ABOUT US

We are a U.S. based non-profit organization on a mission to transform the lives of children in Haiti and the Caribbean.

OUR MISSION

 

At ITIAH Angels for Learning®, our goal is to transform children’s lives by providing educational tools to impoverished communities in order to foster learning. Our operations are designed to obtain educational materials and provide them to schools and students in underserved communities to help aid student’s well-being and encourage educational growth so they can reach their fullest potential.
 
 
 

OUR VISION

 

ITIAH Angels for Learning® aspires to work towards eliminating extreme poverty and hardship – one student at a time, one school at a time, and one community at a time. By helping students to learn, we aim to elevate entire populations and create social progress.

OUR INSPIRATION

“Leave your country and everything you hold dear, go and do good!”
– Anne-Marie Javouhey

 

These words became the foundation of Anne-Marie Javouhey’s life. Born in 1779 in Bourgogne, France, she joined a convent at the age of 19 and began her life’s mission of fighting for the poor. She saw the problems of her time and vowed to make a difference by advocating against slavery and being determined to educate youth in the most vulnerable parts of the world. She lived to see all her hard work blossom on every continent.

 

She founded the missionary congregation Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny and dedicated her life to advancing her mission throughout the Caribbean and nations of Africa until her death at the age of 72. In 1864, three Javoueh sisters of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny congregation left their country and family behind. Sister Louise Wight, born in Trinidad, was one of the sisters who boarded a ship headed to a beautiful mountainous island referred to by many as “My darling Haiti” and affectionately labeled “The Pearl of the Antilles”.
