I'm Nittai Malchin, a senior at Palo Alto High School in CA and the founder of One Love Advocates. Our mission is to do whatever possible to improve access to education in communities that are struggling with destructive or endemic problems. My immediate focus is helping kids in Haiti gain access to educational opportunities. I recently traveled to Haiti, and I will be documenting my trip on this site. There are 4 sections (see navigation above) to my mini site: (1) my blog where i document my activities, impressions and thoughts from Haiti (2) About One Love where you can read more about the initiative (3) Support One Love where you can learn how to get involved, donate or help (4) contact info. And on the right sidebar you will find more info such as links to other sites, feeds, photos, videos, and ways to contact me or share One Love with others. Also, check out the cool toolbar on the bottom of your screen to see our videos, photos, and Facebook page, for translations, and more. Thank you for visiting and feel free to share your thoughts.

On the mountains of Mòn Bouton

Hey everyone! We are currently at the mountain and somehow getting a phone signal on the mountain. We can't write too much since we don't have a computer/keyboard. The experience here is completely different from my last one in the city. All of the people that we have met have been incredibly kind and welcoming. We've been offered more food than we could possibly handle, had more fun with childish games with the kids here (they had a day off from school because jhonny the principal was with us and did not not feel well)than we have in a long time, and we've had lots of cool songs sung to us.

More soon. One Love

Wow. What an experience being here in Haiti! We've hiked for miles and miles each day (7 hours just to hike up here) visited a wash-wash and said bon swa (good afternoon) to many people along the way. After seeing where all of the water comes from, I am much more appreciative of every drop of water that I get to drink and bathe in.


Right at the edge of the cliff behind the last house in Mòn Bouton we can somehow get a signal. Everywhere we go the mountains around us are unbelievable. We traveled up the mountain with a Haitian girl, Sophonie, and it's interesting to see how she's doing as this is her first trip up from Port-au-Prince as well.
