Monday: Economic Development Tour (Overview)

Today we took an economic development tour of Haiti from the capital city of Port-au-Prince to the mountainous town of Jacmel. The purpose of this tour was to allow team members to see Haiti for themselves and use what they’ve witnessed to refine and expand Project Eden’s initiatives. Our guide fed us tidbits of Haitian history and information regarding Haiti’s economic challenges. This tour helped us to put a face to the statistics we have read. It also stimulated a rich brainstorming session on balancing economic and social development.
