At the start of this journey, we recognized that weak leadership was at the root of Haitians lack of engagement and participation in the post-earthquake humanitarian response and subsequent reconstruction. Since that time, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to advancing our mission, which is to cultivate and support a new generation.
We knew that tackling the chronic leadership challenge, at all levels and across all sectors would take time. Indeed, it is exactly in response to this challenge that CLE was created. We use our existing assets of people and partners across the country to build more effective Haitian leadership. Our work is cross sectoral and intentional about the development of strong networks of like-minded citizens. It is also about promoting collaboration, disseminating best practices, and proven innovations for social and economic progress in Haiti.
As we look back at the past decade, we are deeply encouraged by the momentum that CLE has built. We are witnesses to the transformation that has taken place as a result of the hard labor of leaders across the country. In tribute to those we lost in 2010 and in solidarity with this and the next generation, we are reaffirming our commitment to hold steadfast to our mission, which is to bring about a leadership transformation that will positively impact the lives of youth, families and communities across Haiti.
We thank you for your continued support.
