IAMCP WIT is proud to partner with Harvest for Humanity to deliver our First Ever Women’s Conference in Haiti
“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?” Robert Kennedy
#BeBold and join us in 2018 when we carry a message of hope, inspiration and education for young girls and women in Haiti.
This first-ever event needs IAMCP WIT members from around the world to help us make this conference happen.
• To let the women of Haiti know that they are not alone
• To help them gain access to knowledge, technology and people so that each individual can realize their potential
• To find and match tuition donors for girls who want to pursue STEM education at the university level
