Haiti is rebuilding. Streets are busy, commerce is underway, day laborers pound fallen concrete walls into small pebbles suitable for repaving the streets. All the major NGOs from the Clinton Foundation to the United Nations, are active in the capital, Port-au-Prince.
Mercy Beyond Borders is also investing in the future of Haiti--but not in bricks and mortar, and not in the capital city. We're investing in Haiti's human capital and we are doing so in the rural mountains north of Port-au-Prince. To be more specific, we're investing in young Haitian women by giving them academic scholarships. These young women, we believe, will become Haiti's future teachers, medical personnel, law-makers, and business owners. They will value education for their families. They will help Haiti heal.
