Country: Haiti
Partner: Haitian American Caucus

The Haitian American Caucus (HAC) advances opportunity and improves the quality of life for the people of Haiti by strengthening the capacity of communities through education and comprehensive community development.

 

HAC offers low cost primary education for children, literacy courses for adults and economic empowerment through micro-financing and micro-enterprise.

 

Our partnership helps provide real economic impact for HAC clients through establishing small businesses (micro-enterprise) selling new and gently used shoes and clothing as a means to generate a sustainable income.

 

Through our partnership with Haitian American Caucus, we are able to provide jobs for close to 400 women through the micro-enterprise program.
