Latrine Project in Gressier, Haiti
Dr. Frantz Codio, a native Haitian and a long-time friend of Haiti Share was deeply concerned about a neighborhood in Gressier, Haiti, which consists of around 100 families living in a sandy area between the highway and the sea without any toilets, either indoor or outdoor. He involved the community in planning a project to build a latrine and asked the engineer teach some of the young men in the community how to build the toilet and supervise them during the process. Community involvement, teaching and training - this is a method of helping that resonates with Haiti Share's vision, so Haiti Share was pleased to help with the financial support for this project.
