Invest in the Power of People to End Violence Against Women & Girls

Your generous support allows Beyond Borders to train more community activists like Abenson who will use their skills to prevent and end violence against women. Beyond Borders community-based initiative, Rethinking Power, works to address the root causes of this violence—the imbalance in power between women and men in Haitian society. Each day in towns and villages throughout southeastern Haiti, dozens of female and male activists, religious leaders, community leaders, and others work to spark conversation and debate. Through Rethinking Power, we equip people to examine the power relationships in their day to day lives and become activists in the various roles they play as market women, motorcycle- taxi drivers, students, pastors, etc.
