The Haiti Projects Women’s Cooperative is at the heart of Haiti Projects, Inc. Started in 1994, the cooperative began when founder Sarah Hackett was impressed by the embroidery skills of the local women but found that they lacked the simplest of supplies to work. By providing them a needle and thread, Sarah realized that she could provide the women not only tools for embroidery, but also the means to make a living in an area where employment is scarce.
18 years later the Haiti Projects Women’s Cooperative now employs nearly 100 women who make beautiful handcrafted embroidered and knit projects that are sold online and in stores and at events in Haiti and the U.S. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these items goes directly toward supporting the Haiti Projects artisans, providing them with life-saving income.
