The Caneille Regional Development Fund is currently hosting a Leadership, Creative Solutions, and Community Development Workshop for a group of community leaders from rural Haiti.
The ten elected CASEC members arrived in Appleton on May 9th and will continue their workshop before returning to Haiti at the end of the week. Now halfway through their trip, they visited several area businesses and nonprofits including:
-Appleton North High School
-Valley New School
-The Building for Kids
-The Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region
-The Appleton Farm Market
The CASEC members enjoyed hearing from community leaders about education, innovation, setting community priorities, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving. The group has asked good questions and have many ideas for projects to do in their communities.
If you are interested in hearing more about life in Haiti and the group’s experiences, they are giving a public talk on:
Monday, May 14th, 6:30-8pm
