The Danielle Saint Lot Haiti Women’s Foundation’s vision is to fill the ‘missing middle’ and advance women’s economic empowerment. The U.S. based non-profit achieves this through the promotion of social entrepreneurship, leadership skills, and professional development. Additionally, the 501(c)(3) organization advocates for gender equity to advance social and economic rights for women in Haiti. Its signature project, a one-year Haitian Women’s Business Academy, equips small-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to align with global trends and meet demand.
The Danielle Saint Lot Haiti Women’s Foundation, which was launched in March 2015 during Women’s History Month, has a track record of success in rural villages and is playing a leading role in the local recovery response to Hurricane Matthew.
The Foundation has received support from its Board of Directors, Advisory Council, The Raben Group, Small Axe Communications, Vital Voices Global Partnership, Bank of America, Open Society Foundation Haiti / FOKAL, Special Advisor Nedjee Saint-Fleur Mauconduit and many generous friends.
