Golfing "Fore" THP

Was Hosted by THP Board Member Smith Vioselin on Saturday, July 19th at the Cedar Hill Golf Course in Stoughton, Massachusetts. The group had a great day on the green discussing the importance of education in Haiti. 



 

The Haitian Project's joint event with Alpert Medical School at Brown University on October 12th, 2013 was a great success – and not just in terms of dollars and cents.

The evening included a solid affirmation from a diverse group of people of the fundamental importance of education in enabling people to move themselves forward. Education undoubtedly has the greatest multiplier; it respects absolutely the principles of Subsidiarity and Solidarity.

Over 150 people convened at Alpert Medical School in Providence for an evening gala during which we had the honor of recognizing Dr. Ed Wing, former dean of Alpert, for his role in establishing the Brown-Haiti Medical Exchange – a program that has provided excellent professional development opportunities for our graduates.  Proceeds from the evening went to support both THP and St. Damien Children’s Hospital, which is the best children’s hospital in Haiti. 

THP would like to especially thank those who sponsored the evening: Glenn & Mary Jane Creamer, Home Loan Investment Bank, Brian Moynihan & Susan Berry, and Charles & Joy Wharton.  Their generous backing paid for the cost of the evening making support given by participants even more efficacious for THP and St. Damien Children's Hospital.


Deacon Patrick Moynihan received Brown's John Hope Award for Public Service, co-sponsored by the Brown Alumni Association and the Swearer Center for Public Service. As part of this honor, he addressed the John Hope Forum on Friday, October 26th, 2012 at Brown University. Deacon Moynihan led a challenging conversation on the face of Haiti and the dynamics of international aid. Guided by the Catholic missionary principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, he discussed his commitment to building the education and leadership of Haiti from within--a strategy he believes is more effective than the NGO model.
