Hope can be found in the most unlikely of places, and Haiti is proof of what it can look like!
Haiti’s 500 year history revolves around epic stories of tragedy and hope, full of heroes, villains, triumphs, and loss. As the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with 80% of its population living in abject poverty, it’s no secret that life has been difficult for Haiti. Political unrest, mudslides, flooding, tropical storms, and on top of all that, the 2010 earthquake, have continually made life challenging and painful for many Haitians. During your time with us in Haiti, you will be learning about how poverty affects a nation at every level and how you can be a part of the solution. As a team, we will be working alongside of a local Haitian organization, supporting them in their vision to help their community shape a better future for themselves and their children. You will come to Haiti ready to help out, but you will leave here knowing a new reality in the world: one that will inspire you to continue to change the world for people you will now count as friends.
