Activities is this area include; campaigning against violence against women and HIV, challenging structural barriers to girls in education, gender training for community based organizations, activities promoting women’s access to and control over productive resources, economic initiatives targeting women as well as networking between women’s groups.

ActionAId Haiti has launched a new project : ICT empowerment of women voices in Haiti. Funded by UNDemocracy Funds.

Pwojè sa pran an konsiderasyon tout dinamik sosyal ak kominotè ki egziste nan espas entèvansyon sa yo pou ranfòse konpetans teknik fanm epi ba yo materyèl ak ekipman ki nesesè pou yo kapab genyen plis aksè a enfòmasyon, mete eksperyans yo an valè e kreye espas pou fasilite bon jan entèraksyon ak desidè yo nan nivo lokal ak nasyonal.

The goal of this project is to increase the influence and power of women in the North and Northeastern departments of Haiti through the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools to guarantee natural resource management policies and development programmes which protect the basic human rights of rural women in Haiti. The project will build upon existing social and community resources to reinforce the technical competencies of women while providing them with necessary materials and equipment to improve access to information,  share their lived experiences and create spaces for interacting with local and national decision-makers.
