Wyclef Jean Travels to Haiti to Establish Youth Programs

13 11 2007

Wyclef Jean arrived in Haiti on Saturday (November 10) on a mission to establish a range of programs to benefit youth in his impoverished homeland. According to the Associated Press, this is Clef’s first visit to the Caribbean nation since being named as their roving ambassador in January. During his stay, the former Fugees front man will set up computer labs, classrooms and counseling for jailed child gang members through his Yele Haiti charity. He also has plans to help local women’s groups sell food in the seaside slum of Cite Soleil, and establish a youth scholarship and soccer program. “If you want to change a country, unfortunately, you’re not going to be able to help 8 million people at one time,” he told reporters upon his arrival.. “But if you can get one or two or three and start to make that change, that will make the difference.”
