Economic Prosperity

The CEI Model fundamentally disrupts the cycle of poverty through a unique community-led, relationship-building process — addressing and solving problems of social injustice, and civic disenfranchisement. Our bottom-up process:

  • Assures equity and equal opportunity
  • Overcomes obstacles of corruption, inefficiencies or ineptitudes
  • Builds economic stability and essential skills

We are currently working with over 500 families in 10 villages in rural Haiti.

We facilitate the growth and expansion of local economies through programs that build individual prosperity, capacity and well-being, including:
