OUR VISION FAHM envisions a future in which midwifery is a viable profession, midwifery education programs are sustainable and every community throughout Haiti has access to the midwifery model of care which has been proven to decrease maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. A major issue we have found is the lack of visibility of Haitian midwives living and working in Haiti. Most internet searches lead you to non-Haitian, foreign-led initiatives. Haiti currently has one recognized midwifery school and an active midwifery association. FAHM strongly believes that having a strong presence and voice is paramount to the promotion of midwifery in Haiti. One of our delineated goals is to provide financial, organizational, educational and developmental support to midwifery associations, education programs, and midwifery students in Haiti. One of our guiding principles a beliefs is We believe in sustainable development and reject the model of charity. We worked closely with the Haitian midwifery association to redesign their logo and get a website up and functioning. We offered technical support and financial assistance and are pleased that as of this year they are independently (technically and financially) administering their site (). Since 2016, one of our main activities has been holding 2 conferences/year in Haiti for Haitian Midwives. In 2018 we held our first gender-based violence conference and are in the process of impact reporting (following up with targeted focus groups/assistance in implementing what they have learned over the last 2 years). FAHM is currently being run by a volunteer board. The Founder/Executive Director and our Program Director are paid very modest monthly stipends. As we grow so do our financial needs and our person power . The vast majority of our grants and fundraising go directly to the services we provide. We have previously worked very well, on two separate projects, with professionals we engaged from Taproot. It has helped us tremendously. We would like to optimize our community engagement and successfully market ourselves. Our strategic plans include expanding our efforts in promoting midwifery in Haiti as well as offering continued support to Haiti's midwives and midwifery students through the latest evidence-based continuing education conferences. We welcome assistance refining and redesigning our current website to give it a new look and feel. Our website () is on Squarespace. In terms of branding, we have a logo and an array of photos from the work we have been doing since 2015. Our target audience is those either seeking information about midwifery, maternal- child health, maternal and infant mortality, global health or donors.
