Over the weekend, Karen Civil, was honored at the Fonkoze 2nd annual “Hot Night in Haiti” Fundraiser which was hosted by Sanaa Lathan. Fonkoze is an organization that was created over 22 years ago to bring financial inclusion and development services to Haiti’s poor – providing them a viable way to lift themselves out of poverty.
Offering both financial and development services, Fonkoze’s Staircase Out of Poverty provides a comprehensive approach to poverty alleviation in Haiti. Each of its four Steps is uniquely designed to provide a woman with the resources and support that she needs to ascend from poverty, wherever she is in her climb. Along with the four main Steps, Fonkoze’s Staircase includes “Handrails”—programs that provide our members and clients with business skills training, education, and health services to support them as they progress. Our accompaniment is designed to help women succeed as they do the hard work required to climb the Staircase, creating a better future for themselves and their families.
