Board Visit to Haiti and Mamba Lespri
In the end of May, some members of the board went to Haiti for the first time; stereotypes dissipated, while new conceptions of the realities of Haiti were formed. It began with a bus that never came to deliver a car part which was later discovered not to fit. The car has been broken down for over a month. Each day brought news about the car alternatively generating hope or disappointment. The absence of the second car made accomplishing tasks for the factory a logistical mess. Not to mention it sometimes left the board members riding in the trunk. Amidst an environment that is challenging at best, every accomplishment stands out.
