Preparing for Haiti service-learning trip: Laurier Faculty of Education

We have an amazing team going to Haiti next week. It's hard to believe that six months of preparation is finally culminating in departure. We leave one week from today (Wednesday, May 7) and are looking forward to the first four days in a more rural location (Pignon) followed by a week in Cap-Haitien.

The team has been working on preparing conversational English classes and leadership workshops. We have also been incredibly fortunate to also receive box after box of school supplies. This week, we packed 12 suitcases of school materials, laptops, soccer supplies, and BlackBerry phones/tablets. We each also took one extra box of supplies that will get packed with our 2nd suitcase. Amazing!
