Yéle Haiti

Wyclef Jean, Grammy Award-winning musician, humanitarian and Goodwill Ambassador to Haiti, founded Yéle Haiti in 2005. Their mission: “to create small-scale, manageable and replicable projects to contribute to Haiti's long-term progress.” Since Haiti is Jean's native country, this project holds deep meaning for him. He coined the term “yele” in a song; it means “a cry for freedom.” The recent earthquake in Haiti has created a new sense of urgency in Jean's project. You can donate any amount on the website (www.yele.org/donation/), $5 or by texting “YELE” to 501501.
