    Sounds like a worthwhile project. I visited Haiti with my family before the earthquake(My mom is Haitian), and i got the impression they are hard working people.

    This is a fascinating report; thanks. Are you writing more, either here or somewhere else? I’d be interested to read it.

    Two random questions, if you’re inclined to answer them:

    -How do they see their fundraising going, time-wise? Will this go up in a year, three, ten…?

    -is JCI a haitian organization? How are they managing to interact with haiti and its population so well when other folks have not?

      JCI is an international organization or young people 18-40 dedicated to community service and leadership training. Jaycee chapters in the U.S. have an age range of 21 – 40. When I was a member one motto was “Leadership training through commuity service.”

      There are chapters in virtually every community in the U.S.

      I imagine the Haitian JCI chapter will solicit some funds from U.S. chapters.

      Sorry about the typos. Too bad you can’t edit these things.
