Haiti has been dubbed "the Republic of NGOs" yet remains mired in poverty.
"As someone who has served and invested in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake, I now see this place and the people that I love with new lenses. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is called to give, serve, or live in Haiti."
-Tami Heim, President and CEO Christian Leadership Alliance
After the devastating earthquake in 2010, the eyes of the world were on Haiti and its plight as the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. Moved with compassion, many individuals and organizations made donations and promises to "build back better." Over a decade later, these promises have not materialized. Why does Haiti remain poor and underdeveloped despite receiving large amounts of foreign aid? In this book, you will find:
Inspiring stories of success
An eye-opening look into the world of humanitarian aid in Haiti
Empirical research about foreign aid in Haiti
How you can help transform Haiti in one generation
"Claudia Charlot provides a visceral image of life in Haiti, cutting to the heart of many common Western (mis)perceptions. This book has opened my eyes to new truths, and it will continue to remain among my go-to references for this topic."
- Shirley V. Hoogstra, J.D., President, Council for Christian Colleges & Universities
