    Signing off for now
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Overseer
    Hello! First and foremost, thank you for your support of this project! Without your support, we wouldn´t have been able to conduct our research trips and giving out survival kits, built a house out of palm leaves at one of the tent cities, run a census of the tent city, and support a community organizer to live in the...

    A Fundraising/ Partnership Building Trip to the US
    By - Caitlin McHale - Organization Director
    We have still not been able to visit Port-au-Prince again, but have been able to connect with more organizations serving in the area or planning to serve in the area. The condiitons of those affected by the earthquake is still so poor and it continues to hold a piece of my heart. Although our organization is busy with our...

    A Quick Visit, Another Hopefully Soon
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Overseer
    We recently visited Port-au-Prince for the first time since April 2010 but the trip was unfortunately cut short due to the unfortunate passing of my father a few days before the time we were set to leave. I went with the kids to see my family and then flew back into Port-au-Prince to meet up with my husband who was already...

    Ready to Get Started with Step 1
    By - Caitlin McHale - Organization Director
    Since the last update, we have continued meeting people working in the Port-au-Prince area and just building relationships. We now have a document that will officially outline our plan and serve as the tool for communicating the plan to other NGOs, missionaries, and members of the government. We will now begin circulating...

    Continuing Research, Preparing to Act
    By - Caitlin McHale - Organization Director
    In my last report, I stated that I would begin attempting to make more connections with other groups working on the ground in Port-au-Prince, as that would be necessary to get this project off the ground, because our organization is located in the Dominican Republic and we would not even be able to spend an extended amount...

    A Calm After the Storm
    By - Caitlin McHale - Organization Director
    We still have not had the opportunity or the funding to return to Port-au-Prince. As a reminder, we live in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic and Project Esperanza has been primarily serving the Haitian immigrant community here since 2006 in the areas of education, social work, and community development. Because we have not...

    Not much has changed, presidential elections...
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Coordinator
    I have not personally visited Port-au-Prince lately and have only been updated from others who are there or who have come here to the Dominican Republic from there. It sounds as though little has really changed in terms of removing rubble and creating housing for the tent communities. Around the time of the first round of...

    Big Potential but Need of Collaboration
    By - Caitlin McHale - Organization Director
    We have not been able to return to Port-au-Prince since April. We have, however, been able to receive insight to the situation from our director of medical efforts who has passed through a few times since then and led medical efforts in a camp and an orphanage there.  We still believe that the plan outlined in previous...

    Pulling out of a Dangerous Situation
    By - Caitlin McHale - Director
    I should have written this update sooner. We have had to remove our community organizer, Celony, from Port-au-Prince for the time being. Actually, he removed himself after being violently robbed. I have had such limited computer and internet time since finding this out which is why I did not report sooner. After my last...

    April 8, 2010 - Community Organizing & Elections
    By - Caitlin McHale - Director
    We arrived in Port-au-Prince Monday evening (3/29/10) and stayed, as we did before, at the house of some of my husband's family members. We met up with Celony, our trusty Haitian team member that we left to work on organizing/mobilizing a tent city in Port-au-Prince in late January, along with his brother Geneve who has...
