In early January 2010 Digital Democracy partnered with Tufts University's Center for Emerging Market Enterprises (CEME) to conduct research and a photography training with young adults in Haiti. Researchers Chrissy Martin and Joshua Haynes, using the Project Einstein curriculum, worked with young adults ages 18-24 to explore, through the use of digital photography, how these youth view money and finance in their society.

Several days after the completion of this training, while the research team was doing work in Haiti's capital, Port Au Prince, a devastating Earthquake shook the country. In this episode of DdTv, Chrissy Martin discusses her experiences being in the Earthquake, witnessing first-hand the toll it took on the country and its people, and her reflections on the photo training that took place only 3 days prior. In addition, the emergency response through the use of Ushahidi, spearheaded by Chrissy and Josh's classmates at the Fletcher School and Digital Democracy's Co-Directors Mark and Emily, which helped get critical updates including information about missing persons, locations of danger zones and available aid to groups working on the ground.
