Patience to Raise the Sun: Art Quilts from Haiti and their Power to Change Women’s Lives
PeaceQuilts is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), humanitarian organization relieving poverty in Haiti by establishing and supporting independent women’s quilting cooperatives. Currently we work with approximately 100 women organized into seven cooperatives in Lilavois, Croix-des-Bouquets, Cayes, Bel Anse, Roche-a-Batteau, and Cité Soleil, Port-au-Prince, with plans to expand. PeaceQuilts provides training, materials, supplies, marketing assistance, and educational opportunities…. Our goal is to help each cooperative to become self-managed and self-sustaining.
