Women around the world face tremendous hardships, especially in poor countries like Haiti due to many social and economic factors. Gender inequality and lack of access to a quality education is a huge impediment in their upliftment and growth.
The divide is evident right from classrooms, workplaces, and homes which clearly shows that women have fewer opportunities to shape their lives and gain personal and financial independence. Women in rural and semi-urban communities are the most impacted.
They are often forced into early marriages or discontinue education cutting off a lucrative channel of gainful employment. They also bear the brunt of domestic abuse and rearing children way too early in life. Our Women’s empowerment volunteer programs in Haiti are a proven way to enrich their lives and propel social change.
Our women’s empowerment volunteer programs aim to help women achieve a level of independence, opportunity to learn and live a dignified life equal to men in society. On the volunteer program we focus on skill building, women’s education,and income generation.
Through the skills they learn, women will develop confidence, a new identity, and ability to get jobs or earn higher income, and secure a better future for themselves.
Our women’s empowerment programs contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal that aims to reduce poverty and gender inequalities while increasing the quality of education and economic growth. You can join us in Haiti.

Even the most basic medical and educational needs are difficult to meet for these children and adults suffering from physical and mental disabilities. It is especially challenging in developing countries where resources are already scarce and if they are in low income families.
Disabled facilities in Haiti provide food, accommodation, and basic medical and educational facilities. The sad reality is that these facilities are grossly underfunded and the allocated funds and perks often never make it to the needy. Most importantly those with special needs miss the love and compassion they most crave above all else Special needs and mental health Volunteering is an emotional and life-altering experience. Mental and Physical disabilities in these individuals can range from mild to severe and a bit of extra attention and mentoring can make a significant difference to their education and lives.
