In Haiti, CECI is focusing on training young women and helping them find employment in trades that are in high demand on the labour market, but that were historically reserved for men. Helping hundreds of women in Carrefour-Feuilles make a living as masons, welders or carpenters: a great step forward with #CECIforGenderEquality.
