Haiti Women

Our Mission

To help young Haitian women develop character, social skills, spiritual gifts, and practical abilities that equip them for life and ministry.

Spiritual & Social Development

We provide courses in Bible and Christian living - encouraging the students to develop a strong spiritual foundation. Our staff and teachers develop mentoring relationships with the students, production workers, and each other. A daily devotional time helps the Centre maintain an active role in the spiritual wellbeing of all personnel.

Leadership Training

Students are trained in hospitality, child development, teaching, and serving. With these capacities they can be a tremendous asset to their churches, schools, and communities.

Economic Independence

Students and graduates of The Centre can participate in the production of our line of handcrafted products as a way to pay for their education and provide an income for their families. They are creating sustainability for their own lives, and bringing economic growth to their communities.

Life Skills

We offer courses in embroidery, crotchet, sewing, cooking, baking, etiquette, health, domestic economics, and other subjects that enhance women’s ability to effectively care for their children and families. Additional courses in computers and English enable them to take advantage of new job opportunities that are coming to Haiti.
