Haitian Dreams in Port-au-prince

Pictures by Sebastien Roche-lochen

The boys at the orphanage had various dreams. A lot of them wanted to help rebuild their country and become architects, arborists and doctors. They were the kindest most respectful kids I have ever met. They were incredibly happy to receive their prints at the end of the day.

Haiti Day #2: Our first trip to an orphanage

Our trip in Haiti is starting out great! Yesterday, the driver we hired ended up taking us to an orphanage that his pastor is in charge of. There were more than 60 kids who made beautiful drawings for us and picked very interesting careers from Construction workers to arborists. The kid actually taught me that word because I had no idea what an arborist was!

Here's the group picture of all the kids holding their print at the end of the day.

Getting our Malaria pills

Today I was at the doctor's office to get my prescription for the pills against Malaria. We are officially leaving for Haiti next week and hope to bring back a lot of great pictures.

Thanks again to those of you who have been supporting us from the beginning.

Costumes and toys for our first trip

After a few donations from our wishlist and a few trips to our local stores, we have a collection of costumes and goodies to give to the kids when they participate in the project. We have a pilot hat, a police officer outfit, plastic cooking ustensils, construction tools, basketball players outfits, pens, crayons, and tons of cute clothes to give.

We also bought a portable photo printer that doesn't need to be plugged in which will be essential on our trips where we will be shooting in places where there will be no electricity.

We will be leaving soon but your help is always needed....Take a look at our wishlist, get inspired by it, look in your closet, or next time you stop by the 99 cents store, think of us and pick up a toy or something that will give a kid a smile when we go abroad.
