It’s Always Mother’s Day!

We are committed to Girls’ development

Despite the challenges of safe transportation HWC’s dedicated Program Coordinator and the wonderful team from Fondasyon Toya made it to HWC member organization Community2Community in Petit-Goave from Port au Prince. With 3 days of amplifying the importance of sisterhood, self confidence with a focus on leadership- it was a great success. The purpose of the Girls Opportunity Alliance program is to support a total of 20 girls in the North and South of Haiti to complete high school and get ready for university. The program will enter its second year in September. Congratulations to the entire team! 

HWC will enter a strategic planning process this year to launch a separate entity in 2025, “A Fund for Haitian Women”.  We are fortunate to have the initial seed funding support from our long time supporter MADRE and just recently The New York Women’s Foundation. Stay tuned for more as we take on this new challenge.

Policy Corner

As our beloved, Haiti continues to suffer, we continue to support Haitian women led organizations throughout Haiti, that continue to work and provide services despite the challenges. The crisis of increased violence against women and girls continues and together with our partners we remain committed to help in any way we can albeit almost impossible with limited fuel access, increased food insecurity and overwhelming humanitarian needs.  

Over the past 2 years, we have participated in several policy activities and as a member of the Haiti Advocacy Workgroup (HAWG) will continue to advocate as best we can.
