Hands Up For Haiti

Hands Up for Haiti is our primary school programme that aims to give students an early understanding about Haiti and how all children do not live in the same circumstances.

The programme aims to do the following:

  • Hands Up for Haiti StudentsEducate students about Haiti and give them an understanding that there are children and families in Haiti who are living in difficult circumstances.
  • Teach children about the importance of giving a little to help those worse off than themselves.
  • Give students the responsibility to complete their tasks and collect sponsorship money (no matter how small the amount)
  • Have fun by colouring in their paper 'Hands for Haiti' and then decorating their school/classroom with them.

Haven ambassadors are available to meet with your class and talk about Haiti and our work in Haiti.
