Skyler Badenoch:

Skyler Badenoch is the chief executive officer of Hope for Haiti, an organization that works to improve the quality of life for the Haitian people, particularly children. Hope for Haiti currently serves thousands of children, parents, and grandparents in Southern Haiti through direct investments in education, healthcare, water, infrastructure, and the economy.  

Badenoch joined Hope for Haiti in 2017, and has been a supporter since 2008.  Under his leadership, the organization hopes to double the number of children it reaches through its programming. With cash resources just under $5 million in 2016, Badenoch’s signature issues at Hope for Haiti will include education and learning outcomes, infrastructure development, social business investment, expansion of a clean water portfolio and monitoring and evaluation.

Prior to joining Hope for Haiti, Badenoch worked for buildOn, where he spent 10 years managing participatory school construction programs in Haiti, Nicaragua, and Malawi. During that time, he helped raise more than $10 million to support global education and the construction of more than 500 schools in rural villages in the developing world. Badenoch now serves as a global board member at buildOn, where he advises senior leadership on key partnerships and development.  

Badenoch was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cote d’Ivoire, and he received an undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Arizona, and a master’s degree in international development studies at the George Washington University. He currently resides in Scottsdale with his wife Sahar and his two daughters, Lillian and Layla.
