Now he has gone one step further. Frustrated by the slow pace of the international recovery effort and his desire to resettle the tent city dwellers, Capponi has launched a tourism redevelopment project in Jacmel, a quaint town on the south coast known for its local artists and papier-maché handicrafts. Its distinctive French colonial architecture and rich cultural scene give it an Old World charm that makes it stand out from the rest of the country. In fact, Jacmel’s urban and architectural design is credited with having influenced New Orleans’ French Quarter.

Michael Capponi is a true inspiration. It is true that he has been through a lot in his life, but where other people would have used his struggles as excuses to give up and let themselves be beaten, he instead decided to do all sorts of positive things for the world. His restoration of an old building in Haiti would be admirable enough on its own, but in addition to this great feat, he wants to help revitalize the entire nation and help all of its people.
It seems that he wants to dedicate his entire life to helping with humanitarian efforts, as he became interested in Haiti after the natural disaster that devastated the nation in 2010. This building is just a start, albeit an impressive one. It is clear that Michael Capponi is truly going to make a difference in Haiti and elsewhere in the world as well.
