A two-year old partnership between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Heartland Association has produced a powerful organization called Women Empowered to Lead and Advocate for Development (WE-LEAD). WE-LEAD has done amazing work in Haiti by empowering over 1300 women thus far with the skills they need to be successfully economically, and to keep equal gender rights on the forefront of the national agenda.
