Choose Hope!

Reject despair. Stand with Haiti.

We all feel despair sometimes.

Enslaved as a child, Louisemène fought despair and learned that hope is not a circumstance but a choice – one that gave her strength to survive.

In 2021, Beyond Borders brought the hope of staff and supporters – and proven expertise that equips local leaders to overcome poverty and prevent violence – to Louisemène’s rural community.

Today – even as insecurity and chaos escalates in Port-au-Prince – life in Louisemène’s community is transformed and she has become a leader in the movement to protect children from exploitation and abuse.

We believe that hope for all of Haiti lies in the development of more grassroots leaders like Louisemène.

When you choose hope, your gift will:

Empower more families to permanently escape extreme poverty

Free more children and dismantle systems that exploit them


Organize more communities to stop violence against women and girls
