PORT-AU-PRINCE, July 12, 2010 – Wyclef announced the creation of Yéle Corps, a new program that will provide jobs to nearly 1,000 people a day cleaning the streets and removing garbage. The program also includes a vocational training component. Nearly 1,000 people attended a Yéle Corps rally at the Place St. Pierre tent camp where Wyclef addressed the first 200 workers to be signed up for the program when it begins operation in the next month. Yéle has received major financial support for this new initiative from the “Hope for Haiti Now Fund,” with secondary support from the BET telethon “SOS Saving OurSelves.”
