I am grateful for the generous support of so many people like you who are committed to the movement to prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG) and balance power between women and men in Haiti.

We’re seeing a real decline in VAWG — thanks to you and people like you who are making the work of grassroots leaders like Jesula possible.

You can see photos of Jesula and her fellow activists at work and read about the drop in VAWG in our latest Donor Report.

If you have any questions about what you read, please call or write me anytime. I’d welcome the opportunity to talk with you!

With deep gratitude,
