Seeds of Change & Hope 4 Haiti's Communities

Dear Friend,

I want to thank you for always investing in us and for helping #HaitiansHelpingHaitians!  Your support helps us make a difference for Haitian communities as we work WITH them and FOR them.

I want to tell you about the "good news' first and the seeds of change and hope that you have helped us spread.  We are sharing a lot of photos, because photos sometimes speak louder than words.  

We've worked over the past few months with 13 community organizations on various initiatives see list below and a map in the photos showing where they are.  Our goal (as always) is to implement community chosen projects that help them achieve self-sufficiency.  Call us a catalyst.  Call us a true partner as we work with groups, learn from them, with them and support their goals in various ways from money, linkages, training and validation.We're building community and building nation.

Groups have leveraged the increased demand in ginger and honey (items in demand because of COVID-19 as they are immunity boosters)  to plant ginger and set up beehives.  Goats are always on demand. We make sure that groups get them vaccinated and tagged as they are not tied down in our communities but rather wander around.  Agriculture is always a major piece because, after all, although grossly under financed, it is Haiti's most prominent sector.  We are finally working both on the support of the development of Mutuelles Solidarites (a collective community financing platform that gives access to financing to those who usually don't have it), and on the development of a network of these Mutuelles also called MUSOs.

 Now friend, there are also plenty of bad news.  I am sure that you know about the murder of the President that threw Haiti in a tailspin.  On top of it, we also experienced the 2021 Earthquake which greatly impacted the Grand'Anse.  There are thousands dead, thousands of homes destroyed and altogether, overwhelming needs.  We've mobilized and have been meeting these needs.  This and also the recovery and reconstruction are and will be our focus.  We've set up a campaign on GlobalGiving to address the earthquake that we sincerely hope that you will consider supporting.  We are closing this one.  Yes, we continue to fight for community and there will be another campaign soon enough to focus on the reconstruction of our communities.

WE ARE HERE TO STAY. JOIN US & SUPPORT OUR FIGHT!

THANK YOU!!!

Yours, in solidarity,

Marie-Rose

P.S. Before the Earthquake and after President Moise's murder, we started a series of webinars featuring Haitian Leaders talking about their vision, perspectives and initatives for transforming Haiti.  It's been well received, and we're continuing it even as we are stretched by our disaster response efforts.  Now, more than ever, it's critical that the world hears from Haitian leaders and that we have our say and lead the way.
