    And the profit will go to support 80% of the Haitians who don’t know how to read and write. I wish! Analphabet is a major problem in Haiti. People die because they can’t follow medical prescriptions and doses. People lost opportunities to feed their family because they don’t know how to follow a job description.
    Let’s be serious about a good alphabetization program to reduce the percentage. The elite bourgeois/aristocrat intellectual is targeting a profit market and is as guilty as the elite trade and industry.
    Kite mele’yo si rest pep la pa kon’n ABC e 123! Men y’ap itilize trademark ak patent kankou istwa zombie, painti, arts, desin veve,, mizik, kostim’m, dans, lang kreyol,kwizin’n kreyol, ki se propriete intelektiyel pep la.
    M’al an Afrique pays francophone yo, yo pale souwaili, men edikasyon academic yo fet an français! Paysan kon’n di 2 mo an e k’ap ekri français. Pou kisa paysan nou yo pa jwen mem’m benefis sa yo?
