Cover Up Haiti

“Men anpil chay pa lou. / Many hands make the load lighter.” -Haitian proverb

"save lives, feed the hungry, teach life-skills"

In response to the coronavirus crisis, ISA launched COVER UP HAITI, a COVID-19 and hunger prevention project. When started, most Haitians did not have masks to prevent the spread of the virus or enough money to buy food due to extreme shortages. 

COVER UP HAITI was a women’s entrepreneur project. ISA supplied women in local churches with a small financial investment to purchase materials to create medical masks to sell in their local communities. The revenue that they generated was used to feed their families.

Working in collaborative teams, these ladies created and sold 6,000 masks. They tripled their net profit on the initial investment and generated enough income to feed their hungry families for several weeks. In addition, they learned vital financial and entrepreneurial life skills.

Thank you for your generous donations and for making COVER UP HAITI a tremendous success. We learned a lot, and ISA is using this knowledge to develop new women's entrepreneurial projects.
