The Real Haiti Kids is an online portal for parents and teachers to access information about Haiti and the Haitian culture. Sure, you could spend hours and hours searching for kid-friendly information about Haiti (trust me, I've been doing this for years) and you will find some with lots of digging. However, the information either outdated, terrible quality, in 5 million different places or about an orphan or earthquake survivor. There's so much more to Haiti and Haitian culture than devastation and feeling like we need to save Haiti.
We provide quality resources for parents and teachers to use to teach kids about Haiti and Haitian culture.

BLOG POST: MULTICULTURAL BOOKS IN ENGLISH AND HAITIAN CREOLE
In 2010, husband and wife team, Endy and Diana, started The Real Haiti travel blog to show the world the other side of Haiti through their experiences. Now parents of 2 young boys, the couple has expanded The Real Haiti to include teaching resources on Haiti and the Haitian culture.
We are a husband and wife team who live in Florida with our two boys. We started traveling to Haiti regularly over a decade ago and The Real Haiti blog was born in 2012. We were selected as winners of the former Minister of Tourism's rebranding contest with the slogan, "Experience It" or "Se La Pou'w La!" We were given a plaque by former President Michel Martelly and attended a special ceremony to launch the official logo and slogan.
The mission of The Real Haiti has always been to educate others about Haiti and all of the amazing things that she has to offer. Because the news generally focuses on the negative, we were motivated to start sharing encouraging pictures, videos, stories and memories about Haiti. While we still share the beauty of Haiti, The Real Haiti has become much more than sharing pretty pictures.
The Real Haiti has become the missing link between you and Haiti. We are industry leaders in connecting you to people, places and things in Haiti! Need a photographer in Haiti for hire? Don't know where to start in planning a trip to Haiti? Not sure how to ethically import goods for your business? We can help!
Who is The Real Haiti for?
We are so passionate about sharing the Haitian culture with you. Let's work together to show the world The Real Haiti!
Yesterday I made some changes to the website and purchased a new URL (www.therealhaitiacademy.com) to expand marketing on the membership services offered by The Real Haiti. Well, after I did that, I immediately got a DM from my friend Nancy Francois over at Haitian American Youth (HAY) Online saying...
"Hi love your website is down. Is everything okay?"
I started sweating and panicking about what just happened. My website somehow got unpublished and immediately Nancy was messaging me to make sure everything was ok. Sometimes as entrepreneurs it feels very isolating and you get tired of working day in and day out without some teamwork. Thankfully Nancy jumped right in to encourage me to calm down and take some more steps to getting back online.
To know that Nancy has my back is so comforting. Since the day I met her over 10 years ago at a Haitian book fair event, she has been so supportive. In fact, she had already been following me and knew all about The Real Haiti.
Nancy is a mom blogger who actively shares client content daily to promote brands. She also posts free daily general SEO tips and advice for brands. Nancy has been sharing The Real Haiti content for over 10 years. This post is all about my appreciation for another mom blogger who gets The Real Haiti brand and mission. Nancy, you are a gem and the most hard working woman I know. Thank you for all of your support, advice, promotion and guidance throughout the years. You are such a gem and we are so lucky to have your help!
