You can help Haitians with disabilities to tell their stories in a never-before-done, multi-platform documentary series. There are more than 1 million such stories in Haiti. I heard many while volunteering in Haiti. They inspire me passionately. Thanks More

 

I ask for your support to fund our 2nd trip to Haiti in November to continue this important research and documention.

abilityhaiti is a collaborative international-Haitian project to understand and document disability in Haiti to help enhance the lives and reduce the suffering of the most vulnerable - persons with disabilities

Our two previous crowdfunding campaigns exceeded our goals through generous support and donations both on this site and off-line. The first helped get us started by funding travel, accommodation, security and expenses for our photographer, Scott Doubt, and I, this May. The 2nd is still paying for costs to produce and distribute content from that trip - stories, video interivews, photographic essays, articles, and for developing social media and web channels to grow awareness and encourage engagement. We also are so fortunate to have many professional volunteers who have contributed invaluable expertise to the project.

You can follow fresh stories and reports as they are produced on Facebook and Youtube.

Our goal of $5,000.00 for this campaign is higher and more ambitious to address the additional expenses for including a volunteer videographer (along with a photographer) on our November trip. We hope that you  will also help by raising awareness and increasing support for abilityhaiti among your networks. It will take all your help to grow a larger supporter base as the project grows and produces more outcomes.  By investing your support from the beginning, you will be contributing to the sustainability of this continuous multi-media documentation.

Life is hard in Haiti, even with incremental progress since the earthquake of 2010. Yet, Haitians are the most wonderful, resilient and proud people.

Living with a disability in a developing country is often a brutal struggle. Yet, those I've met are among the bravest, most beautiful people I know.

Thank you for your support.
