Mirebalais, Haiti Youth Filmmaking Learning Center(current project)
The post-Haitian earthquake period is a challenging time for the youth and young adults in every Haitian community. The Mirebalais Youth Filmmaking Learning Center is being developed to address some of the issues being experienced by the poor youth and young adults in the Mirebalais community in Haiti. There is a fertile and active community of videographers and filmmakers in Mirebalais, who have numerous needs that cannot be addressed by existing organizations in the community.
The Motion Picture Association of Haiti, Inc. (MPAH) is seeking funding to support the implementation of our Mirebalais Youth Filmmaking Learning Center. This grant will be used as general operating support to aid our efforts to diversify and deliver video programming instruction and production to the youth in Mirebalais, Haiti and by assisting local independent filmmakers through our wide range of services.
This fund will be used to help purchase video equipments and lighting sets.

Help Support our video and filmmaking center for youth in Boston
Learning Center project summary
One of the most important aspects of the learning center is to provide opportunities for young people to further develop their creative skills and talents in arts.
The Center will offer after-school program, weekend and summer classes to more than 300 students a year, 90 percent of whom come from low-income households.
The Center will bring high-quality arts education to families who would otherwise not have these opportunities.
We believe that young people need a space to express them self that can keep them away from peer pressure and other negative influences. The learning center is not only met to educate young people but it’s also a place where they can develop relationship among them self and work with adult who can serve as mentor.
We will provide video and filmmaking classes to the disadvantage young people in Boston.
MPAH does not have paid staff. All work of the Organization is totally volunteer. The trustee contributes funds necessary to support the operations of MPAH. Contributions from individuals/businesses and other public or private entities go entirely to assist our programs.

Haiti Quake Search
Since the Haitian earthquake the Motion Picture Association of Haitian, Inc. has implemented the “Haiti Quake Search Project” in which we have help 2,000 Haitians locate their love one, families and friends in Haiti. We created a website http://www.haitiquakesearch.org and thousands of Haitians have contacted us regarding their missing relatives.

This was our direct support and contribution to the family members affected by the devastated earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12 2010. As of now the website remain on as a reference database website for the public and the media but the services of locating missing Haitian on the ground are no longer in effect.
