International Women's Day, Haitian Style

Learn why the Haitian Women’s Federation of Haut de St. Marc called the day the “best celebration ever.” See pictures and a video of the special event and read about the rapidly developing progress of the amazing breadfruit initiative.

And Celebrations in the Dominican Republic

Here’s what happened in the DR: International Women’s Day was celebrated with a march through Barrio 41, with signs reading:

“Today we celebrate you because you are precious",
"Woman, you are unique, you wonderful",
"I love being a woman", and
"Happy International Women's Day".


The march ended at a central park in Consuelo, where people joined together for a time of motivational speeches, singing, dancing, and a display of artwork created by other women’s groups.

Post-Secondary Scholarship Program

One of the most exciting ventures that one can be a part of is to invest directly in the life of a student. Read the stories of these four young adults in Haiti who are benefiting from scholarships created through designated donations from Rayjon supporters:
  • Jamesly, who is studying Public Health;
  • Daniel, who has found new joy in life through an apprenticeship program;
  • Peterson, who is now able to continue his apprenticeship; and
  • Anise, who is embarking on her 4th year of medical school.
