Fresh Start Movement®
About The Movement:
Fresh Start Movement (FSM) is a program of the Haitian Consortium®, which carves its roots in “Union for change”, “Group for Action” and “Civic Empowerment”. It is a movement advanced by people who are dedicated to alleviating and eliminating the human misery, poverty and ecological degradation in Haiti. It is also a group with the aim of providing materials, human assistance, financial backing, tools, and knowledge for the reconstruction and progress of a mission capable of bringing democracy trough sustainable economic development programs to Haiti.
Why a Fresh Start Movement Now?
Haiti has long been classed as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Over the past 5 years, its status has been downgraded to a “failed State” with a strain of broken governments. In 2006-2007, many global agencies voiced their opinions about Haiti, as a country to be placed under an “International Protectorate”. It is the country with the poorest managerial history in the Western Hemisphere and among the worst 25 in the world.
The Fresh Start Movement® was created as an immediate response to this dilemma. It is founded by a group of Haitians in the Diaspora and friends of Haiti. They are united by the conviction that promoting massive investment in education and human capital will secure justice, peace, and equality for all.
The Fresh Start Movement® is linked to transnational and global movements, scholars, empowerment groups, evangelical organizations, investment agencies, banking associations and businesses. The movement seeks to bring together the best approaches for economic and social development through business ventures, sociology, political science, anthropology, history, cultural studies, Pan-American studies, women's studies, and other fields of social movement analysis.
Goals and Objectives:
The goals and objectives of The Fresh Start Movement® are to tackle the underlying causes of misery and poverty in Haiti. We intend to change policies that ensure benefits for the rich and conditions that keep Haitian families poor and illiterate. We will study and encourage positive alternatives while working in conjunction with investors, bankers, developers in the United States, Asia, Canada, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean who have established a good reputation on standing up to injustice and who are willing to give poor people a second chance.
