Haitian Newsweekly Launches Website in English for Haitians

MIAMI--()--Challenges, a fresh source for reliable and timely news for Haitians, as well as Haitian diaspora in the United States and parts of Canada, has launched an English-language online version for diaspora with English-language preference. The online version is available at www.challengesnews.com.

Previously, the 10,000-weekly circulation publication was only printed in French and distributed in Haiti. Challenges will still be printed in French, and distributed in Haiti, in addition to the online English version.

“Our goal for Challenges has always been to serve the informational needs of both native Haitians and Haitian diaspora living in the United States and Canada,” said Alexandre Thevenet, news director of Challenges. “The best way for us to do this was to first get the news in print before we moved to an online, English version."

The online version of Challenges targets Haitian diaspora living in Miami, Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, NYC, New Jersey and Chicago, as well as parts of Canada, including Quebec City and Montreal.

Challenges print version has been in circulation since August 2014. It is currently the only newsweekly in Haiti. Challenges operates as a media and publishing subsidiary within the GB Group.
