Hope for a Better Life in Haiti
We at Indigo are pleased to support Fonkoze, a three year old organization devoted to promoting development from the grassroots up in Haiti. At a time when so much of the news from Haiti is discouraging, Fonkoze is making solid progress in improving the lives of many Haitians. Fonkoze provides support to farmers, Ti Machann street vendors and small entrepreneurs with micro-credit loans, secure local banking, training in literacy and business skills and other programs.
"Here at Fonkoze, we believe that economic democracy can be an avenue to true political democracy, especially when development comes from the base, and encompasses broad grassroots participation." Father Joseph Phillippe - Coordinator, Fonkoze
