Today we are remembering Haiti, two years to the day after a devastating 7.0 earthquake further devastated the country and took the lives of over 300,000 people. Since 2007, we have been working with the people of Haiti to bring clean cookstoves and reforestation projects to communities in need. Together, with our partner organizations Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT), International Lifeline Fund (ILF), and Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL), we are empowering communities to better manage their precious natural resources through improved technology (i.e. clean cookstoves) and community-led reforestation projects.
These photos show a glimpse of the progress TWP and partners have made since the 2010 earthquake. After a period of rebuilding, reorganization, and forming solid partnerships, we have made huge strides in developing a sustainable clean cookstove project that creates local employment, directly improving the social and economic well-being of hundreds of Haitian families.
We are continually humbled by the strength and resiliency of the Haitian people and look forward to the years ahead. Thank you to everyone who has supported these important projects.
