Yon Sel Lanmou is a 501(c)3 non-profit that is incorporated in the State of Colorado, but our work takes place in Haiti. We empower Haitians to create the society that they want. That is why our Vice President is a Haitian living in Haiti, and why the majority of our Directors have lived in Haiti for several years and are fluent in Kreyol.
Your tax-deductible donation will be put to wise use in Haiti. 100% of your donation will directly benefit Haiti, as Yon Sel Lanmou does not pay any American staffers. The more that you give, the more that we can help Haiti. Every donation counts, and even a small donation can go a long ways in Haiti. For example, a $10 donation would allow to hire a worker for 1 day (the average salary in Haiti is ~$5/day, but we feel that is exploitative, and we want to set a standard of paying workers a living wage).
Our dear friend Mona Augustin has been an outspoken supporter of Haitian people, and of Yon Sel Lanmou. He has performed at our benefit concert, is an instructor at Royalty Free Haiti, and has selflessly devoted heroic efforts to support Village Mozayik. This gifted musician recently released the CD Mamamee that we encourage you to purchase. In additional to getting to hear amazing original Haitian music, you will know that your purchase is benefiting Village Mozayik featured in this documentary. Click here to purchase the CD.
We are grateful to our many donors and supporters. Most of our donors request to remain anonymous, so that is our ‘default’ action. We welcome donors to advertise their generosity, and are happy to publicly recognize your support on our website. Simply ask.
