FC: The Handbag Project: HaitiCorps International

1: In November 2011, HaitiCorps International launched The Handbag Project in collaboration with handbag designer Ann Heckathorn and in partnership with Fanm Viktim Leve Kanpe (FAVILEK/Women Victims, Get Up Stand Up). For more than twenty years, FAVILEK has supported and advocated for Haitian women who have been victims of gender-based violence. HaitiCorps International is privileged to join FAVILEK's efforts to honor these women's dignity, celebrate their talents and gifts, and build their capacity to provide for themselves and their families. Through The Handbag Project, the women artisans of FAVILEK will earn a living wage, express their creative vision, and be empowered to work toward a brighter future. The pages of this photo book capture moments of hard work and hope as seen through the eyes of HaitiCorps International president Brent Gibson. May you be inspired by these images to join HaitiCorps International in imagining Haiti anew. © 2011. HaitiCorps International
