Daily life in Baille Tourible

November 21, 2017

Mikaël Theimer is a volunteer photographer for KANPE. During his last travel in Haiti, he visited Baille Tourible for a few days. Through his photos, he shares the daily life of the members of this community supported by KANPE.

Travelling to Baille Tourible by car is definitely not for the faint of heart! Despite driving a big 4×4 SUV, we bounced from left to right along rocky terrain for the entire 2-hour journey (for 22 km) – That day I finally understood what those handles at the top of car windows are for! Eventually we found ourselves in the heart of the Central Plateau mountains, and the breathtaking landscapes made every bump in the backseat (and the behind) worth it. Then when we met locals who regularly make the round trip on foot, like this woman, it became impossible to complain about a rough ride…  Mikaël Theimer

KANPE stands with the most vulnerable Haitian families towards their financial autonomy. To do this, we work with Haitian partner organizations, each with complementary expertise, that bring their knowledge, tools, and required training to get these communities on the path to autonomy.

Our actions focus on the Haitian population, identifying and expressing their needs. Together with the community and local partners we support their initiatives, focusing on six pillars which enable autonomy: health, nutrition, entrepreneurship, agriculture, education, and leadership.

Thank you for supporting our actions in Haiti.
