Its official- you can now find Enèji Pwòp products from Tiburon to Cap-Haïtien! EarthSpark recently formed a partnership with the Organisation des Jeunes Visionnaires Haïtiens, a youth group with representation in each of the 19 communes of the North Department who are now Enèji Pwòp retailers. The members of the group were all chosen by the government of Haiti to undergo a year-long training in leadership and entrepreneurial skills. They work in their communities, providing training and support to other grassroots organizations as well as putting on cultural and sporting activities, but were also looking for business opportunities.
This year, the national Carnival was held in Cap-Haïtien and the group decided to use the occasion to launch their clean energy businesses. The weekend kicked off with a training by EarthSpark including energy literacy and basic business skills along with Enèji Pwòp customer service and brand awareness. The group was so excited to start their new businesses that they showed up at the training wearing Carnival hats with Enèji Pwòp painted on them!
EarthSpark is really excited to work with such an excellent group of young adults and looking forward to watching their businesses grow!
