The great people of New Orleans have endured so much. The children of New Orleans cannot erase the memories of Katrina until they do not see the remnants of it any longer. The only way for healing to begin is for revitalization and redevelopment to begin in earnest. It has been way too long for massive recovery to begin in the Lower 9th Ward of Louisiana.
The time to act is now! The International Green Energy Council is confident that the Lower 9th Ward Village Community Center can and will become the heartbeat of revitalization of the Lower 9th Ward. It will become a place of healing for the children of the Lower 9th Ward. This center will become a hub of activity for the revitalization of the Lower 9th Ward. Children will come to learn about art, music, technology, alternative energy and how to cook. New Orleans style! Our vision is that it will become a community outreach center providing resources to the people of the Lower 9. A place where they can find the answers and the means to rebuild their homes and their community.
It is easy to forget about the destruction when you don’t deal with it every day or see the pictures on the news. New Orleans is America! Part of the greatest country on the Planet. We need to help our fellow Americans regain their dignity, their pride in being American. We need to help New Orleans regain a basic staple need of humanity….SHELTER.
