“The Road to Fondwa” / A spotlight on a rural Haitian village

“A better Haiti is possible … and indeed, it is on the way.”
Father Joseph Philippe / Fondwa, Haiti

Up against centuries of oppression and decimated natural resources, the people of Fondwa have taken matters into their own hands. Leaders and dreamers and dedicated workers. Children, mothers, priests, and students. Haitians, Cubans, Americans, and French — all pitching in for a better tomorrow.

With unprecedented access to the entire Fondwa community, The Road to Fondwa weaves the seasoned voices and stunning imagery of Fondwa into a tangible story that challenges the status quo of international development and seeks to inspire a new paradigm of international cooperation — one founded on true partnership and understanding.
