HAITI:  ORGANIZING the HAITIAN INIATIVE

Faculty Leadership: Pierre Elysee & Magdy Ellabidy

Computer Science Faculty & Students Help survivors learn to build a stronger Haiti “We need to empower Haitians to contribute to the reconstruction of their own country,’’ said Pierre Arthur Elysee, an assistant professor at Wentworth and a Port-au-Prince native who helped found the “Train the Trainer’’ program. “This is one of the more significant efforts toward the rebuilding of Haiti.’’
After the January quake, Elysee and Wentworth colleague Magdy Ellabidy were intent on helping in any way possible. While a flood of food and clothing donations poured into the country, the two noticed that little attention was being paid to a problem that has dogged Haiti for years: shoddy construction.
