Sa Voix is about encouraging one another, working together, and celebrating the little strides. We're incredibly excited to be partnering with so many amazing individuals and organizations to equip young women here in Haiti. This journey has not been of ease but it's been one of trying and trying again. The beginning of our story has been perfectly imperfect.
