Leadership Is Made For Service
The US Board works in coordination with the Haitian leadership team and the HTC Foundation Board acknowledging that our role is not about how we're going to fix Haiti, but how we are going to walk together with our Haitian brothers and sisters, establishing trust, supporting their leadership, helping them to recognize their resources, building leadership capacity and developing strategy to achieve deep and lasting change.
The HTC Board ensures adherence to mission and accountability by creating a strong strategic plan, communicating strategic direction, monitoring financials, program outcomes and key performance indicators and ensuring that every board decision and goal is to make HTC Haitian owned, Haitian led, Haitian supported, and Haitian driven.
