THE STORY:

This winter, several Dartmouth students and I are heading to a village outside of Port-au-Prince in Haiti where we'll spend a month working in clinics and teaching public health seminars. Several of us are EMTs, others in our group have a background in education and public health, and all of us are hoping to learn and grow as we engage in a meaningful cultural exchange. While we're there, we hope to be able to increase the local clinic's capacity by providing some extra hands and needed supplies. Additionally, we'll be teaching workshops and seminars on a range of topics: from classes on puberty for Haitian youth and talks about women's health at community gatherings, to basic first aid skills workshops for those living and working in remote areas.

 

You're support of this trip would be greatly appreciated! Your donations will help us 1. Get there! A small amount of money raised will go towards plane tickets and compensating our hosts. 2. Make a difference. We'll be bringing baby clothes, medications, teaching aides and other supplies, and your contributions will help us better serve the community. Please feel free to contact me with questions and thank you in advance for your support!

Hi Emma, I saw a very moving Bread and Puppet mini-show on Haiti--the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere--a couple of weeks ago, and think it is great that you fighting the good fight. I hope this small donation helps. Do you know Asher Leher-Small. He will be in Haiti this fall. By the way Zen and the Art.. is an old favorite. 2 years ago
