HELP’s mission is to build a more just society in Haiti by offering university scholarships to severely disadvantaged, top-performing students.
In March 2009, former President Bill Clinton and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon visited the HELP student center in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Upon meeting the students and learning about the program, Ban Ki-moon called the students the “hope of this country.”
