 Upstate International Presents a Global Humanitarian Outreach Lunch & Learn Opportunity                 

Daniel Tillias, a nominated CNN Hero, is coming to Upstate International to share his experiences creating safe spaces for children in Haiti. “Many people in Haiti refer to Cité Soleil as the trash place where all the dumps are,” Tillias said. “But … I see these kids with potential, with wings … waiting to fly.” Tillias runs the youth empowerment program called SAKALA offering free after school sports and academics, gardening, community development and conflict resolution programs for children.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet a real life hero.

Daniel Tillias has been a community development agent for over 20 years. He is a social entrepreneur and a visionary behind several sustainable initiatives all over Haiti with ALAVET AYITI and FATRAKA, Generation Leader 2030 among the more recent. Daniel’s focus is on Cite Soleil the largest under-served community in Haiti and many other similar communities.  In 2006, Daniel co- founded the largest Community Center in Cite Soleil known as SAKALA (Community Center for Peaceful Alternatives). He has been awarded several prizes from all over the world, the most recent is a nomination for the prestigious CNN HERO 2019 award.
