Since 2010, The Women of Milot Entrepreneurial Network (WOMEN) has worked to create and support individually owned and operated cottage industry businesses for women in Haiti. These businesses allow moms in Haiti to be self-supporting and care for their families.
Each year we host training seminars for a variety of project initiatives throughout Haiti. Those who complete training and become proficient in at least one of our projects are given all of the equipment, tools, supplies, materials and support needed to set up their own business to work from home, thus allowing them to be mothers first, and work to build their businesses as time allows. As her business grows she will naturally begin to hire others from within her community to not only expand the fruits of her own success, but to also allow other to succeed.
For many, this is the first chance at employment, the first time there is enough food to eat, and the first time her children can attend school. Many are able to build a proper home, and the outlook for the future is brighter than most ever 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 pot holders, oven mitts, kitchen towels, tote bags, zip pouches, ornaments and much more - and that you will remember each time you use them that your support directly improved the life of another.
