Our directors Jez and Lynzi Blacker founded u2u in 2004 collecting used soccer uniforms and distributing them all over the world.

Their first visit to Haiti was 2009 where they have worked ever since after falling in love with the community on the island of La Gonave. Through relationship, sustainable change comes.

u2u is passionate about redeveloping devastated communities. Currently, we partner with other non-profits on the Island of La Gonave, Haiti. We helped build the Wesleyan guest house which hosts international volunteers and visiting medical and philanthropic teams. We supplied and fitted with LED a 45-bed hospital, fully equipped with a functioning surgical suite, which now has an Accredited Haitian nursing school. We bought a devastated property (due to the earthquake) on the slum of the island and our dream is to transform this into a Community/Rescue and Maternity Centre so that we can host feeding programs, trade school projects, and philanthropic teams. Will you help us reach our goal? We are registered 501c3 charity and all bi-vocational volunteers. Because of our Lighting Business, we have few Charity overheads and are able to boast that 100% of all donations go towards our projects and directly impact the people of Haiti. We are a group of friends with a vision and passion to make a difference on the island. We support Mdme Wana who oversees an orphanage of 18 children and Mdme Dalise who manages a home/hospice for disabled and homeless elderly. We partner with WISH to build water catchment systems and latrines to eradicate cholera. We help provide school supplies and equipment. We partner with Haitian entrepreneurs to help support and establish micro-enterprise and advocate for child sponsorship with Compassion International, changing lives one person at a time.
