Empowering Haitians

This Campaign is specifically to help us invest in jobs on the ground and monthly expenses for the farmers, artisans, educators and administrators on our Haitian teams. These passionate and committed women and men invest every day creating new opportunities in their personal families and their communities. $12,000 a month allows our teams to impact the citizens of the greater Les Cayes to Port Salut Southern Regions as well as areas of Port au Prince. Thank you for considering a monthly investment into our vision of every child and family safe, educated and thriving.....through preventing trafficking, poverty and abuse.

Our Impact

Our research has demonstrated that the majority of the Haitian population haven't been educated in reproductive health and human development. Over half the students we teach did not know how pregnancy occurs prior to attending their first LETS class. 
  • 61% have not learned about the female reproductive system.
  • 62% have not learned about the male reproductive system. 
Lack of education throughout Haiti has resulted in unplanned pregnancies en masse and an estimated 400,000 plus children becoming restaveks (child slaves). The earthquake in 2010 which devastated the population also resulted in a large number of orphaned children who became homeless and many have been trafficked. 

Teaching in a Haiti community

What LETS is doing in Haiti

LETS has been in Haiti for over five years and has an active team of Haitian instructors who are teaching the LETS Training Program to communities across Haiti. We train instructors and collaborate with organizations, schools, medical clinics, churches and NGO's. We teach a series of six lessons covering reproductive health, healthy habits for the body, mind, spirit and environment. We use the LETS Bracelet and calendars to help women and their companions to track their menstrual cycle including their most fertile phase.

We follow up with our students approximately 3 months and again one year after their training has been completed. We have a learning center for additional follow up as needed. Our survey results show: 
  • 98% of our female students have not become pregnant while using the LETS bracelets and implementing the LETS training if their intention was not to become pregnant.
  • 82% said of the female students said that this was the first time they've learned about their menstrual cycle. 
  • 94% of the female students are continuing to use the LETS bracelet to not become pregnant. 
Your donations will support our instructors to reach more communities which results in confident individuals having excellent life tools. We instill much more than reproductive and well being knowledge- we expand purpose and hope.
Helping youth understand their menstrual cycle via the LETS Training Program and the LETS Bracelets

Your donations will also support the jobs of our farmers who grow the majok seeds that are used in LETS bracelets and our dedicated artisans who create the bracelets.

Every class is filled with women who realize, for the first time, that they have the power to decide whether or not they wish to become pregnant. We also see the men comprehend how they can support their women and build a brighter future together. We see youth making informed choices and parents having the tools to guide their children through puberty and beyond.

We can't wait to update you on how your support is transforming lives.
