BÈL RÈV = “Sweet Dreams” in Haitian Creole.

Haiti 155 has joined forces with fellow Brooklyn non-profit, Blue Marble Dreams, to build Sweet Dreams 2.0: BÈL RÈV in Port au Prince, Haiti.

BÈL RÈV, will also train and employ local women, equipping them with confidence, practical skills and a steady income.  We will source our products
from area farmers and producers, and otherwise work to support the health of the local economy.  Finally, we hope to serve as an encouraging example
to other social businesses and development workers looking to take an innovative approach to meaningful impact.

Inspired by the success in Rwanda.

Documented by by award-winning filmmakers, Rob & Lisa Fruchtman.  It has been screened at film festivals across the globe
