March 21, 2007 Maniche, Haiti …We drove to a remote spot where there were a few shacks on the mountainside and walked to a meeting area where the members of the organization called ADZK were singing and clapping as loud as they could…I took pictures of the kids again with the digital camera and then let them look at them on the screen. It seems to be a good way to interact after we get past "what is your name?" and "mwen pa pale Kreyol" [I don't speak Creole]. I wonder how many of these kids have seen their picture before. Lambi funded and trained the group for a pig breeding project. They had 25 new piglets so far. A woman said, "Pigs allow us to live, that is the way we take care of our kids and all of our needs."… There are good things happening in Haiti.
