It’s spring, and signs of Haiti’s economic recovery are popping up in surprising ways: handcrafted quilts from Port-au-Prince, papier-mâché vases from Jacmel, and jewelry from Croix des Bouquets — all on store shelves throughout the United States.
More than 350 Haitian families are now able to provide food and afford schooling for their children thanks to the incredible success of our Fairwinds Trading project. This program is enabling a community of Haitian artists to produce market-ready goods for sale in the United States, and it’s been very successful thanks to multiple orders from retailers like Macy’s and Anthropologie.
The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund awarded a loan to Fairwinds Trading in January of this year. Fairwinds Trading supports hundreds of artisans by giving them the logistics support, design guidance, and the US market connections that they need to export their art.
This is one of the many ways in which the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is using your support to promote job growth and economic opportunity in Haiti.
Learn how economic opportunities are changing lives and restoring hope by watching our video about Fairwinds Trading:
“I have only just begun my work for my country,” exclaims one artist, Onel Bazelais.
While these artisans are eager to earn their own livelihoods, they are also proud to contribute to their Ayiti Cheri — dear Haiti. The optimism is contagious and is energizing the whole community.
We must continue to support small businesses as they grow jobs in Haiti.
Watch our video to see how this program is transforming a community:
Our loan reflects our commitment to supporting small and growing businesses and promoting jobs — especially for women. The incredible success continues to show us, every day, why this work is so important.
Thanks for your partnership. L’union fait force — Unity makes strength.
