Daoudi to speak in North Hatley
The Unitarian Universalist Church of North Hatley has invited local humanitarian Yannick Daoudi to speak about his recent work in the country of Haiti following the devastating earthquake in January of 2010. Shortly after the earthquake, Mr. Daoudi, who has several humanitarian micro-projects already going on in different locations around the world, travelled to Haiti to see what kind of a project he could initiate in that region. After learning that the earthquake destroyed 80% of the schools in Port-au-prince, building a school for fifty of the most underprivileged children, from ages 6 to 10, soon became Yannick’s project.
All of the school supplies for the fifty children have already been collected and now Mr. Daoudi is raising funds to buy the land on which to build the school. “Without education, the vicious circle of poverty will keep on perpetuating,” writes Mr. Daoudi on his website Postcards from the edge, where you can also learn more about the Haiti project and his other humanitarian projects.
The free presentation, entitled “Humanitarianism in my sight”, will be held on Sunday, October 30th, at 10:00 am. Refreshments will be served following Mr. Daoudi’s presentation. Everyone is welcome.
Yannick Daoudi, of Lennoxville, seen here with some Haitian orphans, will speak in North Hatley this Sunday about his project to build a school in Haiti.
