Our Work

What We Do

OUR MODEL

We use an integrated and effective model focusing on three pillars:  Health, Education and Community development to find solutions that last.

EDUCATION

Empowered
Communities

COMMUNITY

DEVELOPMENT

HEALTH

 

THE THREE PILLARS

Although medical care is critically important, increasing access to health care is not sufficient to improve health. We believe that preventive interventions can reduce the significant economic burden of disease in addition to improving the length and quality of people’s lives.

 

A large and growing body of research evidence suggests that social determinants of health are factors that need to be addressed if we want to have better health outcomes.

 

We use simple evidence-based solutions at community level that eliminate preventable diseases and deaths    

We believe that education provides the only sure path out of poverty. For us, education is a human right. Education is a right for everyone. It is a right for girls, just as it is for boys. Girls’ education in particular, is a strategic development investment. Evidence shows that girls’ education brings a wide range of benefits not only for the girls themselves but also for their children and their communities, as well as society at large in terms of economic growth.

 

"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. Education reduces poverty, empowers women and helps prevent disease."

–Nelson Mandela

REMODEL prides itself on its community focus. We believe that community development is a collaborative process that begins with understanding, identifying and prioritizing all the issues that are important to communities we serve. We believe that the people who live in the communities have the best knowledge about how to solve their own problems.

Our role is to ensure that people living in communities we serve are able to meet their basic needs, achieve their rights and become empowered.

OUR APPROACH

Our vision is to empower and build resilient, inclusive and connected communities -  active in realizing their potential. We strive to respect the autonomy and self-determination of communities, by favouring an approach that seeks to go beyond consultation to participation and beyond capacity building to consciousness raising and empowerment

 

PROJECTS

At REMODEL we strongly believe that the level of success and the long-term transformative impact of development projects is inherently linked to the level of involvement of local communities and organizations. We strive to involve the community at all stages of our projects, from conception and implementation to monitoring and evaluation. 

CURRENT PROJECTS

Mobilization in Maternal, Neonatal

and Infant Health

Maternal mortality is still very high in Haiti. According to EMMUS V, it is estimated at 380 per hundred thousand live births. While 90% of pregnant women receive prenatal care by trained health personnel, only 67% complete the recommended 4 prenatal visits. Nearly one in two women (49%) has anemia. Only 36% of births take place in a health facility of which only 37% are attended by a provider qualified in obstetrics.

This is a rather gloomy picture that requires other, more tailored approaches to alleviate this situation. REMODEL addresses the problem through the implementation of innovative interventions in Maternal, Neonatal and Infantile Health Mobilization and Awareness.
