The mission of Haiti Projects is to empower women in rural Haiti to achieve self-sufficiency and build community.
Haiti Projects is committed to providing economic opportunities for women in the rural region of Fond des Blancs, Haiti through its Artisanat Cooperative where women use their embroidery skills to create beautiful heirloom quality home goods. As part of its commitment to building a sustainable community, Haiti Projects established a community library and education center that has become the cultural hub for the region.Haiti Project currently supports both the library and the education center. Haiti Projects also supports and oversees the Women's Health Clinic which has a mobile unit that travels to 20 rural villages in the mountains.
