"Our time is now-our rights, our future"
We are now in the season known as a time for gratitude, activism, and giving.
November 24-Thanksgiving. It traditionally began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
November 25-International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The 16 days between November 25th and December 10th (Human Rights Day) are known as the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence which is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The slogan used is “Orange the World.” Orange symbolizes a brighter future free of violence.
November 29-#GivingTuesday. It is the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It is touted as a "global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world." It is known as a Global Day of Giving.
You have stood strong and unwavering in your support of bringing Haitian midwives opportunities that assist them in being the changemakers who lead progress in their communities. Thanks to you, Haitian midwives have the capacity to provide health equity: equal access, care, and health outcomes for all no matter economic, social, or environmental disadvantage. Equal access to quality healthcare is a basic human right.
Your support enables us to stand accountable by our joint investment in a future that believes in their agency, leadership and potential. Your help provides:
- continuing education to seasoned midwives & education to midwifery students
- midwives the ability to provide trauma informed gender-based violence care as well as be advocates for change
- multiple youth groups with education on sexual and reproductive health
- community education and outreach, both in Haiti and the diaspora
In times of natural disaster, pandemics, economic and social unrest…together we answer the call. Gender based violence and sexual and reproductive health care is always a constant.
Let’s continue our call to action! Let's keep our programs running. Help spread the word. Contributions of all sizes make a difference, as a one-time donation or as a monthly donor.
On November 29, Giving Tuesday, from 12 midnight to 11:59 pm EST, GlobalGiving will giveaway $1.2 million to nonprofits around the world as part of their #MoveAMillion campaign for GivingTuesday. Your donation will help us unlock a greater share of those bonus funds! DONATE TODAY & SPREAD THE WORD.
Thank you for your support.
