In honour of Malala Day 2013, we thought we'd share why we believe education for Haitian girls is so important.
After months of research, planning and collaboration with stakeholders in Port-au-Prince and beyond, we presented our school design process of the last three years for feedback on our approach, the resulting plans, and the effect of the films we’re making to document our process.
Check out the event’s photo album here and sign up to our mailing list for news of the next chance to attend screenings of our documentary material, and give feedback.
Goodbye HTML goobledygook, hello content management system! We are delighted to announce the launch of our new website, lovingly and voluntarily crafted by Chris Jamieson at www.meliorenterprises.com.
Now that we have much more control over the site, we'd love your suggestions for what we should be communicating and how we could do it better. We are only in the early stages of developing our video gallery and project information, so now's the time to take on your feedback and develop it with as much input as possible!
After months of research, planning and collaboration, we have finalised our sustainable and replicable school design for urban Haiti with the community in Port-au-Prince. To showcase the result and to highlight the final pieces of the puzzle needed to make this innovative education project a reality, we are inviting you to a very special reception at the University of London on December 6th.
One year after the disastrous earthquake hit Haiti, Thinking Development launched a special earthquake anniversary booklet on 12 January, 2011. Collected Reflections gathered anniversary statements from organisations working in Haiti or monitoring the country in a concise and digestible format. It brought together messages from groups as varied as DG ECHO, Internews, CDAC Haiti, The Haiti Support Group and the New Internationalist. The booklet is available for download here.
