THE STORY:

Hi Everyone,

My name is Jackie Vouthouris and today is my 27th birthday. As Program Director of Executives Without Borders’ recycling program in Haiti, named Ramase Lajan, I would like to ask for your support in lieu of birthday presents.

I am asking for donations of at least $27 to help cover transportation costs for plastic from our newest recycling center in Jeremie, Haiti. Can you double it to $54? Great. Can you give $270? Awesome. $2,700? Even better! 100% will go towards the first year of plastic transportation costs for this project.

Ramase Lajan has collected over 105 million bottles from the streets and canals of Haiti and generated over $500,000 USD so that Haitians can give their families better nutrition and send their children to school.

We have an exciting new opportunity to bring dignified jobs, income, and a cleaner living environment through Ramase Lajan to the families of a remote area of the country called Jeremie. Situated on the southwestern tip of Haiti, Jeremie is a small agrarian town of approximately 35,000 people. The area is overwhelmed with plastic litter like Port-au-Prince was three years ago before our program cleaned it up. We have secured funding for a new center for this community and have an ambitious local entrepreneur team waiting to take over and run it.

While the center is being built, we are fundraising for transportation costs to help get the center off to a strong start. Jeremie will be the farthest center we have ever opened and the biggest challenge to date due to its limited options for bringing the plastic it collects in the community back to the processing facility in Port-au-Prince. Once its volumes and cash flows are stably growing, the center can sustain itself and turn a profit. I have very high hopes for this center thanks to the large volumes of plastic in the area, the high demand for a recycling program, and the great team we have waiting to run it.

It would mean the world to me if you could contribute at least $27 to this effort, tell your friends, and share this page and video. I sincerely appreciate your time and your support for the people of Haiti.

With Gratitude,
Jackie
