Commitment by

We Advance

In 2011, the We Advance Empowerment Program, a partnership of We Advance, Yéle Haiti and Man Up, committed to providing the residents of Cité Soleil and Wharf Jeremy information and education tools to prevent gender-based violence. The programs, all led by Haitian community leaders, helped providing education as well as access to services, clinics, and safe houses. The Empowerment Program utilized the ongoing community work, and the successful health clinic of We Advance in Cité Soleil while leveraging the networ. In addition, the community relations of Yéle Haiti, and the technical expertise of Man Up contributed to the program. The courses aimed to serve up to 200 community residents each month during a time period of two years.
