J/P Haitian Relief Organization was established in 2010 by Sean Penn and remains dedicated to finding sustainable solutions to the systemic problems of urbanization, deforestation, and poverty. We partner with neighborhoods, institutions, and local establishments that anchor communities together. Areas of focus include: Community Health, Disaster and Risk Reduction, Urban Renewal, Community and Economic Development, Education, and reforestation through the initiative, Haiti Takes Root. J/P HRO pilots scalable models by working with the critical nodes of a community as conduits to make systemic change. Through our signature participatory approach, we engage with local populations, using a consultative processes to keep the decision-making power in the hands of those most impacted.
