Hello friends! I am so glad you're here. I'm Amy, founder + owner of Bel Koz Haiti which means "Beautiful Cause" in Haitian Creole. My love for Haiti began with a mission trip to Calebasse in 1999. After just one week in Haiti at the age of 15, I fell completely in love with the people. Little did I know then, but that trip forever changed my life path.
At Bel Koz Haiti, our mission is simple. We are strong believers in the fact that if everyone does their part, we can make the world a better place. In Haiti, we do this by providing skilled artisans dignified employment. A job that is allowing them to provide for their families; food, education, healthcare. I look at the artisans that Bel Koz employs as family.
One of the things I love most about Bel Koz Haiti and our product is the fact that these talented Haitian artisans are making a beautiful product that our customers absolutely LOVE. These products inspire our customers. The bracelets and the charms serve as a personal daily reminder for that person who is struggling with depression and chose the charm, "Theres Always Hope" or "I Am Enough." To the person who is fearful that chose the reminder, "Fear Is A Liar" or the teenage girl who looks in the mirror and thinks she's not worthy, who's mother or friend gifted her with a bracelet that says, "Worthy" + "You Are Loved." I could go on and on about the people I've met since starting this journey and the lives that have been touch by these simple bracelets and their powerful impact while going to markets, representing my artisan friends in Haiti.
Thank you for choosing to support our mission through your prayers, your encouragement and your purchases.
