Verite Sou Tanbou: Thoughts on Cite Soleil, Haiti, & Beyond
Verite Sou Tanbou is written by Louino ‘Robi’ Robillard, an activist and community development worker raised in Cite Soleil, and Sabina Carlson Robillard, an American who has been living and working in Haiti for years. This blog will mostly chronicle the experiences and observations of Robi, and will be mostly written by Sabina as she is a native English speaker. But the mission and outlook of Verite Sou Tanbou is shared: to show parts of Haiti that many do not get to see. Some of these will be beautiful parts, and some of them ugly – we have no motive here but to reflect what we see.
Habitat for Humanity is an organization through which Gerald Joseph, EA Coordinator, and Doug Taylor, EA Advisor, met in 2008 while they were both employed by Habitat. Each year, the Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Indiana host Cover Indiana, a week-long bicycle tour across the state. The ride serves as a fundraiser, as well as a tool to build community amongst the many affiliates in Indiana. A significant number of Cover Indiana riders have participated on EA hikes.
Experience Haiti is Haiti's officially tourism site and can provide a lot of good information about Haiti and places of interest.
