Haiti Youth Education Charity Work

In the course of my travels, I went to Haiti (Haiti photos) a few years back to meet with Sharon Gaskell, who was working with young students in Cap-Haitien. It was one of the most challenging trips I have ever taken, and I still marvel that anyone would choose to spend time there, under difficult conditons.

Since that time, I have been working with her to set up Starthrower Foundation and its web site. The photo here of the Haiti taptap (bus) is one I took on that trip.

On Saturday, the Toronto (Canada) Star printed an article about Sharon and Starthrower Foundation, and as volunteer webmaster for the charity, I have been dealing with the resulting queries for more information.

If you'd like to know more about Starthrower and what you can do to help them help a student in Haiti, drop by the web site.
