KREYOL: Haiti Réflexion -- Nèg la vle travay, nèg la ka travay, men chak jou Bondye mete, li chita devan lakay li, li pa jjwen ANYEN pou l fè... Peyi Dayiti pa gen travay... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Jean, let's call him Jean, is a father of four. He is "Chofè Camion" (truck driver). Everyday Jean wakes up, he has no truck to drive and therefore brings no money home.

Everyday, he sit on the front porch of his house hoping a truck owner comes by and hire him for the day.

Jean says if only he could earn a few hundred gourdes everyday, guaranteed, he would be a happy man. Instead he is daydreaming about, leaving Haiti one day, go to another country, find a job, any job, to make money and send back home to his family.

What advice can you give to Jean in this case?

What do you think about that?

Haitian people should learn to drive so can rent a taxi or a bus to transport students to school, patients to hospitals and clinics, transport people to churches, markets, etc. Young Haitians could have a part time drivers jobs during the weekends or 4 hours a day and still go to school to learn a profession, if their parents have no money to take care of them. They should create after school programs from 4 to 8 PM for tutors to help students with their school work in every sector like Thurgeau, Bois Verna, Carrefour, Carrefour feuille.
