Haiti Trip: March 12th-19th, 2011January 18, 2011 at 10:43 pm | No comments
In March 2011, a group of SCW volunteers joined the University of Notre Dame Haiti Program in hosting the Rebuilding Leogane Planning Workshop. During this workshop on March 15-18th, government, community, and non-profit leaders came together to discuss and plan future development in the city of Leogane. The SCW group worked diligently to coordinate workshop logistics and to facilitate participatory meetings on topics such as infrastructure, housing, education, and health.
During the week, the team also visited the sites of SCW’s school reconstruction projects and met with school directors. Group members found time to experience Haitial culture by attending a Ra-Ra parade, visiting a Voudou temple, and checking out local beaches. What a great trip!
