The 'Haiti Communitere' Makerspace

In Haiti a more apt model for development, Haiti Communitere, Liberia and Somalia next?

Haiti Communitere operates the Sustainability Resource Center in Port au Prince. Located walking distance from the international airport our center works as a hub for international groups to launch pilot projects, manage on the ground projects and network with other similarly focused in country groups. We pride ourselves in lowering overhead costs while redistributing revenue back to Haitian initiated projects. Our Community Liaison works directly with community groups finding driven members of their community that just need that extra something to make their idea a reality. Working together is the only way we are able to assure our resource center and our community assistance programs address the actual needs and desires of beneficiaries.After the jump their indiegogo fundraiser
