Description and results


This project aims to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls by supporting local organizations that advance women’s rights in Haiti. It is building the capacity of local women’s rights organizations to provide services to their constituents; help women to know and claim their rights; advocate for gender equality; and empower women and girls. The project reflects growing international evidence of the critical role that local women’s rights and feminist organizations play in advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Project activities include the provision of: (1) multi-year funding to selected local women’s rights organizations; (2) targeted capacity building to organizations selected for multi-year funding; (3) support to strengthen networks and alliances between women’s rights organizations; and (4) small, short-term funding to local women’s rights organizations and networks to pilot innovative ideas and approaches, and to respond quickly to unforeseen events and opportunities. This project aims to enable women's organizations in Haiti to improve the management of their programs, increase the quality of services offered and work to restore strong support networks that is expected to directly benefit more than 3,000 women and girls, and indirectly to more than 130,000 women and girls.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved management, programming and sustainability of local women’s rights organizations in Haiti, particularly those representing vulnerable and marginalized women and girls; (2) enhanced delivery of services and advocacy by women’s rights organizations to advance gender equality in Haiti; and (3) increased effectiveness of national and sub-national women’s rights platforms, networks and alliances to affect gender-sensitive policy change and policy implementation in Haiti.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2021: (1) the pre-selection of 11 partner organizations; (2) improvement of the financial and organizational sustainability of 17 partner organizations; (3) training, workshops and advocacy activities allowed 26 410 people (including 23 083 women) to have a better understanding of gender equality, women’s right et gender-based violence; (4) Distribution of 2465 hygienic kits and 5265 masks to limit the risk of COVID-19 spreading to communities in which the activities of the project take place; (5) Support more than 30 women’s rights defence organizations via fast and responsive funds allowing them to carry out activities promoting women and girls rights in Haiti.
