Kay Blada

Johnson "Blada" Desauguste, the founder of Kay Blada, grew up in Hinche, Haiti. Growing up in Haiti, Blada witnessed both the extreme poverty and environmental devastation that plagues the country, as well as the well-intentioned yet misdirected actions of the multitude of NGOs that function there. Blada's experiences led him to create a non-profit that focuses on the community in which it operates, with the goal of educating and employing Haitian citizens while reducing plastic waste.
