A “Taxi driver” in Haiti

“I’m Sylvain Luxon and I’m 40 years old. I was born in Haiti in a town called Jacmel.

I’ve been driving a taxi for about sixteen years. My job is good. It’s very hard to find a job in this country. There are 9 million people living here and only 20% of them actually has a job, job that pays about three dollars a day, not enough money to take care of your family. This is why I decided to take a job as a taxi driver, to take care of my wife and our five children.

After the earthquake people want to rebuild Haiti, but the problem is that Haiti was never built in the first place.

We need foreign investors and businessmen to come here and invest in our country, but without being corrupted. The level of corruption in our country is very high. Our government is corrupted and does nothing for us. And we stay poor.

Most of the families can’t afford to send their children to school. We don’t have enough food… and we don’t have electricity at night.

Our only hope is for the international community to help us financially without the help of our corrupted government”.
