EMPOWERING THE HAITIAN PEOPLE
Economic Stimulus Projects for Work and Action (ESPWA) is a Haitian‐led nonprofit organization registered in the United States as a 501 (c) (3) and in Haiti. Launched in January 2010 at the aftermath of the January 12, 2010 earthquake, we work on building the long‐term capacity of Haitian organizations and Haiti. We are indeed a bridge‐builder with a Haitian-led leadership network with members in both Haiti and the US.
ESPWA focuses on transformational, systemic, sustainable and impactful change that is anchored by local leadership and molded by local communities. Our belief is that:
- Building sustainable solutions to structural socio-economic problems takes more than program delivery capacity building – it requires that we connect with stakeholders in a meaningful manner to transform our development context into an aligned and effective ecosystem of actors and initiatives.
- When we bridge boundaries and work with others, we achieve greater levels of change than we could alone.
- Passion, determination, creativity and an inclusive vision can make the impossible possible. Click to read more.
