In March 2011, students, faculty and staff from Howard University traveled to Haiti on as part of the University’s Alternative Spring Break program to help the Caribbean nation to rebuild after the January 2010 earthquake.
This year, Howard returns to Haiti to work with the Haitian American Caucus (HAC-Haiti) at the Ecole Shalom/Alpha Academy and will provide support for HAC’s after school, English language, Literacy, microfinance and women’s empowerment programs. HAC-Haiti is a community development organization operating in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. Howard volunteers will also provide dental hygiene and hearing screenings.
Throughout the trip, we will keep you posted on the activities on the ground in Haiti – triumphs, tears and the toil to rebuild.
