Myrlande at the heart of KANPE’s actions in Baille Tourible

March 21, 2022

Chargée de projet chez KANPE en Haïti depuis février 2020, Myrlande est au coeur de nos actions sur le terrain en offra

Myrlande has been a Project manager at KANPE in Haiti since February 2020. She is at the heart of our actions in the field, offering her support to our program director, Fritz Louis, and to the organization of our activities.

Holder of a nursing diploma, she has actively participated in the life of the Baille Tourible community and the foundation from its beginnings by providing her services to the Cholera Treatment Unit at the Baille Tourible clinic between 2012 and 2013. The ties with KANPE have grown stronger with time and with food as the whole team always remembers the succulent dishes prepared by Myrlande during our various trips to the field.

Mother of two daughters, Myrlande spends her time between Thomonde where she has her residence and Baille Tourible.  She is known and appreciated at Baille Tourible. She has been involved, on a voluntary basis, in almost all of the flagship activities of the community such as the establishment of the experimental farm, the summer camp, and the creation of the association of young leaders.

Today, she rejoices in the vitality of the community and proudly lists all the progress made over the past ten years:

  • Retention of young people in school thanks to the band
  • Reduction of early pregnancies
  • Reduction of women’s deaths in childbirth
  • Creation of jobs
  • Strengthening of local associations
  • Etc…

Before becoming an essential member of the KANPE family, Myrlande worked for more than ten years in the health sector in Haiti, notably for organizations like World Vision and Entrepreneurs du monde. Additionally, she worked with the  Cholera Treatment Center of the Zanmi Lasante clinic in Thomonde (Central Plateau, Haiti).
