When I wrote my post this morning, I didn’t realize that there is currently a Fletcher team in Port-au-Prince. Around mid-day, this information arrived in my inbox:
Fletcher’s Center for Emerging Market Enterprises sponsored a group of seven Fletcher students and fellows on a trip to Haiti last week to research inclusive commerce trends in the region. The group was in Port-au-Prince when the earthquake took place. We have received word from one of the research team members that the entire Fletcher group is together and safe.
Since then, I have heard that the group was scheduled to fly home tomorrow, but that the flight has been canceled. Beyond that, details are very sketchy, but at least they are safe.
