Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, with a literacy rate hovering at 50% and a minimum wage of 22 cents an hour. Employment is scarce, particularly in rural areas, where families lack access to capital and sustainable income. After the earthquake, the need for employment is even more acute. To rebuild Haiti, the country needs jobs, not handouts, to ensure each family has the resources it needs to access food, education, and health care.


Haiti Projects provides jobs to women, including young women, in need in rural Fond des Blancs, Haiti. Haiti Projects helps raise the incomes of over 100 women, increasing their salaries an average of 250% and allowing them to afford basic necessities like food, health care, and schooling.

Long-Term Impact

By providing jobs, we create capital for women to invest in their families and communities. For example, before employment at Haiti Projects only 17% of women could afford to send their children to school -- now, after employment, 100% do.
