HAPI video shoot

New “Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Haiti” Video

Here is the first video from our weeklong shoot in Haiti “Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Haiti.” It was a real collaboration:

The purpose of the video is to provide an overview of the comprehensive and woman-based approach Haitian Artisans for Peace International (HAPI) takes to poverty alleviation in rural Mizak, a town in the mountains of Southeast Haiti. The video will be included in a newsletter on Wednesday to help incentivize people to contribute to HAPI on #GivingTuesday. 

Next time I stretch my capabilities to take on a new task, I’m going to take a look at this video. It will remind me that I can indeed do a new thing! As readers of this blog know, I approached the task with some trepidation. While I had participated in commercial shoots as a client, I had never actually written or produced a video. But I jumped in feet first and got it done, with a lot of help from my talented friends and all the people at HAPI.

It also might help to consult the bible on occasions of self-doubt. This week my pastor preached on Isaiah 43:19.Isaiah 43:19. verse

I think somebody is trying to tell me something!
