We are very proud of our friend Wooby and his leadership at "tent city" where over 6000 families live displaced since the 2010 earthquake. HCS supports 4 teachers serving 80 students at a small school there. On a recent visit, an American visitor asked Wooby, "What can be done about the trash?"Wooby replied that hiring 25 local guys for $5 a day would help give people employment and keep the area clean. Our friend agreed to fund the initiative twice a month and it has had a ripple effect -- A foundation in Knoxville funded a new latrine block and the community rallied to clean up a trash dump to turn it into a soccer field.
We love to see the community involved and taking ownership of the project. As a result, the community is enjoying a much-improved sanitation system and a clean space to gather and play.
The Ripple Effect: One small change can have an enormous impact!
We are grateful to be a part of positive change in Haiti and thankful for our sponsors that make it happen!
