K-12 Haiti is the current evolution of what started out as Angels in Cowboy Boots (AICB) in 2010 when the Twining family staged a relief response to the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake. K12 Haiti is managed by the people at Roost & Root and has the same 501 C3, same EIN, same nonprofit company charter that it started with. Over the past decade, we’ve tried a lot of things to drum up interest in Haiti… AICB, Ekolaj, Native Egg, K-12 Canaan.
Haiti is a rough and tumble place that seldom conforms to the ideals of our western world. We’ve stumbled a lot. But with your help, we’ve continued to make progress. In the past several years, for a variety of reasons, we’ve settled on helping schools and K-12 Haiti is the evolution of our efforts to do more of that. Every day, not only do the Twinings, but dozens of employees at Roost & Root help to make possible continued progress. We aim to figure out how to do millions of dollars of good in Haiti. Our slow but constant growth will fuel the wisdom and resources to make it possible.
