Family Sponsorship Program
In 2016, Beyond Borders piloted its Family Sponsorship Program, linking families in North America with Haitian families living in extreme poverty participating in an asset-based poverty reduction graduation program. Graduation programs are the first poverty eradication approach proven to be effective, sustainable and cost-efficient. Launched by BRAC in Bangladesh, it has been adapted by dozens of organizations working in many of the poorest parts of the world. Graduation programs give extremely poor families the training, resources and confidence needed to create sustainable livelihoods and rise from poverty to independence with dignity. We are currently preparing for the graduation of the third group of Haitian Families participating in the program and gearing up for launching a new group of new families.
