A Quiet Moment After a Productive Day

Day Three: It’s a little before 11:00 PM and I am finally allowing myself the pleasure of a quiet moment…and a tall glass of rum.

Outside the Haitian sky is angry. For hours a steady rain has assaulted the roof above my head and I am very happy (and fortunate) that I do not live in one of Haiti’s many tent cities.

With regard to today’s activities, my focus today centered on three specific topics (objectives). My primary objective was to begin laying out the basic structure of the mentoring program whereby poor children from Cite Soleil will be matched up with “at risk” children from the resettlement camp in Corail. While this initiative will take a lot of effort to get off the ground, it is my hope that this program will help each group grow in self-esteem and self-worth.

As for my other activities, several other in-depth meetings took place involving job creation programs, nation-wide community water programs and further work on the memorial and peace park initiative in Titanyen.

Overall, another fruitful, though exhausting, day. And with that, I bid one and all a heartfelt goodnight.
