaning outside of town. As a result, they are beyond its infrastructure and lack drainage systems, electricity and potable water.

Port de paix

During the Amerindian period this area was called “Xarama” by the Taïno people. The area around the town was given the name “Valparaíso” by Christopher Columbus after landing here in the late evening of December 6, 1492, and today still contains many attractive beaches and cave locations. A ferry operates between the town and Tortuga island, (La Tortue), called “Gusaeni Cahini” by the Taïnos, which is situated just across the water.

The town was founded in 1665 by French filibusters, driven from Tortuga Island by the British occupiers. In 1676 the capital of the French Colony of Saint-Domingue was moved from Tortuga to Port-de-Paix, and it remained the seat of government until 1711 when the capital was moved to Cap-Français. In 1676, Padrejean escaped from slavery in the Port. In 1679 the town saw the first black slave revolt. The area saw great success during the 18th century but on February 27, 1903 the town was almost entirely destroyed by fire, and never attained its former status.

Croix Des Bouquets

Croix-des-Bouquets is a northern suburb in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area. Haiti is world-famous for its exuberant art, richly influenced by nature, history and religion, both Christian and Vodou. The entire village of Croix des Bouquets is a good example of Haitian creativity – it resonates with the sounds of clanging and banging of the mallets and chisels in the process of transforming raw metal into stunning, and often haunting, iron sculptures. The city of Croix-des-Bouquets is on the Plaine du Cul-de-Sac, where many people grow organic foods such as beans, sweet potato, and corn.

On March 22, 1792, the city was the scene of one of the first battles of the Haitian Revolution.

Prior to the 12 January 2010 earthquake, the once crowded city had been restored. The streets had been cleaned up, wholesale merchants and other commerce had been relocated to Port-au-Prince. Retail commerce which once crowded sidewalks downtown now had a dedicated building.
