for July 20, 2020
We are excited to share updates on two of our prior grant recipients!
Be the Bridge is part of the 2020 Facebook Community Accelerator program! It’s a six-month program focused on helping impactful communities grow. The Be the Bridge team will spend the next 6 months doing intensive leadership and business training directly with Facebook and Uncharted to take them to the next level. They are 1 of 13 organizations from the North America Cohort and 1 of 77 worldwide!
Congrats to the Be the Bridge team!!
Second Mile Haiti is expanding to San Raphael, Haiti. San Raphael is a 70-minute drive (22 miles) from their existing facilities. They will be building a Family Center that combines the maternity and nutrition services as well as community programs.
In May, Second Mile Haiti officially signed the land papers. In August, they will break ground! After that, their first priority will be maternity and family planning services (including prenatal and postpartum care and midwife-assisted birthing space). If all goes to plan, these services will start by the end of the year.
Congrats Second Mile Haiti Team!
