Mission Statement

The mission of Haiti Projects is to empower women in rural Haiti to lift themselves out of poverty, become self-sufficient and build community.

Description

In 1996, in the remote region of Fond des Blancs, Haiti Projects established the Artisanat Cooperative to bring the embroidery skills of local women to a global market. Through this Cooperative Haiti Projects provides economic opportunity to a rural area in dire need of income and employment. Today, the Cooperative employs 100 women who use their skills to produce heirloom-quality handmade nightgowns, house linens, and holiday and gift items using 100% cotton and pure linen. In addition to the Cooperative, Haiti Projects provides supporting services that include a women’s health clinic, a community library and regional learning center with public access to technology.
