Women and children often face different social and economic challenges. Low incomes lead to difficult living conditions.
In a male-dominated society like Haiti, women are offered the opportunity to become more independent and independent. Several income generating projects have been created. A short term professional training gives the women a piece of independence and self-esteem. The aim of this program is to train Haitian women and make them aware of their human rights in particular. Through an outreach program, women receive professional training in sewing, computer training, pastry, IT techmology, information about creating opportunities to, for example, develop leadership qualities.
Our eighth promotion with 80 women will graduate on July 22 in Leogane. You are then invited to join us in Haiti for this event.
You will be confronted with poverty and the challenges that the poorest inhabitants of this area face daily in Haiti.

Get Involved

You can donate equipments and materials ( desktops, laptops, sewing machines, baking equipment and utensils to help us to run our professional schools in Leogane or you can travel to Haiti to train the women.
