We are teaming up with our good friends at BonaResponds to provide an audio podcast called HaitianHappenings. It will have information about what is Happening in Haiti (hence Haitian Hapenings ;) ), talks with Haitians, volunteers, NGO leaders, school principals, and most importantly students who we (you!) have helped provide scholarships for.
Our hope is to have a new show every week. It will be a great way to keep in touch with Haiti, find out ways you can help, and hear how your donations are making an impact.
The purpose of the podcast is to give people a sense of what is happening in Haiti and to be able to follow their donations to see how they are helping Haitians.
We will try to do a different podcast weekly (maybe more, maybe less) depending on time and interest.
Kicking off the podcasts will be today's interview with Jean Kendy Estimphil of Leogane Haiti. I had the pleasure of meeting Jean Kendy last year in Haiti and he has helped both BonaResponds and HaitiScholarships immensely both in translation, and being our person on the ground for distribution of supplies (the link is a set of pictures)."
