Centre d’Action pour le Developpement (CAD) or Center of Action for Development

Since 1992, this Non Governmental Organization (NGO) supports children in difficult circumstances (street children, domestic servants and orphans) by providing them with shelter, schooling, psychosocial support, health, and vocational training. In addition, CAD conducts training sessions for the group OCBS and those who live with HIV/AIDS in the North West Department of Haiti.

CAD’s mission is to care for the social reintegration of street children and those in conflict with the law. They work in partnership with the IBESR (Institut du Bien Être Social in French), a Haitian State Agency which refers the children to CAD. For now, CAD houses 75 to 90 children from the age of 7 to 14 years but their ultimate goal is to ensure 150 children per year access to education, vocational training, health, housing and a family environment.

CAD is registered with both the Ministry of Social Affairs and Ministry of Planning in Haiti. The organization was able to fulfill their projects with the support of other organizations such as Terre des Hommes Swiss, Chaîne du Bonheur, Service de Solidarité Internationale suisse, PLAN – Haïti, UNICEF, OIM and CRS.
