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.

Refine Haiti Projects’ messaging to highlight our value proposition as a force multiplier helping to create an enabling environment for socioeconomic development in the Fond des Blancs community. We need to incorporate a cohesive strategy to increase our operational and financial sustainability and resiliency while working towards our mission to empower women and their families in rural Haiti by providing access to jobs, healthcare, and education.
