Will you help us catalyze change for women in Haiti? Every donation helps!
What is the goal of Prosperity Catalyst?
After three years of building Prosperity Candle, we have launched the non-profit, Prosperity Catalyst. Our mission: incubating prosperity with training, support, and inspiring women entrepreneurs to grow. Today, under our Executive Director Siiri Morley's leadership, we are raising funds to grow our work into Haiti.
Why focus on Haiti?
Haiti is a country with horrible statistics. 80% of the population is living in poverty. The unemployment rate is at 40.6%. 90% of women in Haiti have experienced some kind of violence and 1/3 of girls over 6 never go to school. This is the bad news.
The good news is that there are solutions to these problems. There are resources available, including amazing grassroots organizations, hard-working women ready to create change, and markets that are interested in high quality Haitian products. Prosperity Catalyst is designed to be a matchmaker between these organizations to help make economic empowerment effective and sustainable.
We have received funding from UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) but we still have a funding gap to make our work a success in Haiti. We are so close!
How does my donation help Prosperity Catalyst?
Donations of any amount will help us train women in work readiness and candle-making. Your contributions will us launch a women-led business, invest in candle equipment, build partnerships, and, most importantly, build a team with the skills and passion to make this all happen.
Please join us as we catalyze change for women in Haiti - and beyond!
