Belle-Anse, Haiti

Belle-Anse, is one of the poorest and remote areas of Haiti.

In June 2018, Women Light the World, its education partner Barefoot College, the Angel Foundation ( which funded this past year two water pumps to enable the village and surrounding villages fresh drinking water) traveled to Belle Anse - 9 hours by jeep and boat from the capital city of Port-au-Prince.

Working with the community approximately ten women were interviewed who were enthusiastic about becoming solar engineers. Four women noted below were selected and were scheduled to attend Barefoot College in Sept. 2018. Sadly, due to political issues and the economic environment, the team made a decision to postpone the training.

These women are still ready to light up their village. We look forward to providing them the ability to be trained and the hope to transform their lives.
