In spite of all the Non-Governmental Organizations working in Haiti, this community in and around Bonnette was falling between the cracks. Our efforts are requested, targeted and measurable.
Bonnette (pronounced Bow-net) is a village located in the West Department about an hour outside of Port-au-Prince. Bonnette is named after Guy Joseph Bonnet who was a Haitian historian and a major general in the Army of the Republic of Haiti. He was one of the signers of the Haitian Act of Independence, which formally declared Haiti independent from French colonial rule. This area of Haiti resembles a desert. It is dry and dusty with cacti and very little useful vegetation.
