Summary

Endemic problems affecting Haitian communities-including extreme poverty, food insecurity, and gender-based violence-are rapidly worsening because of COVID-19 pandemic. In this context, the HAGN's mentors are playing a critical role in supporting adolescent girls-who are disproportionately impacted by these crises. This project will provide 187 mentors stipends to enable them to continue performing this critical emergency response work with girls and communities in Haiti .

Challenge

Haiti is currently enduring an extraordinary period of compounding political, economic, and public health crises. Endemic problems affecting Haitian communities-including extreme poverty, food insecurity, and gender-based violence-are rapidly worsening because of COVID-19 pandemic and the deepening political crisis, while others-such as the lack of electricity or internet access-are becoming more consequential, as civilians find themselves unable to safely move around and between communities.

Solution

This project will give our platform of about 1500 girls and young women the choice of safety. Each mentor will receive $ 100 per month to enable them to continue performing this critical emergency response work with girls and communities in Haiti and a one-time cash voucher will help them and their families follow social distancing, buy food and purchase medicines in order to diminish their risks against transactional sex closely linked with poor sexual and reproductive health and violence.

Long-Term Impact

The project will give 1500 adolescent girls and young women the tools and resources they need to remain safe, protect their already acquired assets on sexual and reproductive health and financial literacy and gender-based violence, and strengthen their and their families' well-being, while continuing to diminish their risk of falling prey to violence and unwanted pregnancies.
