A Note from the Curator...

For centuries, Haiti has ranked at the bottom of the Western Hemisphere countries in economics, education, government stability, health care, nutrition, and every other topic on the social services and basic needs scale. The countries of the world have tried to help, however this problem is much bigger than can be fixed by throwing money at it. The devastating earthquake of 2010 refocused the world on helping Haiti and again foreign aid came pouring in with the same results; tons of money but no result. So what is the answer for Haiti? How can we stop the constant aid with no results cycle? I believe that the answer is to help the people of Haiti to become self-sufficient and in control of their own country. The first step is to help them. However, this kind of help needs organization with a future goal in mind of eventually working ourselves out of a job. There is a famous saying: “Give a man a fish he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” That is what our goal in helping Haiti needs to be. Our help needs to bring hope for the Haitian people to improve their own lives and their own country. Once they have learned to produce their own basic needs then we can move on to teaching them how to create a sustainable economy, one that will support them as they work towards a better tomorrow. By giving a helping hand now and creating hope, we can help Haiti to have a positive future. Centuries of poverty and illiteracy will not go away in a day or even in one lifetime. Therefore, we need to be in this for more than a day or even a year. It will take time; however, with the future always in mind, we can help the Haitian people to create the stable and productive country that they have always wanted. A nation built and run by its own people.

OVERVIEW OF ARTICLES AND LINKS....

For this project, I have tried to select articles that give valuable insight into what is happening in Haiti. One article from TIME discusses why the money already spent and sent to Haiti has not helped the situation, while the other article from NPR lists the positive improvements that have happened since the earthquake. I hope to post other positive articles as they come available.

The organizational links are just a sampling of groups that I feel have the right focus for helping Haiti. They are helping the people of Haiti now while also teaching them ways to support themselves in the future. From clean water to sustainable cooking sources, these organizations are helping the people to make a better life for themselves and their children. Other organizations highlighted are concentrating on the education of Haiti. It is a proven fact that as literacy increases so does the economy and hope of the people. From building schools to teaching the teachers, these organizations have a real stake in the future of Haiti. Some of the organizations run by churches while international clubs and government committees run others; yet all believe in the future of Haiti and the goals of helping now, giving hope, and building a positive future. I will add more links as I find organizations that meet the goals of Ede-Espere-Lavni.

“Roughly 80 per cent of the Haitian population is illiterate, and only 50 per cent of school-aged children go to school,” says Ms. Mathurin. “We have to continue to invest heavily in building schools, so that at least these 50 per cent can continue to go to school and get the education Haiti will need to build a better future.”

What is Restore Haiti: Restore Haiti is a development work forcused on preventing human trafficking in Haiti.After the devastating earthquate in Haiti, Restore Communities collaborated with HELP End Local Poverty by making a commitment to serve those most vulnerable to human trafficking through development and prevention.According to the Trafficking in Persons Report, homes are one of the, if not the most necessary base need in preventing human trafficking, so we are going to do just that - build homes.

We have launched a focused initiative to preventive trafficking on the Haiti/Dominican Republic border. We will build a cluster of homes at $6,000 per-home that will be dedicated to the most vulnerable orphans. These kids are the main target of traffickers. They are alone, abandoned and desperate.So, what are our goals in building these homes:

We will create jobs as Haitians lead this project and build the homesWe will train widows to be "house-moms" for 3-4 aged out orphan teenagersWe are going to allow the proved and trusted local churches to oversee the projectsWe will have each child multi-sponsored, which will provide their basic daily needs, formal education, up-keep on the homes and assistance for their house-mothers.We will help train the local community to love, care, and mentor these kids.Haitians will be caring for Haitian orphans on a daily basis

Hands Helping Haiti Water Project

Hands Helping Haiti Water Project | HAITI > Ede - Espere - Lavni < | Scoop.it

About Us...The Hands Helping Haiti Water Project works with communities in Southeast Haiti to develop safe drinking water supplies which will alleviate waterborne diseases and the incidence of malnutrition.  With our community workers we are installing biosand filters in homes which provide safe drinking water for a family, which will alleviate sickness, missed school and work, high infant mortality and premature death caused by drinking unsafe water.  In a country that is challenged with poverty and inadequate government services, these filters are sustainable and something that our Haitian friends can accomplish themselves, with our assistance.  The filter program consists of building and installing filters, teaching families proper water, sanitation and hygiene practices, follow-up through the community organizations and continuing health education through our school and medical clinic programs. The costs of the program is $50 per filter, all of which is spent with our Haitian workers and teachers. Each filter is capable of providing over 100,000 gallons of safe disease free water over its life.

Wellbody Alliance Amputee Livestock Project | HAITI > Ede - Espere - Lavni < | Scoop.it

For the past two years, a team of local staff, community leaders and Princeton University interns have developed a sustainable food-security program in several villages in Kono. With the support of Princeton Health Grand Challenges and Davis Projects for Peace, Wellbody has worked with amputee resettlement communities to build shelters that can hold large herds of goats, and have stocked each village with breeding animals. Each person who takes care of the goats for one day receives a salary sufficient to feed his family, and save some money as well.
