Meet Michelle - a Haiti Projects Artisan

By Taryn Lorthe | Interim Executive Director

Thanks to your support we are able to continue providing jobs for 100 women in rural Haiti, including Michelle. Michelle has been working in Haiti Projects' Artisanat since 1996. When she first started her income helped her to pay to go back to school and to help her parents financially.

Today, Michelle is a mother of three young children. She works hard to ensure that her children have access to educational opportunities that she did not have as a young child. She loves the work environment at the artisanat. "It is a place I look forward to going to each day to work alongside the other women in my community. The artisanat is a place where I can escape the daily stress of life and keep my mind busy," says Michelle. 

Some of our artisans, like Michelle, are piece workers, meaning they make money based on the number of products we sell. The more work that Michelle and the women have the more money they are able to make. Your donations go directly to help us offset our costs and support Michelle and the other artisans.

We are continuing to grow our artisanat cooperative's brand, Maison d'Haiti, by looking for new wholesale customers and increasing our marketing activities. After completeing a cost analysis of our products we have had to increase our prices due to global inflation so that we can continue to provide fair trade wages to our artisans. 

Your support is essential to this project and we could not do this without you. Another way you can support our artisans is by purchasing one of their handcrafted products from our store - Maison d'Haiti.
