“Power over a man’s subsistence is power over his will.”- Alexander Hamilton
The only way to effect change is through long term development. We apply this to everything that we do. The DecAid project works to partner with communities in applying the principles of Asset Based Community Development in order to identify to have a sustainable long tern solutions to concerns identified through consensus of the members of the local community. DecAid also collaborates with professionals in many difference disciplines. We focus on first hand research, working directly on the ground with decision makers in the villages. We believe the only way to effect real change comes through being able to identify key areas in which the local people can go beyond just providing for the day, but providing for the future. This is the road to development for the future of Haiti.
