Smiff Lormier is one of 100+ alumni from the Haiti Entrepreneurship Camp facilitated by members of the Rotary Club of Wall Street from 2013 to 2017.

Turning Backpacks into Face Masks

Smiff Lormier is a young Haitian entrepreneur and a longtime friend of our Rotary Club. With help from our members, Lormier developed skills and connections to start a successful business manufacturing backpacks for Haitian youth.

Today- in response to the global pandemic- Lormier is stepping up to transform his manufacturing chain to produce non-medical masks in hopes of protecting the local elderly population.

The Rotary E-Club of Wall Street is once again investing in Smiff Lormier and the Haiti economy by procuring masks. Together, we will provide critical face masks to vulnerable communities in Haiti and New York City during the ongoing pandemic– but we need your help.

Sharing E-Meeting Insights + Resources

Our Rotary Club is at the forefront of technology as the 1st E-Club in District 7230, with two years of hosting online meetings, global service projects and in-person and virtual socials.

During this time when social distancing is critical for our health– and maintaining fellowship is critical for our souls– our members have recorded insights and helped train traditional Rotary Clubs in our District with using online platforms. We have also offered our Zoom services to Rotarians interested in testing technology.
