Fulcrum supports Haiti Babi, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing jobs to moms in Haiti so they can earn a sustainable living wage, provide for their children, and keep their families together. Haiti Babi is about moms helping moms for the long term, and purchasing a Haiti Babi product empowers a mom in Haiti to care for her children and keep them out of orphanages.
Jobs are hard to come by in Haiti, and it’s the little ones who suffer most. One in ten kids live in an orphanage, and 80% of them have living parents who simply cannot afford to care for them due to widespread unemployment. When you give a woman a job she invests in her family and the local economy, decreasing the need for traditional aid. A Haiti Babi mom earns more than twice the minimum wage, which allows her to cover her family’s basic needs and gives her the opportunity to save for the future. Haiti Babi’s economic multiplier is more than six, which means that one job at Haiti Babi helps to create six additional jobs in Haiti.
