This January, I hope to return to Haiti for the first time in over twenty years. Upon arrival, I have 3 goals:
1- Participate in the restoration of the country,
2- Contribute to the enhancement of the existing education system via research,
3- Reconnect with my homeland and its people (my people).
Through a relationship with the Rasin Foundation (http://www.rasinfoundation.org/) I have been afforded this opportunity. I just learned that I will be conducting a needs assessment for the Leoganne community residents.
Due to the personal and voluntary nature of this endeavor I am responsible for raising the funds. Not surprisingly, I thought this would be more fun (and possible) if we all participated- a collective effort to send me home :)
My calculations indicate that a donation of $10.00 from 135 people will get me there.
I'm very excited and hopeful. Your sponsorship (of any amount) can make my dream a reality. Thank you!!!!!!
