"Ayiti Cheri", A French Artist J.R. Inside Out Group Action Art Project in Haiti

We are two teachers, one in Saint-Marc, Haiti and one in New York City, USA, who are dedicated to the education of young girls in Haiti. We would like to raise awareness of education of girls in Haiti. We plan to paste the posters on outdoor walls in Saint-Marc, Haiti. The title of our project, "Ayiti Cheri", is Haitian Creole for "Haïti Chérie". We wanted the name of the project to be in Haitian Creole, because it is the first language of the children we teach.

Continuously making headlines over the past few weeks, Mali, the francophone West African country, doesn’t seem that far away when we think of the Malian population that exists within the borders of the United States.

As a nation of immigrants, it comes as no surprise that we have our very own Malian community. According to the latest Census, there are approximately 8000 Malian…
