Potable Water makes La Difference

On Sunday the 12th of June, 2011, LGF Haiti joined partners IOM and Green Venues to celebrate the official launch of Haiti’s first joint clean water and recycling initiative in Cite Soleil’s breathtaking community, La Difference.

Self-motivated to create a clean and engaged neighborhood in one of Haiti’s most challenging slums, La Difference celebrated by hosting an afternoon series of spectacular theatrical, musical and dance performances.

These inspiring young artists channeled a message to promote recycling, cleanliness and water education, and encouraged neighboring communities to do the same.

The ceremony closed with the ribbon cutting of La Difference’s privately-owned potable water kiosk, installed by LGF Haiti.

And, as members of the community, supporters and friends raised a glass of cold water together, LGF Haiti could not have been more proud to a part of this beautiful initiative.
