2017 Volunteer Programme

Every year, our Volunteer Programme makes an incredible impact in a local community in Haiti.

In 2017, our Volunteer Programme is travelling between Friday, 21st April and Sunday, 29th April – and we hope you can join us!

Our volunteers will be immersed in a local community, leading and contributing to a range of projects and activities which focus on our three core development areas: Water and Sanitation (WASH), training and education, and shelter.

The fundraising target for each volunteer for the 2017 Volunteer Programme is €4,500 ($5,000), with €500 ($500) required upfront as a deposit to secure your place.  Everyone is welcome, and no experience is necessary: we only have 30 spots available for next year, and we would love to see some of our veterans and some fresh faces there with us!

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.  The rest of the fundraising goes towards the projects that you will be working on during the week.

We aim to 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, and other services locally.  Local contractors are employed on all of the projects, and will work with you during the week.
