Haiti Success Stories
Haiti. “My name is Emmanuel Paul. I am from a rural region of Haiti. I completed my studies in Food Science and Technology in 2016. I co-founded a corporation in 2016 that works with farmers and rural women on agro-entrepreneurship and agro-processing to create added value on farms in northern Haiti. I discovered a Facebook posting describing the “Master in the Street” course in October 2019, and I quickly grasped the opportunity.
Haiti. Like many Ambassadors, when Jean Godenson came in contact with Interweave Solutions, he had no idea how it would impact his life. He was working in North Sudan and traveling back to Haiti every few months to visit his wife and young son. As he searched for work opportunities for an educated Haitian, he came across Interweave at a freelancing job site, looking for help translating some materials into French Creole. As he worked on translating the materials, Jean realized there might be more for him and the people in Haiti. He said “We did the work and I loved the materials and asked how I could get involved. Here I am today as the first Interweave Success Ambassador in Haiti. What a beautiful and exciting journey!”
After going through the MBS course and the Success Ambassador course for himself, Jean became Interweave’s only Success Ambassador in the Caribbean. “Becoming a success Ambassador is an answer to my prayers asking God to connect me with like-minded people and an organization in Haiti to help move people from poverty to self reliance and prosperity. I am excited for the opportunity to share vividly something that will change lives for the better. It did make a huge impact on mine, and it is still improving, as I practice the godly principles in those trainings.”
Jean is currently facilitating a group of 40 youth who will graduate in December.
