Community Development

Women’s Empowerment

The Women’s Empowerment project came about on March 8th 2011 which was International Women’s Day. HAC decided to celebrate the women of the community  through song, encouragement and sharing a meal. During this event, community women decided to begin meeting once a week to discuss various issues and socialize. “Cercle de l’Amitie de la Ferme Blanchard” or “Circle of Friends from La Ferme Blanchard” was established.

Since this initial meeting, they are already mobilizing to realize goals discussed in their meetings. Personal development classes such as computer, sewing, cooking, art classes, English classes are in the process of forming.  The ladies also decided to have a committee to help them better achieve their goals.

They have named the long-term goal of expanding and unifying to become powerful, financially stable women. HAC believe in working together to help strengthen our sisters in every ways that we can. HAC is providing access to its facilities, securing guest speakers, and facilitating the development of Circle of Friends.

Community Meetings

HAC proudly hosts quarterly community meetings where members can present their concerns to their elected officials. This is through a partnership with the Croix-des-Bouquets Mayor’s Office.
