I'm a junior in college trying to find a Marine Science job in Haiti so I can live there. I'd just like some info on what to expect cost-wise. I don't need to live by the coast, optimally I'd like to live in the Central Plateau region.

people will charge insane prices for a decent apartment, even a mediocre room. you need to fight for the right price. I know people who pay 1000-2000US for an apartment for the month but a Haitian could get that same apartment for 350US-600 a month. I lived in Cap Haitien from 2005-2011 on 350 a month for a small apartment on the coast in a good part of town and that came with my utilities. food is very cheap if yo ushop in the local markets. if your a single man buying just for yourself you could get a months supply of food on 100 US no problem if you shop in the grocery stores you will pay as much even more than you do in the US. Being your White you will want a truck/automobile because its constant harassment on the streets especially if you walk. but if you can handle yourself then walk. buying a truck in Haiti is a pain in the ass get on in DR or a motorcycle if you want to keep it cheap but beware they will be very expensive. you can bring a car/truck from the USA and ship it in but get ready for red tape and hellish taxes and fees and mind games from corrupt officials. i can live well in Haiti on 1200-1500 dollars a month US but most people need more like 2000-3000 depends on what your standards and needs are. if you need more help send me a message - David

I will be moving to Haiti in August and am hoping to play soccer, pickup or mens league, ona regular basis. Does anyone know if this is something that happens? Anyone have any contacts? It would be even better if there were some locals involved, but I simply want to play. Let me know! I will be living in the Petionville area, teaching at Union School.

ProjectStitch posted Project Stitch Indigogo on the Haiti forum:
Hi everybody, there’s a new program on Indigogo called Project Stitch. This project allows Haitians who have suffered injuries from the 2010 earthquake to learn a trade and rebuild their lives by becoming professional sewers. The participants make beautiful hand made ties and pocket squares. To sponsor the program or purchase a tie, visit the link below. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/project-stitch-haiti/x/5606092.
