Beautifully Handmade

The Women of Milot Entrepreneurial Network (WOMEN) creates and supports individually owned cottage industry businesses for women in Haiti that allow them to be self-supporting and care for their families.  Each year we host training seminars for a variety of project initiatives for more than 100 women.  Those who complete training are given all of the equipment, tools, supplies and materials needed to set up their own business and work from home, thus allowing them to be mothers first, and work as time allows.  As her business grows she is able to hire others from within her community and expand the fruits of her own success.  

For many, this is the first chance at employment, the first time there is enough food to eat, and the first time her children attend school.   Many are able to build a proper home and the outlook for the future is brighter than most thought possible.  Your purchase directly helps women and children in Haiti live a better life.  100% of all sales revenue are sent back to Haiti to pay our artisans and purchase more materials.   0% is used to pay U.S. salaries or administrative fees.  

We hope you enjoy our colorful potholders, oven mitts, kitchen towels, totes bags, zip pouches and much more - and that you will remember each time you use them that your support directly improved the life of another.

An old Haitian Proverb says, "when women dish out the food, everyone eats".



Each year The Women of Milot Entrepreneurial Network provides a broad rage of specialized training classes for more than 150 women in northern Haiti.  

Participants learn how to use their talent for making colorful hand-sewn and embroidered designs to create more modern styles that appeal to today's buyers.
