Thank you for supporting Haiti Initiatives at Hastings!
The Hastings to Haiti Partnership
The Hastings to Haiti Partnership (HHP) advances the rule of law and promotes human rights in Haiti by supporting the country’s legal education and engaging in human rights advocacy. HHP represents a collaboration of UC Hastings College of the Law and the École Supérieure Catholique de Droit de Jérémie (ESCDROJ), the only law school in Haiti dedicated to preparing students to serve the public interest. Since 1999, HHP has sent annual delegations of UC Hastings faculty and students to our sister school in Haiti, and we have also hosted several delegations of Haitian lawyers and students in San Francisco.
To keep the partnership open to all UC Hastings and ESCDROJ students, HHP solicits donations that help defray the costs of travel. Donations will also provide much needed resources to support the launch of the first Criminal and Social Justice Clinic at the law school in Haiti. We also welcome in-kind donations such as laptop computers and airline miles and provide opportunities for lawyers and other advocates in the Bay Area to mentor Haitian law students.
If you would like to donate directly to support the launch of the Criminal and Social Justice Clinic at our partner school in Haiti, please follow this link and make sure to write “CUA Haiti Initiatives” in the “designation” section. Or, you can donate to HHP below, and let us know any restrictions in the “additional information” section.

21st Century Chalkboard Project
The 21st Century Chalkboard Project helps young people who were born into poverty in Haiti gain access to educational resources. The Project uses recycled computers to design, program, and deliver educational software in Creole directly to educators and students in Haiti. The Project originated with an HHP visit to schools in and around Jérémie, Haiti in 2009. HHP has now officially adopted the 21st Century Chalkboard Project.
Donations to the 21st Century Chalkboard Project provide computers, software, translation, training, and essential infrastructure to support student learning in Haiti.
