Check out this set of short videos on Valentin Abe, the gentlemen who brought fish farming to Haiti.  This is a fine example of what a social entrepreneur can do to help people rise above poverty.  CNN International’s African Voices program had a nice piece on this Sunda.  Below is a link to a video from Time magazine, which recently awarded Mr. Abe as one of its 100 Most Influential People.  I enjoy seeing nice guys finish first!

Enjoy the videos.
