Voices of Hope for Haiti’s Future
January 10, 2020
As this Sunday’s anniversary of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti drew closer, I was annoyed to see reporting that focused exclusively on how bad things still are ten years later. And while the list of entrenched problems the country faces is both long and daunting, a first-time foreign visitor would not recognize Haiti if their only guidebook was this one-dimensional international media coverage. In order to strike some sort of balance,
I approached several of my friends with the same question:
What is one thing you and your organization or business have initiated since the 2010 earthquake that you feel will continue to have a positive impact and which
gives you hope for Haiti’s future?
On the following pages are 46 answers to that question, presented in alphabetical order and starting with a list of contributors. Also added on page 15 is my own response, penned with my colleague Timote Georges on behalf of the Smallholder Farmers Alliance.
