It is no secret that huge parts of Haiti lack clean, healthy, and safe living conditions, clean water, free education, jobs, healthcare, police protection, and for some citizens, an overall relative place in the nation. Instead of wasting time, however, on griping and rationalizing over why these conditions exists, our team at ATL4Haiti seeks to take action by educating the city of Atlanta on ways in which we can readily and easily impact lives in need. (This is not to take the honace off of the Haitian government which is equally, if not more, responsible in ensuring the prosperous progression of its nation.)
ATL4Haiti believes in the uniting of family and community. Our concerns not only lie in providing relief to those in Haiti, but also, to those right here in our own city. We envision the building of various partnerships with other cause-driven organizations, colleges, and universities, in an effort to create and carry-out diverse initiatives, focused on providing essential, educational, economical, and health resources which will benefit all lives involved.
We desire to focus on the shaping of both spiritual and lively aspects which prove that neither Haiti, nor other similar nations, are the S#%!-hole countries that some perceive them to be. More important, our team recognizes that Haiti, along with the many African diasporic nations, is our true family, regardless of how “far-removed” we’ve been conditioned to believe we are. We are one, and it is our duty to take care of one another, one change at a time.
