Haiti Community - The Haitian man wants to work but there's nothing to do

How many young Haitian men do you know in Haiti who wake up everyday with every desire to do something for a living but, everyday, find NOTHING to do? Meet Jean the Truck Driver...

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?
