ECLAT Unleashes its Mission to Empower Haiti through Education – Collaboration – Leadership – Assistance – Transformation
May 5, 2015 – Miami, Florida – ECLAT Haiti, Inc., is a non-profit organization whose acronym stands for Education, Collaboration, Leadership, Assistance and Transformation, that is hosting a Fundraiser on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at Hollywood Live to raise money in order to save lives and change the future.
ECLAT’s mission is to bring the most significant necessities to the “payisan,” translated from Creole as countrymen, in Haiti. Being one of the most basic needs in the world, water is not readily available in the province of Momben in Côtes-deFer, Haiti. One of ECLAT’s main focuses is enriching Haiti’s agriculture and helping make water accessible to those who need it most.
“Can you imagine walking for miles to find something as simple as water? People in Côtes-de-Fer are struggling every day to survive and ECLAT wants to change that. We are trying to transform the entire environmental and agricultural aspect of Haiti to make sure that future generations never have to be without the essentials,” explains President of ECLAT, Mackendy Talon, also known as Mac D, a popular Haitian vocalist.
ECLAT is working towards bringing awareness to the needs of those in Haiti, be it in the development of the country or highlighting the products that could help cultivate the population. From planting trees to reignite cultivation for farmers or tapping into wells to provide fresh water for the populace, ECLAT is working to empower Haiti and its people.
“This fundraiser is a means for the public to get involved. One of the quotes we love the most is ‘Small acts when multiplied by millions of people, can change the world,’ that’s the essence of ECLAT,” says Vice President Sophia Philor.
On Sunday, June 7, 2015 at 5:30pm at Hollywood Live – 2333 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, Fl. –many of Mac D’s fellow musicians will stand with ECLAT during an “Unplugged” performance. Artists like Roberto and Reynaldo Martino from the group T-Vice, Oli Duret from Dat7, Gazzman from Disip, Sanders and Nickenson Prudhomme from Harmonik, Flav from Gabel, Richie from Klass, Reginald Cange, TPO, Ti Regi, JBeatz and many more will be onsite to raise money for ECLAT and its mission.
