JANUARY

2012
CELEBRATED OVER 50 ENTREPRENEURS
We CELEBRATED over 50 entrepreneurs by hosting our annual Port Ouverte. Which gave others the opportunity to see what our organization is about first hand: creating sustainable jobs and promoting local goods. Our members, partners, and friends had the chance to visit our entrepreneurs and their employees at our offices while having the chance to buy some of their home grown goods!

FEBRUARY-MAY

2012

We TRAINED over 2200 people in business skills and life skills. It was not an easy task, but we understood the VALUE in training these displaced individuals. So we partnered with WORLD VISION to equip a more informed community of active citizens geared to create and promote sustainable jobs in HAITI.
