Haiti 2016

Sharing & Encouraging Creativity

Les Cayes, Haiti  2016

I spent 3 weeks this summer, 2016, in Les Cayes, Haiti, helping Catherine Roux with a village feeding program and an enrichment program for street boys.  

It was an unexpected invitation which turned into such a wonderful time of sharing and connection.  

I had the inspiration to create “Trash to Treasure” sustainable projects for the street boys.  

They learned how to turn discarded soda bottles into strong cord/rope.  

They learned how to crochet with a variety of “thread” such as discarded clothing, t-shirts, inexpensive dyed string.  

With a simple chain stitch and a single crochet stitch, they learned to crochet rugs and tote bags.

They also had the opportunity to experience mixed-media with paint and collage. 

  I introduced the young man who was teaching the boys how to make coconut jewelry, to wire work to add to his jewelry and to teach the boys.  

I had the most amazing time and developed some wonderful relationships.  

I have many more ideas and dreams to pursue.  Will it be in Haiti?  We shall see…..
