About Us

YesImpact is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing education, health, and community development to the underprivileged citizens of Haiti and other parts of the world. This organization was started on August 21, 2015, by the initiative of Jean Kedler Abelard, an American citizen, born in Haiti. Afterward, the organization was welcomed by co-founders Dieusibon Cidélus and Nahama Azard. Since then, the organization has been working tirelessly and welcomes other active members to its membership. Given the social and economic situation in Haiti, families are struggling to meet the minimum needs of their children. YesImpact wants to be the spokesperson for all its suffering people, it also wants every child to have the opportunity to attend school to conquer hope for a better future. Each year many Haitian children struggle to attend school due to the lack of economic means of their parents. YesImpact is very grateful to its donors who offer their support to make a lasting difference in the lives of children. To be honest, the organization cannot achieve its goals without the support of its committed partners. We are so thankful that a local church (Eglise de Dieu la Trinité de Terre-Gaman) in Haiti lets us use their spare room for our first classroom, but we have enlarged the space to be able to accept our students because we are growing every year. However, we also want to construct an adequate permanent school with more resources and materials to meet the needs of students and teachers. Dr. Pierre Pierrot, a member of the Board, leads our health initiatives. He also provides health care services to our students and staff. Now the organization is looking to expand this program through mobile clinics in all 10 departments across the country. For our health section, our ultimate goal is to build a hospital capable of providing health care at all levels and operating 24/7. In the end, the idea for this project came from Kedler, who, thanks to the missionaries of Double Harvest, had the opportunity to do his classical studies in a quality school in the rural area of Croix-des-Bouquets. However, his intelligence and wisdom allowed him to benefit from the help and generosity of some American friends, which made it easier for him to start his university studies in the United States. Nevertheless, Kedler never gave up his origin, he visited Haiti several times. Attracted by the problem of destitute children, in August 2015, he decided to do something to help the country by setting up an organization that could help children and families in Haiti. Since then, he has worked hard to make this dream a reality whose sole objective is to further educate and enrich the culture of humanity.
