Empower Haitian Women at the first Haitian American Business Summit in Miami Dade

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others!”

This inspiring quote motivated Doudly Elius, despite his disability, to go far to Miami Dade, and represent the Empower Haitian Women organization in one of the most important business summit where he participated in a business panel and advocated for the integration of women with disabilities in the business sector. Empower Haitian Women organization aims to help women living with disabilities to overcome their financial barriers, to be professionally fit for the job market and to become independent financially. The goal is not only to develop business skills of Haitian women and girls with disabilities, but also to provide them opportunities as individuals and as a group to collaborate on business ideas.

Mr. Elius holds a great promise for the economic and financial future of Haitian women living with disabilities. In this context, he had the same aim as the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce in Florida (HACCOF), in partnership with the Bank of the Republic of Haiti (BRH) and the Miami Dade County commissioner's office, who organized the first Haitian-American Business Summit (HABS2017) at the Florida International University in Florida, Miami Dade on June 15th to 17th, 2017.

HABS fulfilled its mission of being the catalyst to connecting the diaspora and diverse institutions in Haiti. Participants came from throughout the United States, Haiti and beyond, to connect, engage and discuss investment opportunities in Haiti, as Mr. Doudly Elius; the Empower Haitian Women Founder/General Secretary represented the organization there throughout various panel discussions entitled “CONNECT - ENGAGE – INVEST”.

During the first day, at the FIU Kovens Conference CenterDoudly discussed a very important and vital topic which is the barriers between generations and ways to eliminate those and institute a climate of cooperation for the good of the country. This panel entitled "Linking the millennials generation fromHaiti to that of the diaspora" welcomed Doudly as well as four others young speakers entrepreneurs: Marc Alain Boucicault (Elan-Haiti General Coordinator and Banj CEO); Stéphane Jean Baptiste (Kreyol Essence CEO); Sandra Florvella Pierre (CEO of Haitian Business) and Wanda Tima (L’unionsuite).

The four panelists made a great impact at the business summit and questions related to investment opportunities and obstacles were raised. Since his fight is about the economic inclusion of women with disabilities, the founder of Empower Haitian Women enlightened the audience about the business structures that are already setup in Haiti to receive and manage investments and stressed on the reasons why Haitian American investors should develop strategies to include this part of the population into the business sector.

Doudly Elius concluded his address at the Business Summit on Sustainable Development Goals by saying: “We need an inclusive economic development and support people living with disabilities if we want to reach the sustainable development objectives. The focus should also be on women as they are the foundation of Haiti's economic development.”

Empower Haitian Women builds capacity of job seekers living with disabilities

Doudly Elius, General Secretary/founder of Empower Haitian Women Organization delivering training on how to prepare an interview at BSEIPH-Presentation to 40 people with disabilities

On July 20 and 21, 2017, the Bureau of the Secretary of State to the Integration of the Disabled (BSEIPH) and Empower Haitian Women Organization (EHWO) delivered to 40 persons living with disabilities the key to become more competitive and to get ready for job research in Haitian market. The two-day seminar aimed at building the capacity of job seekers living with disabilities. It has been presented by Yves Eddy Surpris, Gilles Betide (both newly volunteers) and Doudly Elius -General Secretary and Founder of the organization, first Haitian who won the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) globally Project competition in 2014 and the Alumni Impact Award in 2016, both international competitions organized by the U.S State Department.

For two days, the BSEIPH office welcomed 40 men and women living with disabilities highly excited by the proposed topics selected to fit their needs: How to write a convincing resume, how to prepare a motivation letter, how to successfully pass a job interview, and how one can use the internet for his/her professional success.

