Environmental Education & Reforestation in Haiti

Merry Christmas Haiti! May Santa Bring You A Better Life

On 12 January 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked a densely populated area of Haiti, near the capital of Port-au-Prince. Damage was extensive. Death estimates top 300,000, but noone knows for sure. More than 1 million people were left homeless, most of them remain in tent cities nearly 2 years later. No electricity. No sanitation. Few paved roads. Deforestation. Soil erosion. Yet, a spirit of hope and optimism remains.
