We see from 2016 to 2023 many women and girls are victims of violence. This is why we always refer them to the departments concerned. To reduce this scourge, we plan to raise their awareness, train them, inform them and supervise them. To carry out our mission and our vision, we immediately need a shelter, office equipment, because the one we had before was burned down by gangs; rolling stock to visit our members and circulate in the communes.

Important dates in our calendar

Here are important dates for women and girls.


  • April 4th: Movement of Haitian Women.

  • May 28th: Day dedicated to Women's Health.

  • October 15th: National Day of Rural Women.

  • November 25th: International Day Against Violence to Women


There are also other dates that we also create activities such as:
