6th Way to Discover Haiti: Community2Community

In the past couple of days, we've shared with you some of the highlights of Haiti's history. We then fast forwarded and landed on the event that put Haiti at the forefront of everyone's mind for a time. In 2010, Haiti was on every TV set, twitter feed and on everyone's lips. The misfortune of the Haitian people became a hot topic! But soon enough the reporters went home, the cameramen boarded the planes and Haiti was left to fend for itself ... but some people remained.

In 2011, F.W.A.C. was honored to meet and support an organization called Community2Community (C2C). Over the past several months we've connected, raised awareness, hosted 'Petite FĂȘte' events and rocked 'God Save Haiti' t-shirts together all for the sake of one cause: Haiti.

C2C is a service organization dedicated to rebuilding communities in Haiti by working with the community. C2C founder Marie Eusebe firmly believes in partnering and empowering the locals in the restoration process. It is their land after all! Marie was born in Haiti but her family emigrated to the United States when she was six years old. Although she left Haiti, Haiti never left her heart. When the earthquake occurred a fire stirred up inside her. She had to do something. She resigned from her job at American Express and started Community2Community.

Since then, Marie and her team have been working tirelessly along side the Haitian people to target their needs. From the conversations they've had these 3 initiatives transpired: Water, Road and School.

Here is what they are up to now. MUST SEE
