Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti
Given our small office and high volume of work, we depend heavily on volunteers to help us with translations, advocacy, writing and much more. Thank you to volunteers all over the world, in all stages of their careers and education, who make time for IJDH. We are eternally grateful.
