Project Description

Did you know that nonviolent protests are twice as likely to succeed as armed conflicts? – and those engaging a threshold of 3.5% of the population have never failed to bring about change.”  Of the 12 million people in Haiti, 3.5% is only 420,000

Kafou Lespwa brought together 60 diverse, influential, and committed leaders to use a rigorous methodology to co-create 3 scenarios of possible futures for Haiti.  We facilitated the base for systemic social transformation. This work was 100% supported by Haitian resources, from over 30 companies.  It has the support of the communities implicated. 

That 3.5% is attainable with a systematic increase in active participants, WITH YOUR CONTRIBUTION. 

I created Replenish 509 to leverage the cultural economy to enable more people to be part of collective effort to transform Haiti.  We are working for the "Soley Leve" scenario where a conscious, united, and committed community gathered around a shared vision of sustainable and inclusive development will lead to social transformation.

WHAT Replenish 509 is ABOUT:

  1. WE BUILD BRIDGES between transformation work in progress and social entrepreneurs to innovate socio-economic impact.  
  2. WE SHAPE THE NARRATIVE about Haiti by promoting its culture and the collaborations in progress.  

WHAT WE DO:

  1. Connect to Replenish – our virtual exchange program where participants connect regularly, in a structured way. 
    • We discuss the cultural nuances and explore concrete ways to collaborate and support vetted initiatives in Haiti.  Participants learn to better navigate networks in Haiti and connect with socially conscious individuals to further the collective effort. 
  2. Replenish Ayiti – we sell a variety of products Made-In-Haiti
    • We work with entrepreneurs to improve their quality standards, marketing and packaging, and corporate social responsibility practices to reach other markets.  
  3. Reviv Ayiti – where we create video productions and social media content showcasing cultural values of Tèt Ansanm (collective efforts) and artistic ingenuity. 
    • Through exclusive meetings and public events, we enable people to experience Haitian culture and learn more about initiatives nurturing collective efforts. 

Please support this crowdfunding campaign to raise $40,000 for Replenish 509.  Each of the rewards are connected to the work we do and will give you a taste of what’s to come next.

A special thank you to Kafou Lespwa, FOKAL (Soros Open Society Foundation Haiti), and the New Orleans African American Museum. 

The future is on the horizon, let's create ripple effects together.  We count on your support!

Mèsi anpil!
