The Siloe Project dba Pazapa
October 19, 2010
I may be biased, but I believe Pazapa is playing a very important role in Haiti as the only combined school/vocational training/health program for the disabled in the country. It is a model that deserves to be expanded and replicated further. I've known Pazapa since I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Haiti from 2000-2002. There would be a major gap in assistance without Pazapa, especially now in post earthquake Haiti. It is an organization well worth supporting.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the extent to which they have been able to support disabled children and their families and knowing what more they could with increased human and financial resources.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
secure, equip, and fortify a large building that could accomodate a growing number of students while providng them with a safe place to learn and play.
