Mission

Dwa Fanm is a Haitian women's rights organization committed to empowering all women and girls with the freedom to define and control their own lives. Through service, education, advocacy and grassroots programs, Dwa Fanm works to end discrimination, violence, and other forms of injustice here and abroad. Since its formation in 1999, Dwa Fanm has developed its programming in direct response to the needs of women and girls in New York City?s Haitian, Caribbean and other Black immigrant communities. While Dwa Fanm is best known for its work on domestic violence, we understand the connections between various forms of hate and discrimination and the necessity to address these problems comprehensively and with leadership from within our communities. We remain committed to addressing a broad array of issues of critical concern to the populations we serve through a model that integrates service, advocacy and empowerment, and we continually seek to develop more effective ways to synthesize these inter-connected goals.
