As the earthquake-ravaged country of Haiti works through its long recovery process, stories of empowerment and inspiration continue to emerge.

Emmy Award-winning producer and host Tawnya Rush recently traveled to Port au Prince to better understand the people and places of the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, finding stories that add a different perspective to life in Haiti.

She traveled with the Colorado-based Christian World Outreach, a charitable organization that has been working with Haitians for more than 33 years.

"Hands on Haiti" is an exclusive two-part series written and produced by Rush. In part one, she highlights a Feminine Training Center, exploring how the lives of Haitian women and girls are being transformed daily.
