Everyone deserves clean water and vitamins. With your help, we can make that happen.
Haiti needs us now more than ever
When others have stepped out, we're stepping in. You can, too.
Most Haitians are living on less than $2/day without regular access to clean water and the nutrients they need to survive. Your donation will go farther than you might realize. Please help by donating any amount available to you, no matter how big or small.
Last year, with your help we were able to provide vitamins to boost the immune systems of thousands of people in Haiti. Your assistance allowed us to enhance the personal health of thousands of Haitians while minimizing the impact of disease throughout their struggling communities.
This year, we need your help again
V'ice Haiti relies on funding in order to provide vital nutrients to Haitians. V'ice workers on the ground in Haiti need monetary resources in order to deliver the vitaminzed snow cones throughout their schools, neighborhoods, and streets. We're in the beginning stages of development! Our progress slows down without outside assistance from investors and donators like you.
...But with a donation as small as $5, you can help us to deliver vitamins to 16 Haitians in need. For $100, which is more than the average Haitian earns in a month, over 300 women, children, and men in Haiti can receive the fuel their bodies so desperately need to survive.

How does it work?
V'ice currently provides affordable clean water shaved ice cones with vitaminized toppings for Haitians of all ages in the largest urban area of Haiti, Port au Prince. Here's how we do it:
We find unemployed, entrepreneurial mothers and unemployed young men to work with V'ice Haiti. Once they're ready to start working, we provide them with training, supplies, and materials needed to sell V'ice as Micro Franchisees right from their homes, in schools or on the streets... without hi-interest micro-credit loans.
Creating Jobs and Supplying Nutrients through Clean Water Shaved Ice
Our micro-franchisees begin to make an income while boosting the immune systems of children and adults in their neighborhoods. We keep it local and employ more people by manufacturing our products in Haiti.
Can V'ice sustain itself without donations?
Our long term plan has been developed from a scalable micro-franchise business model to:
Create Jobs: Haiti has an astonishing unemployment rate of over 70%. Our micro-franchise business model creates employment opportunities, allowing Haitians to double their incomes from $1-3 a day to $2-6 a day.
Scale Quickly: Your support will enable V'ice to scale throughout urban areas of Port au Prince, giving thousands access to affordable vitamin supplementation.
Reach Other Nations: Once fully established in Haiti, we will be able to bring V'ice to other developing nations.
What is a V'ice Cone?
The V'ice cone is a fortified food product. Its syrup topping is made up of natural ingredients and flavors, primarily composed of vitamins that supplement the micronutrient deficiencies most commonly found among the Haitian population, according to the Haitian Department of Health, and US AID.
The V'ice topping consists of a wide range of vitamins including A, C, D, E, Folate, K, B1, B2, B3, B12, Iron, Iodine, and Zinc.
V'ice provides the only available vitamin supplement catered specifically to the nutritional needs of the poor, while employing the poor to deliver vitamin supplementation to the poor at a price the poor can afford.
