Back2School Mission Trip for 700 boys and girls in Haiti
Organized by: Patricia B Mission Trip to Haiti
EVENT DATE Sep 27, 2014
700 boys and girls from neighboring schools in Haiti will participate in our Back 2 School Recreational and Art Project while receiving a health, dental and eye screening.
Greetings and Welcome to my Crowdrise Campaign!
This September, I will embark on my 3rd missionary trip to Haiti with the non-profit group Fleur De Vie.The Lord has placed a passion in my heart to make a difference in the lives of the children in Haiti.
Four years after the earthquake, many Haitian families struggle to send their children to school and the only way Haiti can change and have a shot at a brighter future is through Education. With an adult literacy rate of 52% and primary school enrollment rates below 65%, access to education is a key obstacle to social and economic progress in the country.
Therefore, I and a group of volunteers will host 700 children from neighboring schools in Haiti for our annual Back to School Recreational and Art Project.
We've partnered with 6 schools that are in dying need of assistance. The children will take part in a variety of fun filled and team building activities while receiving a health, dental and eye screening. This trip is being funded entirely through donations and by those going on the mission trip. Everything that will be used on the trip must be taken with us.
This includes all of the art and school supplies, games and medical supplies for our health screenings. Every penny collected will be used to directly benefit the 700 children in Haiti
It is my earnest desire to help my fellow Haitians who currently do not have the means to help themselves. I promise your donation will make a difference; it will impact the lives of the children in Haiti and support education and the arts in the country.
