Lan Vwa began when our founder went to Haiti to help deliver aid after an earthquake and became involved in educational efforts. Our name translates to “the voice” in Haitian Creole, reflecting our efforts to return what poverty has stolen from citizens of developing areas - their voice. As Lan Vwa grew, successful programs have been implemented in Haiti and Guatemala. By connecting communities to educational access and tools, we hope to continue empowering our students to fulfill their dreams and potential.
We are a community of missionaries serving and living in low-income communities.
