ReThinkHaiti.org’s goal is to effect changes
At the Millennium Summit in Sept 2000, the largest gathering of world leaders in history adopted the Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to a new global relationship, to reduce extreme poverty, and setting out a series of time-bound targets with a deadline of 2015 that have become known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s).
As a result of the devestation created by the catastrophic earthquake of January 12, 2010 in Haiti, Conditions that were previously difficult have now worsened. Large numbers of people are displaced. Whatever feeble infrastructure and organizational framework existed are now more damaged and in greater disarray than ever before.
It is critical to ReThinkHaiti for the Haitian people to have a chance to recover and to flourish.The fastest way Haiti can be rebuilt and its people live safe and productive lives is to focus efforts on SINGLE COMMUNITY-BASED COMPREHENSIVE INITIATIVES. These initiatives, encompassing a broad spectrum of services, infrastructure projects, and economic opportunities, will provide the tools by which communities will gain self respect, self sufficiency and sustainability. If done on a coordinated basis, the people of Haiti will benefit greatly, as will their children and future generations.
