4 out of 10 Haitians Are Under The Age Of 14?

The Haitian population is booming and this is a big problem. Four in 10 Haitians are under the age of 14... Did you know that?

According to an article I just read, the Haitian population is growing by almost 2 percent each year.

That means, assuming that there are really 9 million people in Haiti, 180,000 babies are born each year.

It may not seem like a lot but... in 10 years, that 1.8 million mouths to feed!

Good for Western Union and CAM Transfert...
BAD for us here in the Diaspora...

Who's going to feed them? The unemployment rate in Haiti is 70-80%!
Please don't shoot the messenger...

Here is another fact for you...

The population in Port-au-Prince (3 million strong) is expected to DOUBLE in the next 15 years!

Nota Bene...

Haiti has a very large Diaspora too... You think it is worth taking that into account?

I mean, I live in the Diaspora and I got TWO kids... Under 14 LOL....

My brothers and sisters... They... Ohhhh Boy... We have a small army... LOL


What does this all mean to you and to the future of Haiti?
