Dear Darren and Rick, we very much valued your insightful questions and the passion and interest you have to make a difference to the lives of the children in Haiti.
We have put together some resources about Haiti, about Frontier Projects and about the very people and projects where you could make an incredible difference in the lives of hundreds of children, through your expertise and influence.
Firstly: you asked about the history of oppression & poverty in Haiti. Who are these people that so desperately need our help? This short, historical summary explains so much...
Secondly: Who is Frontier Projects Haiti? A quick snapshot.
So, Bouvier School and community is a 6-hour treck, following a 2 hour four-wheel drive from Port au Prince, Haiti. There are many ways that you could partner with us to make a radical difference in these children's and teacher's lives. Below are a few ideas. It would also be an incredible experience to SEND or REWARD one or more trainers from Function Well, to join us IN HAITI to train these teachers, so that the teachers themselves could then train the children in Nutrition and in Movement and Exercise!
These are the eight teachers at Bouvier School, who would deeply value any training they could receive about Movement and / or Nutrition
Here we can see the long, narrow area that the children have for playing and for assemblies and exercise and sports fun.
Finally, we have also now become listed with Good2Give. This platform enables employees of companies that will partner with us, the opportunity to connect with the VALUES of the company they are part of and an avenue to make a positive difference at a local or global level.
Food for thought: how to frame up and lead our clients and members into thinking beyond ourselves as a corporate influencer:
It is very important to all of us at Function Well to partner with and support organisations and programs that, through diverse social enterprise and engagement initiatives, are having a profound impact on the lives of the people in our community and the global community, who need it most. We act local. We impact global.
