We all operate on limited time and resources, however, there is one way to offset these limitations, and that is through Power Partnerships. By partnering and collaborating with people in Haiti who have been doing impressive work, we will not only help them achieve their goals, we in turn will achieve ours, which are simply the advancement of Haiti and prosperity for all Haitians.
