Hello

My name is Williamson Sintyl. 

Five years ago I started an organization called ARISE Project For Humanity to give every single Haitian access to a mentor. As Haitians continue to fight and survive all kinds of challenges and obstacles, many of the areas we are working in are in enormous need of our mentorship program.
 
ARISE works with young leaders all over Haiti who are making concrete differences in their own community to help change the mindset, create sustainable life and impact communities through our mentoring program. The work we’ve been doing for years is exactly what Haiti needed right now in order to change one child, one life at a time. We need your help to make sure that young people discover more of their potential, to know that they truly can and will be the change of this country because they lack basic resources such as education, mentoring, and access to better opportunities.
 
As a member of our monthly giving community: Give To Inspire, you’ll join nearly a hundred people from all over the USA who are stepping up each and every month to provide these life-giving essentials for those in need in Haiti.
100% of every donation goes directly to the work on the ground in Haiti. 
With your contributions, we can go faster and build more mentoring programs around the country. 
 
I hope you might join us.

My Story

On a Tuesday in January of 2010, for no clear reason, my mother came to my school in Haiti to pick me up early. In Haiti, you don't usually leave school until your homework is done. The fact that my mother came and picked me up that particular day is a testimony for me that God loves every one of us and watches out for us. That day was when we had the big earthquake. I was sixteen and she brought me to one of the orphanages that my father ran. I went in and was sitting and talking with the little children when suddenly, the building started shaking and it collapsed on top of us. It was a three story building full of little children and I was on the bottom floor.

I didn't know what had happened...and at that time, I didn't know much about God even though we were Catholic. While I was in that collapsed building, I remember hearing people screaming and I spoke to God. I told Him, 'if You save me, I will serve You.' I was crying and screaming to get out. A voice came to me telling me to stop screaming because I would use up all my energy screaming and that I would die if I didn't stop. I actually heard that voice telling me to be calm. Over the next twenty-nine hours, one by one, all the little children in that collapsed building stopped crying and screaming. One by one, I could almost hear them passing away. My arm was broken and blood was all over my face. I could hear people digging and praying and looking for survivors. There were no tractors or tools to get people out. They used picks and knives and machetes to dig me out. 

All the time I was buried alive, there was someone there with me, keeping me calm. I was close to dying...I was so tired and hungry. I kept hearing that voice that gave me hope. They found fifteen bodies before they got to me. They dropped a rope down a hole and a man came down to get me and he got stuck. They had to pull him out before they could get to me. The moment they got me was when I was sure I was going to die. It was the last possible moment.

Haiti was devastated by the earthquake. The saddest part of my story is that all my classmates that stayed in school to do their homework, like we always did, were all dead. If my mother hadn't come to get me from school like she did, I would have been killed that day. Even then, we still thought life was over. There was no water, no food, no work...but there was still hope. That was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I reached out to God to know why He saved my life.

in 2015, I started an organization called ARISE Project For Humanity to give every single Haitian access to a mentor. As Haitians continue to fight and survive all kinds of challenges and obstacles, many of the areas we are working in are in enormous need of our mentorship program.

The nonprofit organization was founded in 2015 by Haitian Man Williamson Sintyl and later one, his wife Sharla Kjar Sintyl Joined and become the co. founder. After visiting Haiti for their first time together in 2016, they discovered that A Mentoring Program is a must for Haiti, a place that will not only empower young people but also create leaders and provide quality education and technical training. A place for youth to develop skills and have access to internships and great mentors.
We're counting on your contribution to to inspire and equip our youth to build the Haiti of tomorrow. 

 

Because they could not afford to help build that center, they invited friends and family to help them start. In April 2018, they started the first Mentoring Program in Haiti with 5 Mentors in 5 different places in Haiti to teach young people the principles that will help change their life their community and their country out of poverty.

 

In July 2018, they partnered with Operation Underground Railroad, an organization work with Trafficking all over the world. ARISE Project For Humanity is now exist in more than a dozen cities around Haiti and now in US in order to help end Chid-Trafficking and Help FREE Children.

"Now, I have something to give back to Haiti. I started a project called ARISE Project for Humanity. I want to empower new generations, especially in Haiti, to believe that, in spite of hard times, there is always hope and that we can create what we need to be successful. My dream is to see Haiti become an example of standing on its own and to prove that we can all make a difference. We all have something to do, something to give, and something to create.''
