Charting impact

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

Goal 1 - Provide access to low or no cost quality healthcare and prescription medicines - The Germain community in Haiti has a population of approximately 10,000 residents. There is only 1 other clinic and pharmacy for the community in the area, and they are both for-profit enterprises. We serve approximately 5,000 residents/patients annually, with each patient receiving on average 6 prescriptions each. Improve overall health of the population, especially in the areas of hypertension, diabetes, and gastrointestinal issues.

Goal 2 - Access to low or no cost clean drinking water and personal hygiene. We provide access to 300 gallons of clean drinking water each day, or 109,500 gallons per year. This water is used for drinking, cooking, and brushing teeth. Access to clean drinking water reduces illness.

Goal 3 - Access to low or no cost food.

Goal 4 - Education & trade skills training is the key to changing the future of Haiti

Goal 5 - Small business development via micro-loans.

Strategy 1 Empowering - Select educated Haitian leaders for employment and training within the organization

Strategy 2 Sustainability - Establish programs and services that are self-sustaining and that do not require constant cash influx from donors.

Strategy 3 Quality - Ensure that quality is the catch word for everything that the organization does.

Capability 1 - Recruited board members from both Haiti and the United States.

Capability 2 - Established consistent and sustainable donor funding.

Capability 3 - Hired a Haitian RN and Haitian MD to manage the medical clinic and treat the patients.

Capability 4 - Hired an experienced Executive Director to lead the organization on the ground in Haiti.

Capability 5 - Hired an experienced bookkeeper to record and manage all funds.

Current accomplishments:

1. Construction of clean water facility that provided 109,500 gallons of clean water annually.
2. Operation of a medical clinic that provides healthcare to over 5,000 patients and provides over 30,000 prescriptions annually.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
