Challenge

HRI works in Haiti and Guatemala in regions where there is very little to no clean water, no room to properly social distance, very little education on COVID, and where people depend on their daily labor jobs to put food on their tables. People in these conditions are not only most at risk of getting COVID, but they are also most at risk at spreading it and also dying from it. The people need education, sanitation, income generation and mental health care as we all walk through this pandemic.

Solution

HRI's COVID prevention and education programs all work together to provide education, sanitation, income generation and mental health care. But they also give people the education and resources they need to launch new businesses which will last long after COVID is under control.

Long-Term Impact

HRI's projects train people with new skills that will last far beyond the current crisis. The trainings we provide for mask making, hand washing stations, detergent and disinfectant production and more are all things that will continue to be a source of income generation for the women we train. The seeds for farmers is a project that will ensure farming families have food for their tables and to sell for income over the next 6-12 months. Reading and clubs project for youth will continue as well.
