Such incidents emphasized the
need for a community program
of adult'- education, sanitation,
and preventive medicine. For
this .purpose,. the Rev. Lloyd,
Shirer joined' the Mellons and in
1959 started a' community-deve-:
lopment program that. covers 8
villages on a meager budget of
$30,000. Shirer, witfi a back-
ground,. of educational work. on
the African GOld- Coast (now
Ghana), is assisted by two high-
ly qualified .Haitians, Mr and
Mrs' Joseph Bernard, and-a staff
of eighteen young Haitians and"
-Arnericans. In addition, dozens'
of Haitian volunteers work in the
community ce n t er s teaching
reading and writing, sewing,
homemaking, child care; carp-
entry, ceramics _and sanitation.
The deelonnment nmpr-gram is
in.tLructing the people in the dig-
ging. of safe wells, building of
showers and latrines and cons-
truction of rammed-earth houses,
which are superior to wattle or
inud huts. Shirer's staff has a
station wagbn and a motion-pic-
ture truck to show educational
films, particularly on health
subjects. They have made two
excellent short movies of their
own, one on prevention of tetan-
us in babies ana the other about
the raising of pigs. Dr Tomr
Keefe of Hartford, Connecticut,
a Cornell Univbrsity graduate,
recently joined the staff as ve-
terinarian, and with his help. 3
farmers are raising pigs in a
controlled experiment, using mo-
dem animal-husbandry methods
Shirer hope- that the results will
encourage many small, farmers
to profit by example. Ir the
past they have raised only thin.
. Last year Mellon observed that
the villagers of nearby Desar-
mes had to carry water half a
mile from 'a creek ,contaminated
by parasites that sapped tile vil-
lagers' strength and made them
vulnerable to many ailments.
After tramping through the hills
above the village until he found
a flowing spring, he offered- to
provide pipe for a water line
to the market place, if the peop-
le would dig the ditch. .
"The response," he says, "'was
remarkable. Not only did they

dig .the ditch but, to help pa)
for the pipeline, they raised $100.
Soon they will have pure wdter r

The trouble is that as -opera-
tions expand the costs mount.
Originally Mellon set up the
Grant Foundation in such a way
'that it would provide about $200,-
000 each year for operating ex-.
penses. This gilt left him with-
out a cent. "The only real pro-
perty I have left in the world,"
