CEI discovered Fedler in June 2016, when he helped lead a music camp we sponsored in Jeannette, Haiti. His work with children and his passion for helping them change the future in Haiti was as as exceptional as his talent.
Creative Exchanges Initiative is an organization that is made greater by the wonderful staff and volunteers furthering its mission to make progressive change in Haiti. One of our great examples is our Senior Advisor in Haiti, Rodolphe Eloi.
“I have been playing drums onstage since I was a child,” says Welele. “I consider myself an evolving human being who is preparing myself and my generation to strengthen the world with love, respect, and acceptance.”
CEI’s Music Program and Director Jean Renel Louis has a fantastic story about how he came to work with us.
One which he tells us himself in his own words:
“In Haiti, most people don’t have a bank account. Goats are their savings account.” - Franck Toussaint
