PPAF works tirelessly and diligently to achieve its objectives. Their efforts are inspiring and serve to foster wide collaboration and support across organizations, age and other demographics. I am personally a supporter of PPAF, as well as, organizationally, a partner in the implementation of the clean fuels and cook stoves project for Haiti. Understanding the need for capacity-building and collaboration is critical to advance socio-economic development in Haiti as well as elsewhere, and PPAF's approach fosters such collaboartion in a respectful and mutually beneficial way. Vision, dedication, expertise -- PPAF.

Art Creation Foundation For Children in Jacmel is, in a sense, a client and colleague organization. As well, I personally am a suppoter. I am delighted to know and work with PPA, for their knowledge, willingness to share and collaborate, and for their genuine concern for the people in Haiti with whom we also work. We are emissaries for each other's organizations and a part of the whole that we wish for tomorrow.
