The Haitian proverb says “Don’t throw rocks at a green mango.” I’m a green mango. I’m a lover of all people, a hater of bad fashion, and an advocate for better practices in aid work. I write because I believe we need a new way to talk about Aid, Charity, Humanitarianism, Mission, Philanthropy and all such noble forms of helping and good doing. I’m constantly learning, discovering, and developing as a human being in this big messed up world. I’m no expert on anything but in this blog I share my opinions based on my experience currently living and working in Haiti. I am also an artist, storyteller, and activist always searching for new ways to express the beauty and the tragedy that I encounter along the way. I am a green mango. Don’t throw a rock at me yet.
I am a freelancer at almost all that I do. I don’t get paid by any organization to do what I do. I am simply an artist and a writer who lives in Haiti and tries to share what I learn along the way of living this life here. So if you appreciate what you find on this blog, please consider making a donation to help me keep doing just that. I can’t tell you how much I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
You can also subscribe to partner with me on a monthly basis. Monthly partners will be added to my monthly newsletters with exclusive updates from my life and work in Haiti. They will also have access throughout the year to special events for covenant partners.
