People are always asking me what I've been doing in Haiti and I have so many answers that I could give. I work daily on a number of different initiatives that it is sometimes hard to say exactly what I am doing.
This month has been special in that I have done a lot of work in Carrefour, about 45 minutes from Port-au-Prince. I have been working with a group of men and women who are learning a trade and how to become self-sustainable at the Libellule Training Academy (LTA). Several of the women in the program have children that were once living in Love Community Home, the orphanage that Frontier Projects and Light for Living International Ministries (LIFLIM) supports. The program was created in an attempt for parents to un-relinquish their children from the orphanage and to support families staying together. I have been working on teaching marketing and money management to the group, and also figuring out their needs from a Western standpoint. It is hard for people of one culture to understand a culture that they are not completely committed to, so I work daily as an on ground liaison for Frontier Projects, assessing and managing needs.
