Moms living in rural Haiti struggle to survive and provide for their children. With incomes of less than $1/day, devastatingly difficult choices are made. This includes choosing between food & diapers, a choice with devastating consequences. This microproject will provide Moms with a complete supply of cloth diapers, to last from birth to potty training. All babies deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy.
All babies deserve clean diapers. This project will provide 100% diaper coverage, which not only provides an increase in comfort but improvement in basic health and sanitation for both baby and mother.
Diapers will improve sanitation, hygiene and health through containment of feces. That's not all. Imagine the impact on for caregivers! No more wet laps. No more cleaning up feces off the floor. Less laundry! (less sheets to wash!).
As our partner organizations in Haiti continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Empowering Mothers In Haiti. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
