“Men anpil chay pa lou. / Many hands make the load lighter.” -Haitian proverb
According to the United Nations, “when more women work, economies grow. An increase in female labor force participation . . . results in faster economic growth. Evidence from a range of countries shows that increasing the share of household income controlled by women . . . changes spending in ways that benefit children” (http://www.unwomen.org/). Women have tremendous potential to change their own economic status. In Haiti, many women have the overwhelming responsibility of being the sole means of support for themselves and their families.
