Rising From The Rubble
As a survivor from the earthquake in Haiti in 2010, I continue to take advantage of every moment, experience, and opportunity life gives me in life. Giving back to my country has always been something I'm passionate about.
Being able to empower the youth is an opportunity and brings me great pleasure which is the reason why I have formalize my commitment to mentoring young people to believe in change their mindset, create their life and impact their community by establishing the ARISE Project For Humanity, a nonprofit 501c3 organization committed to empowering youth, survivors from Sex trafficking and underserved communities, providing mentorship support for youth to create the life their dream and assisting them to become self reliant.
As I continue to take trips back to Haiti often and meet people from all walks of life and learn about their challenges, there is no better time than now to make an impact whenever and wherever I can to help empower the people of Haiti because I believe that the power to change Haiti lies within Haitian themselves. With your support and help from our supporters, I am confident that together, we can change the lives of those in need.” – Williamson Sintyl
As a non-profit, ARISE is unique in that it is impacting change in Haiti through providing structured and goal-focused mentoring that is overseen by our certified Haitian mentors.
