Haiti Today

Many humanitarian organizations have visited Haiti since the devastating earthquake of 2010 with predetermined solutions that were proven effective in other countries. Their 'ready-made' solutions have provided immediate relief, but many have not helped communities become resilient or self-sustaining.

As such, outsiders have gotten the contracts, but communities have been denied the economic benefit.
