What is Ti Manman Chery and Ede Pep?

Ti Manman Cheri is a social welfare program that was launched on 27th May 2012 by the President of the Republic of Haiti. It is the first of its kind welfare program under which, the government will provide facilities to extremely poor families with children. The program will facilitate schooling and improve living conditions and the first beneficiaries targeted were Carrefour Feuilles, Cité Soleil, Fort National and Bel-Air. The government planned to use $13 million from PetroCaribe to fund this program.


According to Ti Manman Cheri, government proposed to send money through Tchocho mobile phone service of Digicel to every mother given the condition that their children enrolled and went to school regularly. 400, 600 or 800 gourdes would be given every month to mothers with 1, 2 or 3 child respectively. Initial registration was decided to be for 6 months with 10 allowed renewals totaling up to 5 years. The program aimed at reaching 100,000 beneficiary families.

Ede Pep on the other hand is also welfare program that was launched in La Plaine du Nord. It is also called Basket of Solidarity and aims towards fighting poverty. Each Basket of Solidarity contains rice, corn, salt, peas, spaghetti and tomato paste that are bought from all local places in Haiti. This not only benefits the direct recipients but also helps to promote economic activities in those areas from where these goods are purchased. The Ede Pep program targeted towards reaching 50,000 beneficiaries every month so that at least hunger can be killed to some extent about the poor beneficiaries.
