How to Build a School in Haiti - Preview
In 2011, Colorado resident and retired building contractor Tim Myers traveled to Haiti because he believed he could help transform the country. After building a school there, he’s not so sure.
How to Build a School in Haiti is about Tim, the school he built and the community it serves.
Shot over three years, How to Build a School in Haiti documents Tim's transformation from well-intentioned idealist to weary pragmatist as he struggles to finish this labor of love.
Putting a face on developing world poverty and illustrating the impact the new school has on the community, How to Build a School in Haiti takes an unflinching look at the difficulties of economic development and offers new ways to look at the problem of poverty.
