Thank you for visiting our website. We feel great pride in what has been accomplished at PEER since its inception in 1978. Whether you are an existing or potential client, employee, or vendor, we want this website to serve as a tool for you to learn more about who we are and the work we do locally and internationally in pursuit of a clean and sustainable environment.
I would like to personally invite you to tour our website on a regular basis as we are constantly updating it with the current status of our ongoing projects, relevant accomplishments and job opportunities.
The New Year 2013 brought in a flurry of activity for PEER. In spite of the flu, which really decimated our ranks during the Fall season, we all regained our strength and started 2013 with vigor. PEER turned 35 years old this past February, and I turned a year older as well, continuing to serve the planet and humankind.
In September 2012, I had the opportunity to represent the American Academy of Environmental Engineers (AAEE) as part of the review team for the Water and Sanitation Plan for the Elimination of Cholera in Haiti. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and the Government of Haiti, Ministry of Health prepared this plan. Serving on the review panel gave me an opportunity to spend a few days in Haiti again. The plan itself turned out quite well, and the Government of Haiti and PAHO were very receptive to the team’s review comments and input. I will feel great satisfaction once the Plan is implemented. Haiti continues to advance and those few days there back in September left me longing to find opportunities where PEER can impact the country’s transformation process, much like we have done in South Africa over the past 10 years.
I am happy to report the time has finally arrived for PEER to help Haiti transform to become a better and more productive, effective, and efficient country. PEER is currently assembling a team to increase the safety net for food security and is taking another step towards economic stability and increased security in Haiti with the help of the Haitian people themselves. Moving forward, our job is to know what the conditions are, how they got that way, and then determine the more effective ways to proceed collectively. We remain upbeat and joyous in our abilities to transform the country in unique and amicable ways that are also environmentally responsive and economically viable.
