Mission Statement

Partners In Development (PID) was founded in 1990 as a nonprofit organization that serves the poorest of the poor in the developing world. Through child sponsorships, micro credit loans, housing opportunities and medical care PID aims to transform communities so they can be self-sufficient. Partners In Development serves over 30,000 people each year in Haiti, Guatemala, and the US who are determined to break the cycle of poverty for their families. 


Background Statement

Partners In Development, Inc. (PID) was founded in 1990 by James and Gale Hull of Ipswich, Massachusetts, as an organization committed to the education and economic advancement of the developing world. Partners In Development works in direct partnership with those living in some of the most impoverished conditions in Haiti, Guatemala, and the United States. PID provides material, financial and educational resources, which enable the poor to construct and implement their own programs for development.

PID began its mission by offering a child sponsorship program. It has expanded from sponsoring a dozen children, when the program first began, to sending hundreds of children to school. Families who had children in the sponsorship program reported they needed help finding work. The result was our small business loan program, which lends participants capital to start or further develop a business. Since then, PID has provided hundreds of small business loans.

Squalor living conditions then prompted the beginning of the housing program, which moves families from inadequate housing to sturdy homes with bathroom facilities, clean water and a yard.

In an effort to provide whole life improvement, a medical program was established in 2002 to provide basic medical treatment, preventive care and health education services. The clinic quickly grew to treating 6,000 patients per year, and we now average 32,000 patients annually at our clinics in Haiti and Guatemala.

Late in 2013, PID announced that we would be expanding our impact by starting programs in the U.S. As the first step in our next chapter, we have been invited to work in the Mississippi Delta region.

PID hosts service trips to Haiti, Guatemala and Mississippi throughout the year. Trip attendees can learn how to build a house by hand or help with a children’s program, and licensed health professionals can volunteer their services in our medical clinics.


Impact Statement

Achievements
 
Growth of child sponsorship program: PID's comprehensive support of impoverished youth invests in Haiti's future. By providing food, medical attention, educational stipends and school uniform and shoes, PID gives Haitian and Guatemalan children opportunities otherwise unavailable. Social work case management helps children navigate difficulty of day-to-day life as well as ongoing emotional and psychological needs.
 
Successfully adapting and expanding medical clinic to provide quality services in post-earthquake Haiti.
 
Addition of new assistant field director in Haiti.
 
Overall organizational growth thanks to an increase in donations that has continued post earthquake. 
 
Goals:
 
PID has grown significantly since the earthquake. Because of the growth, it is important to set goals for developing the infrastructure. Programs evaluation and effectiveness are an important part of the process. 
Determining new staff needs in Haiti as well as the United States and developing an internal evaluation process without shifting funds away from on-the-ground work are two administrative priorities for the coming year. In regards to program,  securing enhanced funding for PID's growing medical clinic and expanding our sponsorships to 1,000 children are core goals that will drive work in 2012-2013. 
 

Needs Statement

Secure an increased financial and medical support for clinic and stable funding pipeline to accommodate increased expenses. Continue sending volunteer teams to each location while reducing overall % program funded through international, travel-based service.
 
Maintain timely and effective program evaluation as programs expand. Develop board system for evaluating success of short- and long-term priorities.

Jou Nouvo - New Day

In 2009, PID formed a partnership with Jou Nouvo to unite and respond to the needs of the poor in Bon-Repos, Haiti. Now PID/Jou Nouvo is actively working with the community to provide access to medical care, loans for small businesses, literacy programs for adults, and sponsorship programs for children so they may have the opportunity to attend school in the Bon-Repos area.

 

Jou Nouvo brings together supporters from the United States and experienced community leaders from Haiti to exchange ideas and work together in order to provide a venue and staff to teach fundamental literacy skills to adults. The program is accessible to those who, for the first time, want to learn to read and write in Creole, as well as those who wish to continue to improve their literacy skills. Additionally, the program will provide basic instruction to strengthen family health as well as guidance in economic development and stability supplemented with a small loan.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
