Young Haitian women from KOFAVIV

Yesterday was International Women’s Day.  In an effort to honor the 100th anniversary of this powerful day, I took three moments of silence to remember and honor the young Haitian women I met while visiting KOFAVIV, an organization that supports women and girls who have experienced violence. I met these amazing creative young ladies during my Heart of Haiti blogger ambassador trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti on February 26.  A very special digital sisterhood moment happened during my visit.  One of the young Haitian women and I really connected. We had some great conversations about her life and mine.  Before I left, she asked me for my email so we could stay in touch.  I promised her that I would stay in touch.  This week I am planning to write her a short email that includes the photos we took together.  Isn’t digital sisterhood great!
