Not being able to see can be debilitating, especially in a poor country like Haiti. Restoring vision is the prime priority for the Cap Haitien Eye Center, as its staff strive to offer quality care for more than one million people in northern Haiti. The eye center is committed to helping restore the gift of sight to children and adults, giving them a second chance in life.
For many parents in Haiti today, education is the only safe way to give their children the chance to get out of poverty. But jobs are hard to come by, so it can be hard to provide even basics like food and medication, much less tuition and school supplies.
Through micro-loans and training, this project will enable women in Haiti to open small businesses so that they can support their families.
The Women’s Association of Haiti has broad-based ministries to impoverished communities, taking a holistic approach to improve all areas of life.
$11,000 a year for five years (2014 to 2019) will provide training materials, travel and stipends to train emerging peacemaking leaders.
