Haiti Post January 12, 2010: Challenges Faced When Moving From Relief to Reconstruction
Dr. Sara Baird Amodio
, President, Launch Educational Services LLC, shares her experiences as an Educational Consultant to education focused Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) working to rebuild educational capacity in Haiti
Following the earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince, Haiti, legions of international relief agencies, estimated to number close to 10,000, flooded the capital to provide emergency services. Now, more than 15 months later, Haiti is still in emergency mode, still has the infamous tent cities, and remains at a virtual standstill. While highlighting the challenges Haiti still faces, Dr. Amodio will provide insights into areas where Haiti can now begin to envision reconstruction and a new future based on self determination, education and the basic tenets of civil society.
In early May, Sara visited Haiti and will have very current information about the situation on the ground.
