What does SAVE stand for?
SAVE stands for "Sustaining A Village Everyday."
Why focus on Haiti?
Haiti is the poorest country in the western Hemisphere. The people in the village we serve make on average less than $1 a day. God opened the opportunity to work in Haiti, so we took it. To learn more about the disparity present in Haiti, you can visit
Is my donation tax-deductable?
Yes! When you give a donation online, a receipt will be emailed to you.
Who gets paid?
One of our main concerns is the amount of donations that are actually going to the villages of rural Haiti. Misuse of funds in order to benefit everyone except Haitians has been one of the leading causes of the economic disparity. Because of this, 100% of our domestic leadership receive no salary or compensation - we even pay for our trips to Haiti out of our own pockets. As of today, the only paid employee of SAVE is the Haitian Director of Operations, who lives in Haiti and works full-time to make sure the projects are functioning.

Is it really teen-led?
Teen empowerment is a core focus of SAVE. Our executive director, Kristi Cochrane, is the only adult on the Operational Board of Directors. The Executive Board, which is comprised of adults, fulfills the obligations that minors are legally unable to perform. The teen leaders are responsible for nearly every aspect of the organization, from fundraising events to public relations. To see the teens and adults involved in this organization, click

Is SAVE a Christian organization?
While we are not affiliated with a church, we are rooted in The Church. Our core mission is to spread the kingdom of Christ by alleviating poverty in the central plateau of Haiti. However, we do not discriminate at all against Haitian or donors of other religions and beliefs. If we build a water well in a community, everyone can use it, not just Christians.
Why was SAVE created?
It all started in 2011 when Kristi Cochrane challenged her daughter to make a difference. You can read the whole story
