Discover Haiti Service Trip
July 16-24, 2011
Pond Sonde, Haiti

BuildaBridge will return to Haiti in July 16-24 as part of our long term Arts Relief and Development initiative.  Continuing with catalyzing, capacity building and sustainable arts development, participants will both teach and assist with a local elementary school . Living conditions are very basic.  At the Louis Pierrot School in Pond Sonde, we will provide an arts camp and are looking to engage more local artists as teachers.  Training is required and also provided at local site.
The dates this year are:  July 16th-24th, 2011.   Artists are expected to contribute or raise $1800 for the project.  Artists/Volunteers purchase their own airline tickets.  All in-country expenses are covered by the project.   You may want to read our financial policy and information about fundraising policy.  A $350 non-refundable deposit is required by May 30th, 2011.  Full commitment is due July 1, 2011.

View pictures of our last Haiti Arts Relief experience. Read stories of transformation from the artists.

View a 10 minute video on the BuildaBridge Classroom which is the model we have developed for working with children.  In this model we create a safe place for children to learn and create.

If you are interested, the first step will be to register and create a confidential profile on BuildaBridge People and notify Dr. Corbitt or Maeva Renaud the Haiti Arts Relief and Development Coordinator.
