Just sending out a reminder…agenda linked here
Please share with anyone local working in Haiti.  Please also add your

We’ve had one person volunteer to make some Haitian food and I will try to
make pikles and banan frit.  St. Joe’s will provide other (non-Haitian)
dinner items.  Looking forward to meeting you all!  Kenbe fem pa lage!

*Haiti Networking Event*

Friday, May 12, 2017


St. Joseph’s House of Hospitality

402 South Avenue, Rochester

*Rochester-Haiti Connections: * So many local Rochester groups collaborate
with groups in Haiti!  We might be able to share resources, facilitate
networking and communication, provide advice or consultation in our group’s
specialties, or co-host events such as speakers, discussions or Kreyol
lessons.  When I lived in Haiti I was part of a similar group called the
Cap Haitien Health Network, which serves as an inspiration for setting up
something here in Rochester.

*Networking:*  Please join us for this Rochester-Haiti networking event
(and an early celebration of Fèt Drapo) on May 12 to learn about the
projects other groups are working on!  We’ll provide some food--maybe even
some Haitian food--and some space and time for representatives of local
groups working in Haiti to share about their programs.

*Information:*  Please RSVP to sabeie at rit.edu if your group can send a
representative.  Whether you can come or not, please add your groups’ info
to this Google Doc so we can collect all the local groups who work in
Haiti:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1m800_-

*Please share* this event with others who work in Haiti,

*We hope that you can join us* and bring your favorite Haitian proverb!
“Yon sèl dwèt pa ka mange kalalou.” (You can’t eat okra with one finger.)
