Composing Futures

In partnership with J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO) and Little Kids Rock, MHI brings music education to schools and communities in Haiti. Through music education, we not only foster musical interest and ability, but achievement, resilience and creativity. We believe that in a country where 25% of people live in extreme poverty, these strengths and skills are critical to navigating the challenges of life. We help children discover their power, reinforcing school and community engagement, fueling creativity and inciting hope for the future. This transformation in perspective anchors children as they mature, strengthening their resilience in the face of adversity and sustaining their drive to build a better future.

Empowering Children with Disabilities

MHI empowers children living with disabilities by connecting them to music, self-expression and their peers. In 2017, one in ten MHI students had a disability. These children are among Haiti’s most vulnerable. They are often stigmatized in their communities and overlooked by mainstream programs designed to promote child development. Through our commitment to enhancing J/P HRO’s inclusive educational model at MHI partner school, Ecole de l’Espoir, we introduced an inclusive approach to teaching music and are bringing tablet-based technology into the classroom to increase accessibility for all children.