Gilles Betide presenting how to prepare a motivation letter
Rules to follow, common mistakes to avoid… all the secrets and tips were revealed and the participants quickly understood that, for a job seeker, the first impression is crucial. For the technical aspects of the training, Gilles Betide, senior student at “Centre Technique et de Planification Appliquée” (CTPEA) and major in Administration at INAGHEI along with Yves Eddy Surpris, young entrepreneur and major in Social Work at the Faculty of Human Sciences (FASCH) - did their best to ensure the different concepts and information were well assimilated by the 40 trainees. Some participants wondered: “Why the motivation letter is considered that important?” Although it is mostly considered as an incidental document, the letter of motivation plays an essential role since it offers at first sight a short but crucial overview of your personality and skills; a well-written letter of motivation can captivate and motivate an employer to call a candidate for a job interview. "Thus, a job seeker who neglected this important piece of the candidacy papers put his/her self at risk", reminded Gilles Betide.

During those two days, a participative approach was adopted so that the attendees could well assimilate the new techniques and tricks but also to give them an opportunity to voice their fears giving that the job market in Haiti can be a true field of obstacles for people living with disabilities. Doudly Élius, who is as well suffering from a degenerative sickness and has been living with a disability since three (3) years, understood that for such training the psycho-social side would be as important as the technical aspect. "Let’s stop considering our disabilities as barriers to our success; we should focus on acquiring appropriate skills. In addition to your competencies, the techniques you are learning today and the self-confidence we wish to see you develop by the end of this seminar are tools that will help you sell yourselves in a better way on the job market", he underlined.

Empower Haitian Women Organization works for the economic empowerment of this category of the population which is most of the time neglected and rejected. Mainly composed of young Haitians and supported by volunteers from all around the world, EHWO believes that people living with disabilities can take care of themselves, have an active life and contribute to the development of their country if only they are given the opportunity and the means to reach their full potentials.

This seminar aimed at building the attendees’ capacity and supporting them in their way to social and economic empowerment. "We have the ability to make a difference in these people’s life. So, let's make it happen", concluded Doudly Élius, this young Haitian man who has been fighting for many years now for the inclusion and social justice in favor of women living with disabilities in Haiti.

AAFHAMR renforce la capacité des chercheurs d’emploi handicapés

Les 20 et 21 juillet 2017, le Bureau du Secrétaire d’Etat à l’Intégration des Personnes Handicapées (BSEIPH) et l’Association pour l’Autonomisation des Femmes Haïtiennes à Mobilité Réduite (AAFHAMR) ont livré à 40 personnes à mobilité réduite les secrets pour bien se préparer à percer le marché de l’emploi en Haïti. Ces séances animées par Yves Eddy Surpris (volontaire AAFHAMR), Gilles Betide (volontaire AAFHAMR) et Doudly Elius, Secrétaire Général et fondateur de l’association -premier haïtien ayant remporté le concours Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) en 2014 ainsi que le prix Spring Alumni Impact Award en 2016 organisés par le département d’état des Etats-Unis d’Amérique- visent à renforcer la capacité des chercheurs d’emploi handicapés.

Durant deux jours consécutifs, le Bureau du Secrétaire d’État à l’Intégration des Personnes Handicapées a reçu une quarantaine d’hommes et de femmes à mobilité réduite enthousiasmés par les thèmes des quatre modules prévus à leur intention : Comment rédiger un CV convaincant, Comment préparer une lettre de motivation, Comment réussir une entrevue d’embauche, et Comment exploiter l’internet pour sa réussite professionnelle.

