Who We Are

The Association of Exchange and Development of Activities & Partnerships, Inc. (AEDAP®), originally “Association Et Encadrement Pour Le Developpement De L’Arrière Pays”, was founded in February 1982 by Jean Th. Lindor, a native of Cavaillon. Haiti. For Jean, also known as St. Jean. the vision was simply a desire to create a better environment through several development programs for the less fortunate. Jean conducted several trainings in the areas of Education, Health, Arts and Crafts, Sports, and Social Activities. In 1998, Jean provided power of attorney to daughter Marie Flore Lindor Latortue, to continue his dream. AEDAP® is composed of professionals, clinicians, priests, pastors, and youth groups joining to meet with existing organizations to launch and support grassroots projects.
