Souper Sunday with Hope and Change for Haiti

Join us for The Collective's April Souper Sunday! Each month a guest speaker will offer a discussion on a topic that relates to social justice and/or human rights and The Collective will provide delicious homemade soups.

This month we are very excited to host Aniece Germain, Assistant Director of Hope and Change for Haiti, a local non-profit organization led by group of Haitian-American professionals concerned about the condition of life of Haitian Community, and Haiti. Hope and Change for Haiti works to contribute to the effort of rebuilding the country and facilitate the recovery of the people from natural disasters.

Aniece was born and raised in Haiti, and moved to the United States in 2009 after she escaped from a life-threatening situation. Like the majority of children who grew up in Haiti, she experienced extreme limited access to basic needs such as food, water, clothing, healthcare, and decent living space. Despite her limited options for schools in Haiti, she was able to attend the State University of Haiti where she completed a degree in Science of Communication majoring in journalism. Aniece worked as a reporter in a daily newspaper and also anchored a television show. In 2007, she accepted a position as communication technician at the Ministry of Condition Feminine and Women’s Rights in Haiti.
We are excited to hear more about Aniece's story and learn about Hope and Change for Haiti!
