Charting a path from Waterloo, Canada to Cap-Haitien, Haiti: 5 airports and 15 hours later

Our team arrived in Cap-Haitien today safe and sound after a long day of traveling. Team members joined us from Dallas, Waterloo, Miami, and Louisville! Here is the team arriving in our 5th (and final) airport of the day ... Cap-Haitien, Haiti!

We have an amazing group. This was made even more clear tonight when we debriefed our experiences on this first day. It was great to hear many members of the team talking about first impressions, early expectations, and motivations for participating on the team.

Most importantly, it was clear that everyone is eager to listen and learn. This has already started but will be ramped up tomorrow when we visit multiple schools and NGOs in Cap-Haitien.

It always fascinates me how, despite some differences, there is so much that connects us in the global village. Let the learning continue!
