After the earthquake on January 12, 2010, the Haitian feminist movement was weakened because of the loss of many of its leaders. The funding for women’s/feminist civil society organizations, which had grown in the post-emergency context, has also significantly dropped in recent years. Women’s organizations are therefore facing major financial and organizational challenges that affect their work for advancing the rights of women and girls and equality between women and men in Haiti. The “Pou Fanm Pi Djanm” project aims to address the challenges faced by women’s civil society organizations by supporting them for strengthening their technical and financial capacities.

The project’s objective is to strengthen the capacity and activities of women’s organizations, networks and movement in Haiti to enable women and girls to better exercise their rights and advance equality between women and men. The project supports more than 30 women’s civil society organizations working for women’s and girls’ rights, including 6 national organizations and 24 local women’s organizations. That support will enable them to strengthen their organizational structure, be more financially independent, provide better-quality services to a larger share of the population, mainly women and girls, and engage in constructive dialogue with state authorities for improving the judicial and legal environment for better protection of women’s rights.

Results & Indicators

Expected Results

Improved management and viability of local women’s organizations in Haiti, especially organizations representing vulnerable and marginalized women and girls. To achieve this result, the project plans to work with 30 female/feminist CSOs for carrying out their supported self-diagnosis and identify actions that can strengthen them through a capacity-building plan that will be partially or fully funded by WVL.

Improvement in the programs and the delivery of quality services of local women’s organizations for advancing gender equality in Haiti. Based on the needs identified in their capacity-building plans, the local women’s organizations will receive technical and financial support from WVL to strengthen the services they provide and their internal programs.
