Community-Led Health Program Empowers Rural Families
Fonkoze empowers Haitians, primarily rural women, to lift their families out of poverty by providing access to the tools, resources, and support needed to overcome and thrive. The organization’s approach to empowerment is holistic - addressing the many systemic roots of poverty: lack of access to education, financial and health services, and more.
Fonkoze’s health program Boutik Sante, in particular, serves approximately 250,000 households each year, offering health resources to communities throughout Haiti that include vitamin distribution, screenings for child malnutrition and therapeutic feeding treatments, hypertension screenings for cardiovascular disease, and preventative healthcare trainings. This program alone, which won the 2021 European Microfinance Award, has increased access to health services and education for more than 3.3 million people since its inception in 2014.
