Mission

We fight extreme poverty in Haiti through helping to create sustainable employment in a variety of fields. We measure our progress in terms of jobs created and the sustainability of those jobs and the enterprise which generates them.

Programs

We have two main programs at present; First we have women's cooperatives which make knitted and embroidered products for the US market. We market the products in the US and all sales proceeds are poured back into the program to increase employment and/or pay rates. Second, we operate two construction block making operations which are beginning to provide high quality earth and concrete blocks to the construction trade in Haiti. We are close to launching a third program - a water resources company which will design and install potable water systems at schools, small villages, hospitals, etc.
