Create Doers For Haiti

Hey everyone, this video is part of 10 clips I am doing to give you ten of the reasons why a leadership campus is a must for Haiti.

So today I will start with number 10. The order doesn’t really matter, it’s just my top ten, and perhaps you can also send me your reasons why we should have a place with the sole purpose of creating better leaders for Haiti.

So, at number 10 is doers.  We need doers, people who will create opportunities in Haiti not only for themselves but for others. It’s evident that our children are being raised with a consumer mindset and unfortunately even the few with opportunities and abilities are being raised in the same way.

This is why you hear a lot about lack of opportunities in Haiti, because we don’t inspire our children to be opportunity creators. Our children are raised and educated to wait for opportunities. It’s time we change that!

Now, I understand not everyone will be an opportunity creator, but we must find ways to instill in our children that opportunities don’t just happen, they are created, and we believe in their ability to create opportunities right where they are, in their country. 

So the leadership campus will be a place to get their creative juices flowing, equip them with the tools and leadership skills they need to move from the consumer mindset to being doers.

I am counting on your contribution to make it happen. Let’s create the next generation of leaders to help transform Haiti.

Nou vle edike tèt, nanm, ak kè chak timoun, yon fason pou yo konn kiyès yo ye, renmen pwochen yo, fyè de peyi yo e travay pou li. Se tou yon mouvman pou valorize karaktè, konpetans, ak entèlijans. N ap travay pou talan nou yo jwenn oswa kreye posibilite kote yo ye a. E sila ki deyò yo, n ap chouchoute yo e kreye yon klima favorab pou yo vin itilize konesans yo pou amelyore lakay. #EdikeAyisyenPouAyiti #Ayisyen365

I will put the collective before self. I will not engage in drive-by-charity, instead I will contribute my talent, resources and knowledge to help transform Haiti from the inside out. I understand this will not be easy and will take time, but I am committed to leave a better Haiti than what I found. So help me God! | Mwen jire pou'm kanpe pou Ayiti. M'ap mete interè komen anvan interè pèsonèl. Mwen pap angaje nan charite frivòl, men pito, M'ap itilize talan'm, resous ak konesans mwen pou transfòme Ayiti nan tout integralite'l. Mwen konprann sa pap fasil e sa ap pran tan, men mwen sèmante pou'm kite deyè yon Ayiti miyò. Ke Bondye ede'm!
