Volunteer with Haven in Haiti
Make a real difference. Volunteer with Irish Charity Haven in Haiti from the 18th - 27th of April 2014.
Following the success of the May 2103 Volunteer Programme to Ile a Vache, Haven is looking for 30 Volunteers to travel to Haiti from the 18th- 27th of April 2014.
Haven’s volunteers will work long days in sweltering heat on programmes designed around Haven’s three core developmental areas; Water & Sanitation, Shelter and Training & Education. Interaction with the community will be one of the key components of the Volunteer Programme. Volunteers will partake in a broad range of activities suited to multiple skill sets.
The departure date for volunteers travelling from Ireland is the 18th of April 2014 returning to Dublin on the 27th of April 2014.
The 2010 earthquake in Haiti affected more than two million people. Today, thousands of Haitians continue to live in dire conditions with 347,000 people still living in camps throughout the region.
These families need your help. Your sacrifice of time and comfort, your hard work and your commitment to not only cover your own costs but to raise funds for future work in Haiti is what will truly make volunteering with Haven a life-changing experience.
Your participation with Haven will not only ensure the success of this project, but will help continue Haven‘s work across Haiti. Your participation will change lives.
For more information on the trip please call the Haven office on 01 6815 440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraising Targets: €4,500
Deposit - €400 (deposit to secure place)
Dec 20th 2013 - €2,100
March 22nd 2014 - €2,000
The trip as a whole costs €4,500 and of this just under €1,750 goes towards logistical costs such as flights, accommodation, insurance, food and transportation while in Haiti. This also covers the cost of hiring security for the week.
The rest of the fundraising goes towards the projects that you will be working on during the week. We try and put as much of the funds as possible back into the local community and the Haitian economy. Therefore, we source all our building materials, transport, etc locally. Local contractors are employed on all the projects and will work with you during the week.
All welcome. No building experience necessary.
