Concern has 40 years’ experience in the fight against poverty. It focuses on the areas of education, emergencies and health, and livelihoods. During the emergency phase of the earthquake, the Digicel Foundation supported Concern’s response by funding the construction of temporary housing and distribution of tents to more than 90,000 IDPs. More importantly, 400 families in Saut D’Eau benefit from the “Chemin Lavi Miyo” program which is a livelihoods program for the most vulnerable women-led households to put them on the journey out of poverty and hunger. Each woman receives training (literacy, financial literacy, business skills) and a case worker to manage 2 income generating activities, receiving micro loans to manage their small businesses. Along with the basic education and business skills training, 150 of the most vulnerable families are provided access to health services.
