OUR MISSION

Our mission is to support youth living in Haiti while strengthening Haitian youth living in the United States. We believe that education is the key to escaping poverty.

ABOUT MIPO

Making the Impossible Possible, Inc. (MIPO, Inc.) is a 501c3 organization dedicated to promoting the quality of life of immigrant youth and their families residing in the New York metropolitan area through a variety of activities. Projects range from providing free college tours and scholarships to high school graduating seniors to distributing school supplies to disadvantage students. We support schools in Haiti with short and long-term projects and conduct professional development training for educators in Haiti.

Our mission is to vigilantly help young men and women transition into productive citizens of this world by providing them with sustainable skills to compliment their innate ability. We believe that our youth can attain their full potential given the opportunity to challenge their own expectations. Education, commitment, dedication, and mentoring efforts are all components to escaping the revolving cycle of life.

The urgency in providing relief and assistance to communities in need lies in the fact that the lasting physical and emotional effects of poverty have a documented ripple effect through generations and can affect many.
