Here’s today’s update from Laurel True as she and her assistant Erin Rogers continue their work in Jacmel, Haiti with the Art Creation Foundation for Children (ACFFC). See Tuesday’s blog post for background and enjoy — Nancie
Day 6 Jacmel, Haiti
Amazing day. Can I say that every day?
Shells will be places for visitors to leave prayers and messages.
After we worked we played. Kids rapped. Played soccer. We talked about our lives and families. They are so patient with my crappy French. They are so loving and open and whip smart.
There was a group of musicians playing that were wonderful. We want them to come for out mural dedication on Monday evening.
Erin talking to folks about the possibility of bringing solar panels to Jacmel. So much potential. So much existing strength and energy here.
For the projects I have facilitated in Africa, participation by boys far outweighs that of girls. Not so in Haiti! Go girls!
Help Laurel’s work to rebuild and revitalize Jacmel to continue long after she is gone. Consider a gift to the Art Creation Foundation for Children in Haiti. Every dime will go towards feeding, housing, teaching and inspiring children in Jacmel.
