Tomorrow I’ll be flying down to Port-au-Prince with some folks from JCI to check out the construction of a new community center. It’ll be a quick trip — just four days — but I’ll be writing about it here. A description of the project is at the link. Any questions you have? Particulars you’d like to see covered?
Once completed, the center will provide hope and positive change to the community through exciting and inventive opportunities. These include a community radio for educational and informational programs as well as a daycare to support working parents. The center will also provide many offices and conference rooms for groups within the community to meet, coordinate and plan future projects that will support the development of the country. While the center will offer much needed resources, its presence in the community will bring many opportunities for progress including economic empowerment.
