Description

Write to Be supports the Fi Ki Fὸ program ("Strong Girl" in Haitian Creole) in collaboration with Consolation Center Haiti (CCH) in Les Cayes, a nonprofit that provides medical care, education, housing, meals, and clothing for girls and boys in southern Haiti. In 2020, over 20 11-year old girls will participate in a series of activities led by Haitian women focused on self-identity, healthy relationships, professional life, and society. These activities, part of a curriculum developed by U.S. and Haitian educators, are accompanied by vocational skill training classes along with mentorship opportunities. Believing strongly in the importance of developing female leaders and recognizing the barriers young women face during the transition to adulthood, Write to Be also oversees the Famn Ki Fὸ ("Strong Woman") Fund, which provides scholarships for Fi Ki Fὸ alumnae for ongoing education and professional development opportunities as well as emergency funding.
