Supporting Little Dresses for Haiti

Little Dresses for Haiti

The Little Dresses for Haiti project was launched in 2011, and has provided handmade dresses to hundreds of children that attend the Ecole Saint Barthélémy school in the Terrier Rouge area of Haiti.

This project has worked in partnership with Bethlehem Ministry, a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of aiding Haiti’s poor. Their venture into the poverty stricken nation began a quarter century ago, led by well-known Haitian educator, Rev. Jean M. Bruno to establish a series of elementary schools in some of the nation's less recognized and lesser served regions. This US based non-profit planted itself in the underdeveloped northeastern region of the country, specifically Terrier Rouge. Since "adopting" Northern Haiti as home base, they have established a pre-K through 8th grade school (Ecole St. Barthélémy); an income generating, sustainable agricultural project (Jatrofa Pepinyè); and a medical clinic (Clinique Espérance et Vie), which seeks to meet the health and wellness needs of the local population.

Transformagic staff have been involved in the Little Dresses for Haiti project since the inception, providing materials, support, and labor, and travelling to Haiti to distribute the dresses while working alongside Bethlehem Ministry.