Les normes à respecter, les erreurs à ne pas commettre… aucun détail n’a été laissé au hasard et les participants ont bien vite compris que, pour un demandeur d’emploi, il est impératif de s’assurer que la première impression qu’on fait sur le potentiel employeur soit la meilleure. Pour les accompagner sur les aspects techniques pour la présentation des documents clés de candidature, Betide Gilles, étudiante senior au Centre de Technique et de Planification Appliquée (CTPEA) et détentrice d’une licence en Administration de l’INAGHEI, et Yves Eddy SURPRIS, jeune entrepreneur et étudiant finissant en Travail Social à la Faculté des Sciences Humaines (FASCH), ont usé de toute leur énergie. ‘‘A quoi peut bien servir ce document qu’on appelle " lettre de motivation" s’étaient demandés certains participants ?’’ La lettre de motivation bien que n’étant un élément complémentaire au curriculum vitae, joue un rôle primordial car placé avant celui-ci est la fenêtre qui offre une courte mais cruciale première vue sur votre personne et vos compétences ; bien rédigée, elle captive et empresse l’employeur à appeler le candidat pour l’entrevue d’embauche. "Son rôle est capital et ne peut pas être négligé sinon la situation serait défavorable pour le demandeur d’emploi", a tenu à rappeler Betide Gilles.

Tout au long de ces deux jours, une approche participative a été adoptée afin de permettre à l’assistance d’assimiler les nouvelles techniques et astuces partagées mais aussi d’exprimer à haute voix leurs malaises par rapport aux dures réalités du marché du travail à l’égard des personnes à mobilité réduite. En fait, l’elaniste 2014, Doudly Elius, lui-même atteint d’une maladie dégénérative et vivant avec une mobilité réduite depuis tantôt trois ans avait compris que l’aspect technique mais tout autant la préparation mentale devrait être abordés. ‘‘Avoir une mobilité réduite ne diminue point les chances de réussir quand on a les compétences nécessaires. Les techniques et la confiance qui nous permettent de développer nos séances de formation sont des outils qui vont vous apprendre à mieux vendre vos aptitudes’’, a-t-il souligné.

L’Association pour l’Autonomisation des Femmes Haïtiennes à Mobilité Réduite (AAFHMAR), travaille pour l’autonomisation financière d’une tranche de la population souvent oubliée et isolée. Formée majoritairement de jeunes haïtiens et supportés par des volontaires des quatre coins du globe, l’AAFHMAR soutient que les personnes à mobilité réduite peuvent se prendre en charge, regagner la vie active et contribuer au développement de leur pays si seulement on leur en donne l’opportunité et les moyens pour atteindre leurs pleins potentiels. Cette formation qui témoigne bien de cette vision annonce de nombreuses autres initiatives visant le renforcement de capacités et l’inclusion socio-économique de ces personnes. 

‘‘Nous avons la capacité de faire la différence dans la vie des autres, alors agissons en conséquence’’ rappelle d’ailleurs assez souvent Doudly Elius, ce jeune haïtien qui lutte depuis des années pour l’inclusion des femmes à mobilité réduite.

A prestigious meeting between EHWLD and the Secretary of State for the Integration of People living with Disabilities

On April 27, an important meeting was held between the Empower Haitian Women Living with Disabilities (EHWLD) association and the Office of the Secretary of State for the Integration of People living with Disabilities (BSEIPH in French). The EHWLD was founded and is currently led by Doudly Elius, first Haitian winner of 2014 Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund and of the Spring 2016 Alumni Impact Award from the US Department of State. Elius is a young social entrepreneur who himself developed a motor handicap during his working life, had to fight to stay active. As such, he decided to support women with reduced mobility in doing the same.

From left to right, Jean Pierre Vinet (EHWLD Legal Assistant Manager),
Gerard Oriol (Secretary of State of BSEIPH), Bellune Clauselle (EHWLD Account Manager
 and Marcelin Alceus (EHWLD Financial Advisor)

During the meeting, representatives of the EHWLD, namely Jean-Pierre Vinet, Legal Assistance Manager, Clauselle Bellune, Project Accountant, and Marcelin Alceus, Financial Advisor, launched right away into the discussion around future joint actions with the Secretary of the State for Office for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities, Mr Gérald Oriol. The session revealed itself to be very fruitful and was held under the sign of cordiality as the two institutions maintain excellent relations. In fact, they have already collaborated for the training of 40 people with reduced mobility following EHWLD’s creation in 2014. This meeting with the BSEIPH focused on key trainings from the action plan of the association around major topics for the integration of disabled women in the market, including leadership skills and techniques to prepare resumes and interviews.

