MIJABA in Haiti
Ministere du Jardin de Bainet is a youth-guided non-profit organization that aims to build a sustainable future for Haitian villagers in Bainet. Dr. Jeff Losier, a medical doctor from the village of Moreau, founded the organization in 2012 with the help of five youth who were passionate about community-led initiatives to improve health, education, and the environment in several villages in the region — Moreau, Moka, Source Benoit, Bonhomme, and Klosier.
MIJABA in the US
In 2022, Dr. Jeff invited four colleagues in the US to create a partner organization based in Minnesota. Our goal is to raise awareness of the work Dr. Jeff has been leading in Bainet over the last decade and support the many community-led initiatives that are ongoing in the five member villages. Our board of directors responds to the needs of the community and builds trusted relationships to ensure that local leaders are in charge of donor-funded projects — placing equity and sustainability at the center of our work.
