Haiti Partners is regularly asked by churches, businesses, and individuals if we have mission trips or opportunities for people to come to Haiti and do something concrete to help. The answer is: Yes! We’d love for you to come.
As an organization we strive to never take jobs from Haitians. The purpose of Haiti Partners’ trips and volunteer opportunities is to facilitate visits with people who either are, or want to become, committed long-term partners with us in this work. We want to provide our Haitian colleagues with assistance and/or expertise that specifically responds to the needs they’ve expressed.
A few of the specific requests from our Haitian colleagues are:
We host visitors, volunteers and interns who come for as short as two nights and as long as, in some cases, multiple years. Please complete the appropriate form below and we’ll be in touch with the costs for your stay. Rates include lodging, 3 meals a day, logistics and planning, all in-country transportation, translation, security and cultural orientation.
Director, John Engle, and his wife, Merline, host our visitors. John has more than 25 years experience in Haiti while Merline is a native Haitian. They are assisted by our team of Haitian colleagues. To learn more about where you’ll be staying – Bellevue – click here.
In an effort to be good stewards of our expertise and resources, and to ultimately use them to help Haitians change Haiti through education, we team up with people and groups who are going to help us to truly impact the educational opportunities for Haitian children. It is our hope that or your group – school, church or company – can get excited about finding additional financial resources to improve education in Haiti, and that these efforts might lead you to come and have meaningful engagements with Haitians. If you’ll already be in Haiti and simply want to stop by and see our work please indicate that in the Visitors form. We are eager to engage with you and look forward to hearing from you.
