  • Haiti- Since 2012, our sister nonprofit Prosperity Catalyst has been supporting women artisans in Haiti. Together we have traveled all over the country to work with beekeepers, bottle recyclers, metal and stone artisans, and entrepreneurial women to create unique handmade candles. But our love of Haitian people began a decade earlier during trips to support artisans working in every medium, from p apier-mâché in Jacmel to jewelry in Cité Soleil. Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti harder than anywhere else, including  Petit-Goâve where many of our beekeepers live. Every purchase from the Haiti Collection helps families in Petit-Goâveand around Port-au-Prince rebuild, and creates opportunities for Haitian women to thrive. For more information, visit Prosperity Catalyst in Haiti.
