Our Story

Our History

What started as a study group for young Haitian women transformed into a safe space for them to voice concerns about their communities and specific issues relating to women. As they continued to meet and talk, the study group grew into an association dedicated to aiding Haitian women in Boston. With this small basement meeting in 1988, the Association of Haitian Women in Boston, otherwise known as the Asosiyayon Fanm Ayisyen nan Boston (AFAB), was born.

The Association of Haitian Women in Boston (AFAB-KAFANM) is a grassroots organization founded by a group of Haitian women from different social, religious, and economic backgrounds who have joined forces since August 1988 to reflect the voices of women in the Haitian community.
