3rd Annual Haiti Track at Movement Day 2012 ~ TWO DAY TRACK
“Redeveloping Haiti: Partnering for Strategic Impact”
Hilton NY Hotel
Thursday, September 27th 12:45pm-3:45pm and Friday, September 28th 8:00am-4:00pm
We recently received the following very special letter from our friend Marie-Yolaine Eusebe from Community2Community:
Dear Friends of Haiti,
As many of you know, shortly after the January 2010 Haiti Earthquake, I resigned my position at American Express to start Community2Community. I was eager to learn about non-profit development work and even more eager to learn the best way to help the people in Haiti to get on the road to self-sufficiency. A colleague sponsored me to attend Movement Day that same year and attend their Haiti Track.
This year will be my third year in attendance at the Movement Day Haiti Track. I keep coming back to be inspired, network with others on the ground and hone my skills as a leader by getting access to those who are doing it the right way. What I’ve learned, I’ve promoted and put into practice. Click here for my video testimonial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2VOP8Dzgkk&feature=youtu.be.
Here’s the program:
