Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Haiti Projects Goals include the following:
Hire 100 additional workers as part of the Artisanat Embroidery Co-Op
Expand the Women's Health Clinic to reach an additional 10 communities
Build a new Community Library in Fond des Blancs to offer access to literacy classes, computer classes, internet through the cyber cafe and weekly lectures.

Increase our sales of artisanat goods by tapping on-line markets.
Increase the number of grants received
Increase the number of donations received by providing quality information in a timely manner to our supporters through our website, Facebook, and through guidestar reporting

We have a well-trained staff on the ground in Haiti.
We have secure financial backing from the Kellogg Foundation
We have substantial partners including Mahila Partnership, the Kellogg Foundation, The Hershey Foundation, among others.
We have a mission that is achievable.
We have a committed US and Haitian Staff

We have accomplished quite a lot over the last 20 years and we are proud of these successes. With additional funding and support from donors, we will be able to accomplish all of our goals faster. Limited resources, some problems with official documents from the Haitian government are always issues that slow progress. In addition, the high cost of transportation (lack of roads) and the cost of exporting goods from Haiti also slow progress.
