117 PechaKucha Night cities came together to raise money for reconstruction in Haiti on the 20th of February, 2010, just 4 weeks after the earthquake. Raising $79,000 for Architecture for Humanity, the money has helped build a school, which opened in November of 2011.

Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, One Year On
BY CAMERON SINCLAIR
IN SAN FRANCISCO
What a difference a year makes. Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti raised over $80,000 on the 20th February 2010 for Architecture for Humanity. Our aim was to raise enough money to rebuild one of the devastated schools in Haiti, so today, one year on we are very proud to say that dream is becoming a reality. Thanks to all the amazing efforts of Cameron Sinclair and Architecture for Humanity they have begun to rebuild schools in Haiti, one of which is directly funded by Global PechaKucha Day. To mark the occasion, and let you see progress Cameron has put together an update, in a 20x20 presentation, where you can see the design for the Ecole La Dignite, the school you have funded, taking shape. After you have watched the presentation you will understand that the money we raised has been put to use very effectively. If you can we encourage you all to continue to support the long haul AFH mission mission in Haiti, you can find the pages here.
