Since its founding, Haiti has been recognized as a leader in human rights. Haiti is the site of the first successful slave rebellion as well as the first independent Black republic. Haitians are committed to positive change. It's in their DNA.
While Haiti recently has faced difficulties in its transition to democracy and in the living conditions of many of its people, Haitians are committed in their determination to transform their lives and their country. In this context, FOKAL's distinctive style is the understanding of its role to nurture individual and collective strengths toward hope and possibility. FOKAL interacts with all walks of life to promote their assets and strengths to be recognized, empowered and gain access to information and ideas in order to transform their lives and their environment.
