Haiti Communitere is a collaborating partner in No Means No Pilot for Haiti, which is a rape prevention project. Under this initiative, women receive training in techniques to prevent and avoid rape. The project is a training of trainers initiative, meaning that women are empowered to pass what they have learned on to other women.
Haiti Communitere is the only place in Port-au-Prince where this training has taken place. Dozens of women have already received this training, and we aim to provide it to hundreds more. No Means No is an international initiative to tackle rape. The impact of this project is clear – in communities around the world where training has taken place the incidence of rape is reduced by 50 per cent. We aim to have the same impact in Haiti.
