This is The Real Haiti! Sa se vre Ayiti a!
Beautiful beaches, fresh seafood, hard working people, awesome resorts and hotels, tourists vacationing, fresh food, home cooked meals, gathered around the table, bars, nature, peaceful - these are all experiences that come to mind when we think of The Real Haiti!
Unfortunately, the news banks on the phrase "if it bleeds it leads," a catch phrase that means the more negative the better. Haiti has been dealt some major challenges for sure, but contrary to the news, we believe in promoting the amazing things about the island that we love so much!
Let's show the world The Real Haiti!
Blue Butterfly Collaborative's inaugural series is LAKOU KAJOU, an innovative educational media program designed for young Haitian children.
Designed and produced in Haiti by Muska Group, LAKOU KAJOU features animated brother-sister twins Lili and Tilou, who encounter fun adventures in and around their family's lakou (Haitian Kreyol for courtyard). These adventures form the foundation for teaching children the Kreyol language skills, mathematics, science, problem solving, and a host of other skills and knowledge. Intermixed among the animated segments about Lili and Tilou, the program includes live-action segments, music videos and other content that present educational messages in a uniquely Haitian context.
