As one of the co-founders of the Sustainable Haiti Coalition, I’ve been feeling guilty lately about how little time I’m able to spend on sustaining our initiatives in Haiti.

Haiti’s History Revisited

Posted by on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Haiti’s Tragic History By ADAM HOCHSCHILD Published: December 29, 2011 For the better part of two centuries, outsiders have been offering explanations that range from racist to learned-sounding — the supposed inferiority of blacks, the heritage of slavery, overpopulation — for why Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

Posted by on Tuesday, April 5, 2011 at 6:14 am

[Some of this is reconstructed from handwritten notes and from memory.

Our First Day in Haiti

Posted by on Friday, March 25, 2011 at 12:25 am

After less than a day in Haiti, it’s already clear what many of the obstacles are to establishing a successful business or series of businesses here. For one thing, the combination of heat and humidity is oppressive, even at night, especially when there is no breeze, and nowhere to retreat to that is air-conditioned. It’s […]
