Greg (see Monday’s post) introduced me to a very engaged discussion forum, Haiti Rewired, where he posed the very important question, “What are Haitian’s feelings about volunteers from abroad?” I am at times in fear of being a part of an effort that is imposing a way and a future on Haiti when, for the cost of my plane ticket down here, several Haitian families could have built themselves a home or whatever they so choose. Here I am helping to build some schools. Twenty years from now, these schools will have started to rot apart and I, and the All-Hands organization, will be long gone. While there are certain skills that we are passing on to the community, and children will learn aplenty in these classrooms, I can’t help but wonder how little of a sustainable impact I am making. As I frustrate over this question, I will help myself sleep at night by knowing that at least this little guy is happy to see me.
