Robillard Louino

Louino Robillard was born in St Raphael, but his father moved him to Port au Prince, the capital of Haiti when he was 5 years old. He was raised in Cite Soleil, Haiti’s largest ghetto, and managed to finish his primary and secondary school despite the ongoing violence there at the time.  He was trained as a mapper and assisted humanitarian organizations after the earthquake of 2010, but left in order to work more closely with his community in Cite Soleil. Louino was accepted into a Master’s Program in Applied Community Change and Peacebuilding, which brought him to India, Kenya, and the United States. After graduating in 2013, he is taking his knowledge about sustainable community change back to his place of birth, St Raphael.

Louino Robillard te fet nan Sen Rafayel, men le li te gen 5 an, papa’l te pran li e mene li Potoprens. Li te leve nan Site Soley, pi gwo ghetto Ayiti, e li reyisi fini etid prime ak sekonde li malgre gwo vyolans ki te genyen nan Site Soley a lepok. Li fe fome kom yon mapper – sa vle di yon moun ki travay ak kat – e te travay ak kek ajans imanite apre tranbleman de te 2010 lan, men li te demisyone pou li ka travay pi plis ak kominote li. Louino te aksepte nan yon pwogram Metril nan Chanjman Kominote ak Konstwi Lape, ki te mene li en Ind, Kenya, e Ozetazini. Apre li fin gradiye nan 2013, li deside aplike konesans li vin genyen sou chanjman kominote dirab kote li te fet, ki se Sen Rafayel.

Sabina Carlson Robillard is an American citizen, raised in central New Jersey. While studying Community Health at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, she began to collaborate with the Haitian Diaspora on a project to change the dynamic between university students and the communities they researched. This brought her to rural northern Haiti in 2007, and over several visits she became fluent in Haitian kreyol.  After spending a year in South Sudan, she returned to Haiti after the earthquake of 2010 to put her knowledge of kreyol to humanitarian use. Since then she has been in Haiti, working for the International Organization on Migration before resigning to work more closely with community change movements. She recently graduated from a Master’s program in Applied Community Change and Peacebuilding and wrote her thesis on Haitian approaches to sustainability.
