In partnership with the Atlantic-Midwest Province of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, in 2017 Beyond Borders engaged two new rural communities on the island of LaGonâve – Tipalmis and Nan Mango - to join the Model Community Initiative (MCI). The goal of the MCI is to equip each community to: 1. Guarantee all children protection from trafficking, exploitation, and abuse, 2. Secure access to quality primary education for every child, 3. Generate sustainable livelihoods, especially for the most disadvantaged families, and; 4. Prevent violence against women and girls and balance power between women and men and girls and boys.
