Live Different has been working in Haiti since 2008. We love this place! In May 2010, we broke the ground for our school project in Calvaire, a small mountain village on the outskirts of Cap Haitien, snugged around vertical steps and steep paths. The community is deeply impoverished and plagued by illiteracy, so our school (which opened in 2011) has been embraced by the whole community, and in fact employs numerous community members.
Currently we have approximately 170 students at the school. Each year, we add another classroom, allowing for more students to receive the opportunity of education. We are always adding to this project and are excited to see how far it has come!
Each of our volunteers participate in building projects and spend time with local families in their daily routines.We also always make sure to take some time to celebrate the adventure and beauty of northern Haiti: the Citadel and Labadee Beach.
Volunteers fly into Puerto Plata and drive to our project.
