We are a non – profit organization


Impacting children’s lives through education and the love of God


Educate, inspire and empower young people to build a life worth well-living to serve their communities.


Develop Empower Smart and Mighty Youths (DESAMY) Inc. is a remarkable non-profit organization dedicated to creating positive social change in the lives of underprivileged youth in rural communities of Haiti. Their main program, Cultivate Talent focuses on providing academic support, tutoring services, and career development opportunities to at-risk youth, empowering them to become innovative thinkers and active contributors to their communities and nation-building.

Founded by Rose Berth François, DESAMY began as her personal quest to find purpose in life and serve others. Having experienced the importance of education herself, she was determined to offer the same opportunities to underprivileged children in Haiti. Recognizing the challenges faced by youth in Haiti, including violence, food insecurity, poverty, and lack of access to education, she decided to take action and make a difference.

After becoming a fully formed 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in October 2017, DESAMY focused on benefiting underserved kids and those with learning disabilities. Rose’s experience in mental health, counseling, and working with children’s behavioral issues further reinforced her belief that empowering young people and families could lead to transformative change.

DESAMY’s mission goes beyond just academic support; it encompasses a holistic approach to personal development, character building, and skill-building for the youth they serve. By providing literacy programs, educational resources, and after-school and summer enrichment programs, they aim to break the cycle of poverty and foster youth empowerment.

The organization’s dedication to education equity is evident in its focus on low-income families and underserved communities. DESAMY believes that investing in the human capital of these youths is crucial for sustainable solutions and positive societal changes.

Through community outreach and collaboration with educators and respected community personnel, DESAMY identifies the most vulnerable families and students in rural Haiti, ensuring that their programs reach those who need them the most. By nurturing youth leadership and cultivating talent, they are actively working to uplift the communities they serve.

DESAMY’s journey, from its inception as Wings Of Hope Innovation (WOHI) to its current form, is a testament to the dedication and passion of its founder and the team of professionals from diverse backgrounds who share the same vision of transforming young lives in Haiti.

As demonstrated by their business plan and official 501(c)(3) document, Develop Empower Smart And Mighty Youths (DESAMY) Inc. is making a significant impact in underserved communities, instilling hope, and fostering a brighter future for the youth of Haiti.
