Review for Haiti Projects Inc, Hanover, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

HPI has successfully lifted at least 75 families out of abject poverty by establishing a women' sewing cooperative. The proceeds from marketing their exquisite embroidered goods goes back directly to these women so that they can not only support their families but also send their children to school. The cooperative, community library, micro-lending program, educational scholarships, and family planning clinic has put Fond des Blancs on the road to sustainability and prosperity. Our main concern, as with most 501C3s, is financial stability. We need to do some serious fundraising through grant writing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

lifting 75 families out of abject poverty.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning about the skills and resilience of these Haitians in rural Haiti. They have a real sense of pride and a work ethic.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to lift the Haitian population out of poverty by teaching them skills. The model of HPI would be able to replicate itself in other rural villages. Every child would be guaranteed an education. We could afford to build a library computer center.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
