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.

BY KENNON CALHOUN
IN NASHVILLE

James Kennon speaks about his work with The Joseph School in Haiti. On the island of Haiti of the 9.2 million people, 80% live below the International Poverty Line equating to 7.4 million people with an average income of less than $2 per day. Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere. The most impactful way to help Haiti is to empower them to help themselves. Leadership changes everything.

Tilling Fallow Land: How school gardens can be integral to the next generation of public schools.

BY ELIAS ATTEA
@ VOL 14 ON FEB 12, 2015

For a child, a garden is more than a greenspace.  It can be a place for peace, learning, and ownership. School gardens have been a revisited movement that have caught much momentum in the United States, and Pond Gap Elementary is a local advocate.  Horticultural pedagogy is more than just seeing plants grow.  School gardens can be an alternative to a more natural and tangible outlet for school curriculum, therapy, and physical and emotional development.
