Partnering with Grameen Creative Lab
April 22, 2011
All of us at Haiti Partners are excited about a new partnership with Grameen Creative Lab in Haiti. While social business to advance quality education has been a priority for us since our conception, we acknowledge that we need more expertise and accompaniment.
The professionally done film we did, “Solisyon Natif Natal” (A Haitian solution) about a Haitian success story of communities creating social business to fund education is evidence of our commitment to highlight and encourage using social business to improve education. (Click here to view film)
We need to help our partner school that is already using social business to help fund their operating budget to significantly expand their business. We need to help our partner schools that don’t yet have social businesses to create them. We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Grameen Creative Lab to help with this. We will make sure that successes ripple out to other schools and communities.
The theme of our meeting yesterday was “Creating and Strengthening Schools.” In attendance were representatives from Ministry of Education, local and international organizations including Limyè Lavi Foundation and Beyond Borders, along with CNN Hero, Boby Duval of l’Athletique d’Haiti.
Collaboration is what it’s all about. Haiti Partners is honored to be part of a growing network of organizations working together to help all Haitian children have access to quality education.
