Since 1996, H.O.P.E. has worked in the northern Haitian commune of Borgne to meet community needs for healthcare, clean water, economic development and education. Over the years, work has expanded, and today, in partnership with Haiti’s Ministry of Health and others, H.O.P.E.’s hospital and network of mobile clinics provide the only care available to some 80,000 people across a 100-mile area in northern Haiti.
Our Work Together
WomenStrong has helped create the first operating room in northern Haiti capable of safely delivering babies by cesarean section. Mobile and regular clinics for women offer screenings, pre- and post-natal care and family planning, and Mothers’ and Girls’ Clubs reach well over 1,000 families with information on nutrition, hygiene, literacy, financial literacy, job skills and gender-based violence. H.O.P.E., like all WomenStrong Consortium members, values the voices of women and listens to learn what is required to build better lives. Poor women and girls know what they need, and when their 6 Essential Needs are met, they become powerful forces leading their communities out of extreme poverty.
