The meaning behind our name
We collaborate with a village called Gros Mangles on La Gonâve Island in Haiti. "Gros Mangles" means "large mangrove" when translated from Haitian Creole into English. The village is named after one of the largest mangroves on the island.
Phonetically in French, it is pronounced /gwo mãgl/.
