Lan Vwa began in 2010, when their founder went to Haiti to help deliver aid after the earthquake and became involved in educational efforts.
In 2012, Lan Vwa was incorporated in Pennsylvania as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. Their name translates to “the voice” in Haitian Creole, reflecting their efforts to return what poverty has stolen from citizens of developing areas - their voice.
As Lan Vwa grew, successful programs have been implemented in Haiti and Guatemala. By connecting these communities to educational access and tools, they hope to continue empowering their students to fulfill their dreams and potential!See more
