Our missions to Haiti provide life-changing opportunities for those traveling from the USA, and more importantly, for people whom we work with in Gonaïves, Haiti. Every year we organize teams of volunteers who travel to Haiti to interact directly with the sponsored students and their families, meet community members in Gonaïves, and work with our Haitian board on the ground. Teams participate in summer camp activities and teach skills (arts, crafts, music, and sports), participate in various service projects, and deliver donations from the USA (back-packs, school supplies, toys, and other various requested items). Missions vary from year to year according to need expressed in Haiti, and the composition of the group traveling to Haiti. If you have a skill, we’d love to provide a means to use it!
Typically teams visit Haiti in summer/early fall and stay from 5 to 7 days. Preparation starts several months before a trip and includes participating in team meetings and gathering donations. Team members are responsible for all personal travel costs and expenses.
The next trip will be July 10 – 16, 2016. If you would like to join us on this mission, please contact us at email@example.com.
