“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”
Over the years, our teaching program has evolved and improved. We have designed the curriculum around international care standards, have had several texts translated into Haitian Creole, and strive to work closely with the local community to ensure our education model is culturally appropriate and comprehensive. As a result, we are well-known and respected in the community.
Thanks to a strong group of dedicated volunteers, a growing number of supporters, new partnerships and grants, we have trained and graduated eight classes of midwifery students. These 125 skilled birth attendants work in nearly every geographic region in Haiti, providing care to thousands of women and their families each year.
Our achievements and progress are a testament to the willingness and commitment of Haitian men and women to improve the health of their country, and by the help of our generous supporters.
