Thinking ahead to July 2015
Our team for January 2015 is still in Haiti. . . but if you are thinking of joining us in July 2015, the dates are July 12-19. Our new policy is that you buy your own airline tickets. We recommend flying direct on American Airlines into Cap Haitian. We’ve seen deals as good as $430 from DC. Then the trip costs are $100 per day. So doing that math, we are looking at a cost of $1130 rather than the $1600 of the past. The $100 per day covers: your hotel room (double occupancy), food in Haiti (a pretty nice dinner and breakfast, and a simple packed lunch), access to clean water (bring a canteen for the day), transportation while in Haiti, and translators at your job site. You will need a little extra cash to bring down with you for incidentals, beverages or snacks, souvenirs and the exit tax ($40). We plan to work Monday – Friday building a house, doing a water project and running a vacation bible school. Then we will take off on Saturday as a fun day either seeing the sights or enjoying the beach.
