Haiti

Planned as the need arises to help reach out and support a group of projects that directly affect the people and culture of Haiti.  We let those people we work with set our agendas and then we seek ways to work with them to develop ongoing resources for their work to continue in the midst of scarcity.  As an example, we help support a school that hosts about 60 children from what used to be a tent-city as they learn the “basics” which they would otherwise not be able to afford since schooling for the most part is privately paid.  We take time as a group to learn about the heritage and culture of the people of Haiti as well as the challenges of the slave trade over the centuries and develop greater sensitivity to what has been around for such a long time.  We engage in a variety of projects to help build, rebuild or strengthen the infrastructure of the communities in which we work without becoming just another hand-out organization.
