We empower women and uplift children in Haiti 

Our Vision

We envision an equitable Haiti where equal opportunities are accessible to all. Our mission is to enhance the lives of marginalized groups through economic mobility, education, civic engagement, and self-empowerment. Recognizing historical and current inequalities, we prioritize the empowerment of women, girls, children, and youth, as poverty often affects them disproportionately.


Women's Economic Empowerment

Thanks to the support of our donors, we proudly launched the Women’s Small Business Initiative, empowering 50 women with training and 23 with funding to start or expand their businesses. Over 200 women have received training in making detergents, soaps, perfumes, and handicrafts, equipping them with valuable skills for income generation. Collaborating with our partners, we trained 153 farmers and distributed livelihood assets to women.


Women's Goat Project

The Women’s Goat Project (WGP) is “micro-lending” specific to rural areas. Goats are used as currency instead of cash. Participants pay back in goat progeny, not cash. Each participant is ‘loaned’ 3 goats and must return 2 goats to a new participant. Goats can be sold but a brood of 2 goats are kept for breeding and income generation. Last year we provided 90 goats to women. The goat project is helping increase family income and involvement in village savings and loans associations.


Children and Youth

We are dedicated to education and the development of children and youth. We help with tuition and provide essential academic support such as math and reading tutoring in Sodo and Port-au-Prince. In 2023, we taught 100 children English and successfully launched our first English summer camp which was attended by 70 enthusiastic kids.

We're partnered with Global Giving

Our approach was to listen to the community, study what has been done, what has worked, what has failed, and understand why. Then, we initiated a child-focused and gender-centered program to increase access to education and alleviate poverty.
