An Editor's Journey: Return to Haiti
Moy, Yvette
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v29 n5 p14-17 Apr 2012
This paper recounts the author's story as she returned to Haiti in February to join a building project near Port-Au-Prince and to document efforts by U.S. higher education institutions to help the country rebound from the devastating 2010 earthquake. The author describes how consortiums have been formed in order to support the development of the island's public university network in the region. Yet, the 5-month-old Haitian government led by President Michel Martelly still struggles to make good on its promises of moving people out of camps by supplying loans to rebuild homes. Free education for 900,000 children is expected to come from taxing money transfers and international calls from cell phone providers such as Digicel. Other pipeline schools such as the Village of Hope are run by nonprofits.
