The Haitian Ministry of Tourism and the Tourism Association of Haiti are working with Tourism Cares Inc. and the Clinton Foundation to promote northern Haiti as a destination for tourists. The groups have established the Northern Haiti Tourism Coalition and have each made a $10,000 grant to the organization. "Haiti has had a long tradition of hosting vacationers who have enjoyed its culture, history, arts and crafts, cuisine and beauty. The members of this coalition believe a renaissance is taking place in Haiti and its people and places can and will revive that tradition," said Bruce Beckham, Tourism Cares' executive director.
