It is a well-known principle in Haiti that a chodye (large cooking pot) has greatest stability when it rests on twa roche (three rocks). Accordingly, The Haitian Project’s (THP) Louverture Cleary School (LCS) sits solidly on three supports: students, staff and the community. Lucien “Lucky” Rousseau, owner of TOPCO-Haiti, has proven himself a true friend of the Project, supporting LCS with in-kind support from his food distribution business, hiring LCS graduates, and, most recently, supporting the filming of a new promotional video to help THP spread the good word.

Last week, Lucky Rousseau, one of THP's most enthusiastic local supporters, sponsored the filming of a new promotional video for the Project.
