“Mwen pap vire do ba ou, mwen pap janm lage ou:” Nou sonje 12 Janvye 2010

Ron Byler, Executive Director of MCC U.S reflects on his recent experience in Haiti.

A Push For Safer Housing

The driving force behind one of MCC’s newest efforts to help Haitians build back better after a devastating 2010 earthquake is an eclectic crew — young men in striped tights, pink pants, shirts bright enough to stand out even against the colorful “tap-tap” minibuses that carry people and goods through the streets of Port-au-Prince.

New chances outside the city

In Haiti, MCC is helping give rural youth the chance to complete vocational training without leaving home. When a 2010 earthquake destroyed the house where 16-year-old Rosie Tannis lived with her aunt and uncle in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, it took not only her home but also her plans to finish high school and study agronomy and languages at a university.
