Haiti can learn a lot from Rwanda... Read this...

Rwanda is a county no one expected would recover after the 1994 genocide where an estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994. But it did. Rwanda has guarded its political stability since the genocide, the world bank said.

Rwanda, as a nation, has a vision called "Vision 2020" where its long-term development goals are defined. Vision 2020 is a strategy that seeks to transform Rwanda from a low-income, agriculture-based economy to a knowledge-based, service-oriented economy with middle-income country status by 2020.

Vision 2020, a government development program in Rwanda, launched in 2000 by Rwandan president Paul Kagame, is really what has everyone talking about Rwanda these days. They got together and they pulled through as a nation.

This one thing I truly wish Haiti can learn from Rwanda. I was hoping that a new vision would come out of the rubble of the 2010 Haitian earthquake but, so far, I don't any sign that Haitian politicians want to agree on a single vision for Haiti.
