I first met Peter when I took a trip to Haiti, with my friend Brenda who started a charity, Futures 4 Haiti, in 2013. In Haiti, education is not free, so the charity helps to send kids to school... especially girls! The first time I met Peter and his family, we went to the ghettos where they live in a one room cinder block house. Three kids and two adults. Ketchna, his eldest daughter, now 17, outside, next to her mother, who was preparing dinner on a makeshift propane burner, was working in an old math workbook, and she hadnt even attended school yet. Her parents were trying to educate her themselves.
Employment is INCREDIBLY hard to come by in Haiti. Peter wants to start a water business and needs our help! He has dug this huge hole. Next he will line it with cinder blocks and cement. Then he will have to pay someone to make a top and door. Then he will fill with water and sell to other Haitians. Here are photos of the stages.
