Yéle Haiti is a foundation started by Grammy-Award winning musician, producer, social entrepreneur and Haitian Goodwill Ambassador Wyclef Jean that is changing thousands of lives in this poor but optimistic nation. Through Yéle Haiti, Wyclef supports projects that are making a difference in education, health, environment and community development.

Yéle's mission is to create small-scale, manageable and replicable projects to contribute to Haiti’s long-term progress. Whether utilizing local hip-hop musicians to deliver awareness messages in forgotten neighborhoods or bringing Wyclef's famous friends to Haiti to support the movement, what Wyclef radiates is profound wishes for the country.

Each of Yéle’s projects is conceived to renew hope for Haitians to rebuild their nation. Yéle Haiti wants to project a new forward-thinking image that accurately reflects Haiti’s youthful population and their unique and irrepressible spirit, which is an integral part of their culture.

Recently Haiti has experienced natural disasters, while hurricanes and tropical storms have pounded the island. Donate through Yéle Haiti's website for the Haiti Storm Relief Fund and to learn more about the wonderful projects Yéle has completed and the projects that are active right now, at
