Well then look no further, visit Haiti Projects located at 136 Rantoul Street in Beverly, MA, shop online or visit The Gloucester Bookstore who has been a large supporter of Haiti Projects since the start. Also, find us at any of the Fairs listed below in the Greater Boston area.
Haiti Projects was founded by Annisquam native, Sarah Hackett, in 1994. She wanted to empower the women in the area of Fond des Blancs, Haiti through employment, not a handout. Since then, Haiti Projects has grown to employ up to 100 women, provide a women’s health clinic and library for the area. A whole generation of children have been educated, fed, and clothed because of the extraordinary talents and hard work of their mothers.
Every year, we look for new and exciting designs for our customers. This year, we are announcing leather handbags, made from goat leather. Indigenous to Haiti, these soft and supple bags are the perfect holiday treat for you, or for someone else. Inspired by Haitian designer Prajje Jean Baptiste this design embodies the promise of a new high end Haiti. To see our other products, learn about our other projects and how you can help visit www.haitiprojects.org. Happy Holidays!