"The training is foreseen for the upcoming month of June," said Marcelin Alceus; therefore, preparations for these training sessions are already well under way. Daworldson Senelus, Head of the Integration and Placement department from the BSEIPH, has confirmed the availability of a large conference room for trainings, meetings, workshops or any other activity to be carried out by EHWLD.

Mr. Senélus even pointed out "the lack of competencies in the field which have delayed many training sessions that should have been carried out by the Office of the Secretary of State for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities (BSEIPH)". An additional opportunity to be seized by EHWLD since several of the themes selected by the BSEIPH appear on the 2017 agenda of the association.

A request for equipment was also submitted to BSEIPH and noted by Secretary Oriol. In the near future, the possibility of helping the EHWLD in getting computers could come alive through a joint protocol. A proposal of legal assistance for people with reduced mobility was also suggested to the Secretary, who applauded the initiative and is looking forward to getting the details on such services because this type of support is generally largely lacking.

Encouraged by EHWLD's many proposals, Secretary Oriol, spontaneously turned into an advisor and highlighted the need for the association to start seriously considering economic projects that would act as incubators and drive economic development for people living with disabilities in Haiti. According to the Secretary, it is time to help EHWLD’s past trainees take advantage of what they have learned. He believes experimentation and field practice are the best ways to confirm to what extent the theories delivered in prior training had been assimilated by the trained entrepreneurs.

L’ambitieux projet de l’AAFHAMR dévoilé au grand public


S’étant attelée depuis quelques années à la promotion des femmes haïtiennes à mobilité réduite, l’Association pour l’autonomisation des femmes haïtiennes à Mobilité réduite (AAFHAMR), dirigée par le premier haïtien gagnant du prix Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund 2014 et Alumni Impact Award 2016 du Département d’État, Elius Doudly a présenté au grand public les grandes innovations de l’ambitieux projet « Femme et création » à l’occasion de la conférence organisée par Vwa jenès à l’initiative d’Innov Pap samedi 18 mars 2017 à l’Institut français d’Haïti.

Tant attendu, le passionnant projet « Femme et Création » a charrié près d’une centaine de jeunes filles et garçons suspendus aux lèvres de la conseillère en communication de l’AAFHAMR, Stéphania Musset, qui a tenu à dégager les grandes orientations du projet.

 Sans vouloir réduire les chances des participants tiraillés entre hésitation et tâtonnement pour répondre à la question lancée au champion ou à la championne, à savoir « combien de cadres d’institutions ou d’entrepreneurs en Haïti connaissez-vous qui vivent avec un handicap ? » Mme Musset, animée par un esprit de transmission du savoir, a égrené une kyrielle de créations des femmes haïtiennes vivant avec un handicap, a-t-on observé.

 À l’aune des objectifs de développement durable, « Femme et Création » est, peut-on lire dans la note de presse, un atelier de formation sur la production de produits artisanaux contribuant directement aux objectifs 4, 10 et 12 visant respectivement à une « Éducation de qualité », une “Réduction des inégalités”, une incitation à la “Production et la consommation responsables” par des techniques de recyclage et de valorisation des déchets plastiques, a poursuivi la note rapportant les propos de la porte-parole, Stéphania Musset. Et aussi à une revalorisation du “Travail décent et croissance économique” par la commercialisation des articles et la création d’entreprises des participantes et, pour enfin et surtout, favoriser “’l’Égalité des sexes » suivant les objectifs 8 et 5, a-t-elle renchéri.

Dans la foulée des questions, le public s’est demandé comment le projet « Femme et Création » peut-il toucher autant de domaines et aborder tant de problèmes cruciaux auxquels font face les femmes à mobilité réduite en Haïti, en abordant la question clé et vitale de l’autonomisation des femmes qui vivent avec un handicap, notamment.

