HERE'S WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that even a small investment in women and their creativity can bring about big changes. That's why we started PeaceQuilts in Haiti 11 years ago!
PeaceQuilts, a 501(c)(3) economic development project, provides equipment, supplies, training, educational opportunities, and other support to help Haitian women establish small independent sewing cooperatives so they can earn a living wage - to feed their families, improve housing and educate their children. Find out how you can get involved by clicking on 'How You Can Help' in the menu bar at the top of the page!
Each purchase in our online store helps support member-owned sewing cooperatives where women create beautiful, artisan-made products, as well as striking one-of-a-kind original folk art quilts - all inspired by Haiti's rich artistic and cultural heritage.
