PRODUCER + EDITOR
Lidè is an educational initiative in rural Haiti that uses the arts and literacy to empower at-risk adolescent girls and help them transition into school or vocational training. Established by Author Holiday Reinhorn, Actor Rainn Wilson and Exec, Director Dr. Kathryn Adams in response to the devastating earthquake of 2010, the Lidè program seeks to uplift women and girls who have been denied equal access to education. Lidè trains and employs Haitian teachers and collaborates with grassroots schools and programs. The Lidè Foundation believes that arts in education inspires personal empowerment, resilience and self-efficacy. LIDE means “Leader” and “Idea” in Haitian Creole.
