Recycling- Alternative charcoal
Andre Dallaire, the bearded gentleman above, is from Quebec. He's with us to train some of our graduates in making charcoal from paper, cardboard, trash, wood chips and sawdust.
Andre has been involved with Haiti over forty years and has worked full-time these last twelve years fighting against the deforestation of Haiti. Benefits: a cleaner campus, savings (as we'll be buying less and less wood charcoal), job creation and a clean conscience as we won't be contributors to the real problem of deforestation of the mountainsides.
