About us


Haitihilfe Heinz Kuehn is a private initiative, founded in 1978 by former teacher Heinz Kuehn. The main goal of the initiative, that has grown considerable in more than 35 years of its existence, is to gain children in Haiti access to basic education. To give them the chance to make change in their life and society through education and maybe to escape the vicious circle of poverty one day.

Since Haitihilfe Heinz Kuehn isn’t an association like the big NGOs, it is administered by another organization.

Since 2008 the administrative work is done by the nonprofit association "Hilfe für Osteuropa Todtnau-Seelscheid e.V.".

All helpers are unpaid volunteers!

Our promise:

We travel annually in early fall to Haiti to hand over all scholarship fees and donations personally to the children and people in need. For that reason we can guarantee that every Euro donated reaches its destination where it’s needed!
