2nd Inspirational Speaker this Year, Didier Davoust

The Children of Haiti Project welcomed their 2nd Inspirational Speaker this year, Didier Davoust, who works at the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), an operational arm of the United Nations, as a Project Coordinator for 16/6 - an urban development project in Port au Prince.  

Didier spoke of his father being a teacher in the Congo, his upbringing in Haiti from age 12 and the love he has for both countries. He shared his choice to remain in Haiti and placed emphasis in being disciplined, (do what you have to do and do it well), the respect of elders, taking pride in what you do and representing your school by your achievements. 

Following the children’s numerous questions, Didier went on to visit them in their classes to observe them at work.
