The Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, Tennessee was paired with the Saint Jean Baptiste Parish in La Vallée de Jacmel, Haiti through the Parish Twinning Program of America. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization in 1992, the Haiti Parish Twinning Program matches up U.S. and Haiti parishes to support the Haitian Parish's needs. Haiti has struggled to create economic development due to lack of infrastructure, political unrest, and the prevalence of natural disasters. Our organization supports the Haiti parish community through education, health, spiritual growth, and business development. We believe that we are creating the future leaders of Haiti, by giving the youth the resources they need to flourish in their communities. We have a team of dedicated Haitians and Americans who are working to provide the funds and expertise needed to do so.
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with a large percentage of its population living in extreme poverty. It has suffered through political crises and natural disasters, only making life more difficult for the Haitian people.
Our team is comprised of dedicated Haitians and Americans who strive to improve the lives of the people in Haiti. Having many years of experience living and working in Haiti, our staff continues to grow and learn how to best serve its community.
