Haiti Design Co-op
Haiti Design Co-op is a community-based nonprofit that was founded in 2014 by Josh and Chandler Busby. The main mission behind the organization is to create sustainable development through design, training, and job creation; the nonprofit’s mantra comes from an old Haitian proverb that means “Many hands make the load light.” All of the artisans work together, and the organization and community development committee provide resources such as healthcare and educational seminars on leadership development training and mental health awareness.
Haiti, officially known as the Republic of Haiti, was the first state within the Caribbean to have gained independence. It was a Spanish colony after Christopher Columbus arrived on Hispaniola in 1492. Hayti, the Indian name for Haiti, means “land of the mountains,” and the country is located in the western one-third of the Hispaniola island. Common agriculture includes coffee, mangoes, rice, cocoa, and wood, while popular industries are textiles, cement, sugar refining, and flour milling. Copper, gold, marble, and hydropower are among the natural resources within the nation.
