Haiti 2012: A Stronger Role for Women
Aug 15, 2012
The Global Ambassadors program, in partnership with Vital Voices, is designed to bring leaders together to find new ways to energize and empower emerging women leaders. As Haiti works to rebuild from the 2010 earthquake, the role of women has never been more important.
In March 2012, women from the Global Ambassadors Program convened in Port-au-Prince to develop a strategy to strengthen the role of women in Haitian communities. The new platform included proposals that would provide more economic and educational opportunities for women, improve access to health care, and increase women’s political involvement in helping build a stronger future for Haiti.
