Before working, only 17% of women could afford to send their children to school. Now 100% of Haiti Projects' employees can and do send their children to school.
Women report an average income increase of over 250% after working for Haiti Projects. This does not include the 32% of workers who were unemployed prior to working for the Women's Cooperative and who increased their income, on average, from 0 to 2150 gourdes per month. Haiti Projects' workers earn, on average, 262% more than the national minimum wage.
The Impact of Haiti Projects' work is not easy to measure. How do you measure the dignity that a job brings, or the joy of watching your child attend school? How do you quantify the opportunity to buy a home, determine how many children you can afford or purchase livestock to raise for added income for your family? The impact is clear and significant.
