PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Bill Clinton arrived in Haiti on Monday to shine a spotlight on some of the projects that his private foundation has supported to help the country recover from a devastating earthquake in 2010.

The former U.S. president began the visit with a tour at a solar-powered primary school in Cite Soleil, a forsaken seaside slum that is one of the Caribbean nation’s poorest neighborhoods.

"This is going to be a complete — not only educational, but neighborhood — experience," Clinton told reporters. "It’s a good model."

During his visit, Clinton will also tour a training school for Haitian coffee farmers in a remote village, as well as a recycling center and a new apparel manufacturer that invests part of its profits in its employees and their families.
