Good Demen Haiti Teaches Creative Skills to At-Risk Youth
Good Demen Haiti (GDH), established in 2004, is a program for at-risk youth. A volunteer arts organization, it seeks to keep kids off the streets.
Artist Gumo Lormeus teaches the teens how to create art objects from recyclables. This year they will make costumes for the Carnival of Flowers, using plastic bottles. The order from the Ministry of Tourism is for 400 whistles, 200 dresses, and 200 hats. GDH also produces products for public and private consumption.
