The 2010 Haiti earthquake killed over 100,000 people and devastated the country’s infrastructure. In 2012, Nadia Todres started the Center for the Arts, Port-au-Prince, to create a safe space for adolescent girls in this uncertain landscape.
The Center uses arts programs to help girls grow in confidence, stay in school, and avoid teen pregnancy. The programs are also designed to help these young women develop their own income-generating skills in the arts.

LIDÈ supports at-risk girls and young women in rural Haiti who have been denied equal access to education.
Some girls have dropped out of school due to family and societal pressure; some live in extreme poverty; others have experienced abuse or other traumatizing events.
LIDÈ uses literacy and art programs to build the confidence of these girls and young women. It empowers them on their educational journey.
LIDÈ has a staff of 13 Haitian teachers working with over 500 girls at 12 rural locations in Haiti.
