Espwa Fe Viv, the Haitian Creole phrase for "Hope Makes Life," was a fundraiser organized by Kathy Lynn, a Eugene resident and RPCV Haiti, on behalf of three organizations working in Haiti. The organizations are:
- HELP, Haitian Education and Leadership Program, which provides merit based scholarships for high school graduates.
- FONKOZE which is Haitiís alternative bank for the organized poor. It serves more than 55,000 women borrowers, most of whom live and work in the countryside, and more than 175,000 savers.
- PAZAPA, which supports the treatment, education and development of children with handicaps. See http://www.pazapa.org.
