Good Morning, Members, Friends & all earthlings!

As probably most of you know as it has been reported in the news 14

months after the devastating earthquake, progress is still so slow in Haiti

Tent Cities are still there. Last week 3 people died as a result of the

2010 earthquake when a house collapse on them. With that said, there

are still some steps being taken by various non-profit organizations, such

as Food for the Poor, Ecoworks International, and some socially councious

businesses.

Members of Operation Green Leaves’ team working on the Environmental

center & volunteer village in Archaie. Haiti just came back from Haiti.

The mission was very productive. We are blessed to have Architect for

Humanity and other great Architectural firms donating their time and

talents to the project. We however need your financial support to make

the center a reality. Our goal is not only reforestation, but education &

training as well. to learn more about the project and to make a tax-

deductible donation, please visit http://www.globalgiving.org/6060

Restoring Haiti’s environment is a key element in the sustainable

reconstruction of Haiti. We must address the root cause of the

ecological destruction in Haiti. Provide alternative fuel souces and

energy & economic empowerment. Our motto is “Help Haitians Help

Themselves”. We are providing the tools to help our brothers & sisters

rise themselves out of poverty. Sharing a few pictures of one of our

partner orgnizations in Kenscoff, Haiti. Empowering a group of women

“Fanm kap plante”, Women who are planting.  Also pictures of deforested