Sidérée, Mme Musset a déploré le constat, dit-elle, alarmant en répondant que « Vous et moi avons construit un monde qui répond à nos besoins, une société qui ne voit que nos préoccupations. Vous et moi avons bâti un monde injuste où les personnes à besoins spéciaux, plus de 10 % de la population n’ont pas leur place ». Elle s’est montrée attristée du fait que la plupart des gens ont cité comme exemple uniquement des personnes travaillant dans des centres ou institutions faites spécifiquement pour les personnes à mobilité réduite à la question initialement posée. Certains font allusion au centre de réhabilitation ; d’autres, au secrétariat aux personnes handicapées ou à la fédération des personnes handicapées, a-t-on constaté.

 Communicatrice sociale, Mme Musset a jugé bon d’interpeller la conscience des assistants sur la forme de questionnement. « Allons-nous donc passer notre vie à enfermer ces gens dans des boites marquées “Spécial” et “Fragile” ? Toutes nos infrastructures continueront-elles d’être des barrières comme le sont l’éducation, la formation, l’emploi, la participation active à la vie sociale pour les personnes à mobilité réduite, spécialement les jeunes filles et les femmes ?

 C’est pourquoi “‘Femme et Création”’ est, selon les responsables de l’AAFHAMR, un cri d’alerte visant à rappeler aux participants la nécessité d’aller à la découverte des véritables trésors d’ingéniosité de ces femmes à qui il ne manque souvent que l’opportunité. « Une à une s’il le faut, nous allons aider ces femmes et si vous êtes de l’assistance, comprenez comme nous que ceci est notre devoir, rejoignez-nous » a conclu Stéphania Musset.

Pour sa part, selon le coordonnateur de l’AAFHAMR, Elius Doudly, joint au téléphone, le projet « Femme et Création » se veut un projet d’inclusion financière et sociale des femmes haïtiennes à mobilité réduite. Cet innovant projet, a-t-il qualifié, vise à divorcer d’avec les anciennes pratiques d’imposition de projets aux personnes vivant avec un handicap, mais à mettre en revanche ces catégories de gens au centre des décisions en tant que propres acteurs du changement, de leur développement par la triple dynamique intégration, participation et engagement communautaire, a-t-il annoncé.

Toast-mater de son état et élaniste 2014, M. Elius croit que la communication et la formation de ces femmes en éducation financière et en plan d’affaires, entre autres, seront les canaux privilégiés pour renforcer le travail de plaidoyer que réalise l’AAFHAMR au sein de la société haïtienne dans le cadre de ce projet.

Vivant avec un handicap moteur depuis peu, le fondateur de l’AAFHAMR, Elius Doudly, a laissé entendre que son rêve est de transformer son handicap en arme intellectuelle et émancipatrice en vue de renforcer, a-t-il ajouté, la capacité des femmes à mobilité réduite.

Il s’est dit choqué de voir que des citoyennes haïtiennes, pleines de potentiels, sont obligées de rester cloitrées chez elles parce que personne ne leur reconnaît les droits pourtant garantis à tous les Haïtiens par la Constitution haïtienne, citant l’article 32.8 qui prescrit que « l’État garantit aux personnes à besoins spéciaux la protection, l’éducation et tout autre moyen nécessaire à leur plein épanouissement et à leur intégration ou réintégration dans la société ».

Dans la même veine, Marc Alain Boucicault, le Coordonnateur général d’Élan Haïti et One Young World Ambassador qui participait à la conférence, a également interpellé le public d’un ton résolu      
« soyez choqués et trouvez une solution à la cause de votre émoi ».

À en croire les organisateurs d’Innov Pap, le projet « Femme et Création » a fait partie d’une liste de six (6) projets à avoir été présentés au public. Pour eux, cette initiative a été prise de nature à inciter les jeunes regroupés en association ou pas à écrire des projets de ce genre à l’aune des objectifs de développement durable.
