9th Annual Haiti Open Space
June 27, 2010
Among the highlights for me (John Engle) at our 9th* Annual Haiti Open Space meeting that convened more than 80 Haitians from around the country was emphasis on social enterprise. In particular, social or “community” enterprise that can generate funds to pay teachers’ salaries which will lead to better education that is accessible to more Haitian children. This is something to get excited about.
Stay tuned. Our film about a Haitian success story using community enterprise to fund teachers salaries in numerous community schools and a companion booklet should both be finished by end of August. We’re grateful to Vista Hermosa for a grant that’s making this possible. Below is a short video about this. Click here to view photos.
