What are your plans for Spring Break? Want to make a difference in the world? Take an adventure of a lifetime? Come with us to Haiti!!
Alternative Breaks is excited to work with Volunteers For Peace to continue their support and connection with a primary school in Desab, Haiti. This is a school for 244 children ages 5-12 in a very rural setting about an hour north of Port au Prince. The school director and teachers as well as AB are excited to engage these students in a cultural exchange and have a number of school projects they need assistance with. From helping instruct a class to painting one, this will be a trip full of service and inspiration!
