Robin Hamill has joined HaitiChildren as it’s President. Robin, 49 years old, has over thirty years of experience in philanthropic work, the majority of it in fund development. Robin retired from the reinsurance and technology industries five years ago having moved to Aspen in the Fall of 2009. Since that time Robin has been actively involved in the Aspen Education Foundation (“AEF”) the last three years as it’s volunteer President. Under Robin’s leadership AEF has generated over $10M of funding for the Aspen School District.
Susie Krabacher, co-founder of HaitiChildren, will assume the newly created position of CEO of HaitiChildren effective February 1, 2015.
Commenting on the appointment of Robin, Susie said, “My husband Joe and I are thrilled to have attracted someone with extensive business and not-for-profit experience to HaitiChildren. This appointment represents our commitment to creating sustainability for the organization for a very, very long time. Robin is a pro and our team is thrilled to welcome him aboard!”
Robin commented, “What Joe and Susie have created in HaitiChildren is unbelievably inspirational. From its humble beginnings twenty years ago HaitiChildren now provides full time care to 128 abandoned children, educates over 1,200 students every day and provides nutrition and/or water to over 5,000 people every day. In addition, HaitiChildren provides medical care to our resident abandoned children, our school and to three villages that neighbor the HaitiChildren campus. It is an honor for me to join this organization in a leadership role. We are changing the expectations of Haiti each and every day.
HaitiChildren has been providing diverse services to the most vulnerable of Haiti’s citizens for 20 years. Besides giving a home and 24/7 care to 126 children, HaitiChildren also runs three schools to educate over 1100 students, serves 2,000 nutritious meals to the areas poorest villagers every day, supplies clean water daily to over 5,000, operates a medical care and therapy center, and employs 220 Haitians. HaitiChildren’s administrative staff of four in the United States is funded directly by its Board of Directors, so all donations raised go directly to programs in Haiti. HaitiChildren is supported by loyal private donors (no public funding), dedicated volunteer Board members and officers, and numerous volunteers.
