Go to the people.
Live among them.
Learn from them.
Love them.
Serve them.
Plan with them.
Start with what they know.
Build on what they have.

Y.C. Yen

I follow a blog written by a Canadian man living and working in Haiti. From what I've gathered he is working at a nursing school/hospital in Saint Marc. He shared this poem on his blog recently and I really, really like it. My initial thoughts are, "Yes. With them. Not for them or to them, but with them."
