Set in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti that killed 300,000 and left 2.5 million homeless, Kenbe Fem follows David Pierre-Louis in his search to find his mother after the tragedy. But even more – it’s a story of enduring love, strength, and resilience.
In the 7 years since then, David has founded Kay Tita (pronounced: kai-tea-tah) or Tita’s House, named after his mother Augusta Bienvenue whose home was directly affected by the 2010 earthquake. Built on this site, Kay Tita will serve as a dynamic, sustainable community resource center that cultivates partnerships for social impact, trains entrepreneurs, and creates impact investing opportunities. As audiences witness this incredible story of hope, learn how this tragedy is transformed into a call for action – to work in concert with Haitian communities towards sustainable prosperity in the country’s economy.
Join us for what will be a culturally engaging evening, filled with Haitian art, community building, and inspiration. All ticket proceeds will go to support Kay Tita and are tax-deductible. We encourage you to attend a Kenbe Fem screening or make a tax-deductible donation to Kay Tita. By doing so, you are investing in a more sustainable Haiti that gives every citizen the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and create a better future.
Social impact leaders, friends of Haiti, members of the Diaspora, and all those interested in learning about how they can contribute to this growing cause are invited to participate in viewing Kenbe Fem, a story that serves as a profound reminder of the power that one person can have to make radical positive change.
