Meet C2C Neighbor: Amelia T.
Why did you become a C2C Neighbor?
I traveled to Haïti with C2C in August of 2013. The people of Petit Goâve left an indelible impression on my sense of what community is and how it is forged. Since this trip I have desired to do more to help C2C support the overall development of this region. I am grateful to be a neighbor to demonstrate my commitment to the success of the people of Petit Goâve.
What is your hope for the people of Petit Goâve?
My hope for the people of Petit Goâve is the hope I have for myself and my family – to see them achieve all for which they have been destined, to thrive and be of service to others.
What have you seen in terms of progress for C2C over the last 5 years??
I have seen C2C make significant progress on two key fronts: 1) I personally witnessed community members plant seedlings on the mountainside as part of the reforestation efforts; and 2) C2C continues toward its goal of a completed water distribution system.
When you become a C2C Neighbor you move from being a spectator to being a participant!
You will impact lasting change for generations to come.
We need 35 New C2C Neighbors to meet our goal of 100 by Dec 31st!
Community2Community (C2C) is a 501c3 non-profit, service organization dedicated to creating self-sufficient communities by working with the community.
On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck and devastated the island nation of Haïti. In 35 seconds, over 300,000 people lost their lives and more than 1.5 million lost their homes.
Just over eight months later, The New York Times reported that 1.3 million people were displaced in 1300 camps. When the cholera outbreak hit, clean potable water became the priority, but there are many more things that need to be done to help this nation get back on its feet.
