Nouvelle Vie Haiti Youth Corps

This week I learned about some very impressive service projects. One of them is Nouvelle Vie Haiti Youth Corps. Nouvelle Vie is French for "new life". Volunteers from the International Association for Human Values (IAHV) are helping Haitian youth heal their own people, revive their land, and build their future.

Nouvelle Vie is based on:

Yoga and Meditation: participants are reporting that for the first time in months, they were able to sleep peacefully. Trauma relief at the individual level is the first step to recovery and rebuilding.

Community empowerment: Haitian youth are trained to offer trauma relief and sustainable community development on a mass scale.

Permaculture: Sustainable land use and waste management.

Watch the video below to learn more about Nouvelle Vie, and make sure to like Nouvelle Vie on Facebook.
