GEMS's Event to support FOKAL

Formal Masquerade Ball hosted by GEMS LLC to support the work of FOKAL in Haiti ---

GEMS was established in 2004 by an enthusiastic group of women who felt a need to create a place in which women of diverse yet familiar background could come together to create a support structure that would encourage the exchange of ideas; promote self-sufficiency by way of lucrative investments and business ventures; and implement programs and scholarships that will impact the wellbeing
of our community for years to come.”

They hosted a formal Masquerade Ball, on Saturday 3 March 2007 to support the work of FOKAL (Fondasyon Konesans Ak Libete), an independent foundation in Haiti supported by the Open Society Institute and other international and local organizations. FOKAL provides a range of educational, human development and economic activities to local communities. After more than a decade, it has become the leading independent
organization shaping the future of Haiti.;
