- Support a school
- Get to know a family, and as many students as you can
- Nutritional Program
- Hands on Project Involvement
- Learn about Haiti
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.
Currently we have approximately 300 students at the school. Last year, we started a nutritional program that currently serves 3 meals a week. This is a huge feat to serve 300 students plus staff, but very needed.
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 a small mountain village on the outskirts of Cap Haitien, nestled 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.
Volunteers either fly into Puerto Plata and drive to Cap Haitien, or fly direct to Cap Haitien.
