The Purpose of the Site

I moved to Haiti in January 2005. I’ve been writing regular essays since then about the various projects that my colleagues and I work on and about our lives in Haiti. More recently, I began adding photos, and soon plan to add audio clips.

This site can play a special role in the work. I hope that it will become a place where those who are curious or interested in the work can ask us questions or offer comments. The site can make it possible for all sorts of people to share in the learning we’re doing.
