Welcome to the website of Fundacion Zile

WELCOME

Fundacion Zile is a non-profit organization whose mission is to work on the safeguarding of peace, the extension of the co-operation and the reinforcement of the bonds of friendship and solidarity between the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti.

At the end of the year 2004, political turbulences in Haiti caused an increase in the migratory flux towards the Dominican Republic. That encouraged former Dominican and Haitian civil servants and some religious leaders to create a virtual group to exchange information and to discuss the relations between the two countries.

In May 2005, the violent events which have occurred in the rural community of Hatillo Palma, in the north of the Dominican Republic, after the death of a Dominican tradesman and the acts of revenge who followed and in which a Haitian worker died, persuaded the group to set up a permanent organization of conservation of peace between the two people.

As an organisation advocating and defending human rights, Fundacion Zile is committed in the preparation, the sponsorship and the execution of plans, projects and with binational actions which will help to overcome the differences of the past and to lead the two countries on the way of a sustainable development.
