We Are In Haiti, Again

We arrived yesterday, Sunday, Veteran’s Day.  The flights were on time and uneventful.  When we arrived at customs Marlene Mathurin had arranged VIP treatment.  Anyone that has flown into Port Au Prince knows that one of the great frustrations of Haiti is going through customs and collecting baggage.  It was a breeze because it was handled.  I am spoiled for life.

We will be here until Thanksgiving Day.  Our objective this time is to evaluate availability of materials and if Ubuntublox is an appropriate building system for a library/community center in a community about twenty minutes from Cavaillon.  This project is with Atriskchildren.org.  We have high hopes.

As in all good things, there is a great conspiracy, some call it collaboration.  We wouldn’t be here without the support of The Memnosyne Institute.  Their passion for positive change in our world is the wind beneath many wings.  Here in Haiti we will be working with locals to help them with their Ubuntublox projects.  Part of our time will be spent at Haiti Communitere and we will be helping Global Groundwork for at least one day on their welding classes in Cite Soleil.  We are so fortunate to be with so many good people.
