I moved to Ghana five years ago because its my fathers country and I always wanted to come and give the little that i had gained over the years to empower my people to step out in confidence and to create employment.Also do skill training because I strongly believe if you teach someone a skill its for a lifetime the only way he/she will lose is if they lose their hands.

Micronesian Awareness Foundation



Micronesia is underrepresented and misunderstood. It was not even listed on the list of countries of origin. Some people are not from one of the 7 continents. Some people are from islands and atolls in the Pacific Ocean and still travel by the stars. The culture(s) and languages of Micronesia are at risk of extinction due to Westernization and annexation. Some people know so little about the place of their (or their parents and grandparents) birth because it is so far away and so difficult and expensive to travel to, however there is a wealth of love, culture, language, oral history, knowledge and family waiting them, if there was only a way to get back to the islands. The “opportunity” anticipated the many people here in the mainland USA never materialized and for some only materialized to a marginal degree and the finances needed to go back to family could never be accumulated. Unless the public is educated about the rich culture and history of Micronesia, it will never be captured in its fullness. Unless Micronesians in other places in the world (although mostly in the USA) are given assistance to go home again, they will never see their loved ones again. It is a crucial moment in the history of Micronesia to respond to this Diaspora and provide the information and tools for them to reconnect and feel the magic of their heritage.

I work independently work in communities and rural areas in assisting needy people by giving them legal counsel and advice especially to most vulnerable people like women and children not forgetting elder people.I have connections with well respected lawyers whom I work with by referring to them cases of those poor people who can not afford to hire a lawyer to present them.I also sensitize and educate communities of their legal rights to inherit deceased estate as it is becoming a norm in Malawi for members of a departed member to confiscate properties left behind from a widow and children as these people doesn’t have any idea of where to go to address their grievances.Monitoring employees if they are adhering to legal standards of employment according to the constitution of Malawi which condemns the employment of children and if the law is broken it is my responsibility to confront the lawbreaker and take necessary measures to address the matter to the necessary authorities.I also volunteer in any projects in my area of jurisdiction in projects and other functions which are legal in nature and work as a facilitator in mediation issues in our area and surrounding communities where we work with chiefs to solve misdemeanour cases and family issues to minimise the backlog of cases in courts.

Economic Development for Cap-Haïtien (EDCH) is a non-profit, development resource organization. It serves as a means to revitalize Cap-Haïtien socially, ecologically and economically.

Haiti has been suffering from brain drain. “More Haitian college graduates have left Haiti, per capita, than any other country in the world. When you think of the talent that Haiti has produced that benefits us and others, what we want to do is make it possible for any bright, young, ambitious Haitian to stay home and to build his or her country” (Secretary Clinton). In times of crises, foreigners often represent Haiti in the media and speak on behalf of the Haitian people. They explain the Haitian history, but exploit the Haitian culture. They determine the fate of the Haitian people. However, the Haitian presence is critical at this stage, particularly, in communities abroad. Haitians ought to respond to the call of duty and take control of Haiti’s destiny in order to avoid a total national disaster.

The goal of this project is to revitalize our communities, making the public domain environmentally friendly, fostering education, providing clean water, creating economic opportunity, establishing a business center, campaigning for proper sanitation and hygiene, serving hot meals twice a day, and administering healthcare services.

Haiti is an uncharted territory in terms of public affairs. Typically, foreign personnel and agents spearhead community and economic development. Economic Development for Cap-Haïtien is a Haitian effort that will operate under Haitian beliefs and values. Furthermore, it is a bottom-up initiative. Participative decision-making, consensus building, and ethical leadership are the cornerstones of EDCH. Haiti, traditionally, has a top-down structural society, which means that input from the public or community members is usually unwanted. In an effort to spur a paradigm shift, EDCH engages all community members in the strategic planning process to ensure civic engagement and inclusion.
