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. We also market their one-of-a-kind art quilts in the United States, and are in the process of developing a product line of affordable quilted items which are now being sold in retail shops, online and at Macy's as part of their "Heart of Haiti" initiative. Our goal is to help each cooperative to become self-managed and self-sustaining.
