Why this name

Apwoch” is the Haitian Creole translation of “Approach.” While it is common to see Greek and Latin words used in naming, it is far less common to see Haitian Creole words being employed. Haitian Creole is a language that represents unity, liberation, freedom, creativity, courage, and perseverance. It was forged by enslaved men and women who used it to build communities, inspire movements, ignite revolutions, and found a nation. Haitian Creole does not use gendered language, and its speakers have coined words that directly reflect the sounds they hear, such as “goudougoudou” (the onomatopoeic term for the noise heard during the devastating 2010 earthquake). Choosing the name “Apwoch” perfectly aligns with our vision and belief in the power of people to design solutions and transform their realities. We believe that the way one approaches, analyzes, and dissects a problem influences how they solve it and the impact they achieve. By using “Apwoch,” we invite everyone to tackle problems with an open mind and to rely on those who are directly affected. It calls for including those closest to the problem in the search for solutions and approaching others for partnerships. It is also a reminder that knowledge and wisdom are universal, and the Global South, its countries, communities, and people, who are often relegated to secondary status, have much to contribute to the world.
