Documentaries on Relief and Development Projects in Haiti
Tombo Productions is a project by filmmaker and relief/development worker David Ito who produces documentaries about relief and development projects in Haiti for NGOs, United Nations, donors and social enterprise. Such documentaries serve to promote current and future projects as well as to advocate for social change on issues affecting our society. David Ito's documentaires are inspired in 'cinéma vérité'.
In Japanese, 'Tombo' means dragonfly which is associated with qualities such as prosperity, strength, peace, and harmony. In this less-than-perfect world, relief and development programs across the world aim to bring such qualities to the communities they support.
Beyond Relief: Rebuilding Haiti
This documentary was produced for Miyamoto International Ltd. It shows how the devastating earthquake in 2010 has motivated all sectors of society to improve construction methods and thus prevent future humanitarian disasters.
This is a piece for the United Nations Development Programme in Haiti on a truly innovative post-earthquake house self-reconstruction project. CARMEN (Community Support Centers for House Repairs) provides engineering assessments, training and grants while adapting their support to those with special needs.
Logistical procedure for project "Boite a Histoires"

Shine a Light Campaign
Electricity does not reach over 70% of Haitian households. The Shine a Light Campaign aims to bring a solution through its solar-powererd lamps thus reducing fuel smoke breathing inside houses and allowing students to study at home after sunset.
Environmental Campaign MOSAJ 2012
