What Can I Donate?

Donations Needed for Sustainable Growth

We are always accepting instruments and other supplies to accompany us on our trips to Haiti. 

Cash donations are also very critical.

One of the difficulties with traveling are the weight restrictions and costs for checking bags. At approximately $70 per checked bag beyond our one allowance it costs several hundred dollars just to transport our donations with each trip. 

When we arrive, we are teaching in Cap-Haïtien and La Gonâve, but we are also working with and feeding the local community and getting to know the locals on a more personal level. We also use the cash and other donations to help with feeding, clothing and educating the people we serve.

It costs about $2 per child to feed a child a meal and we often do that several times to our students or children at local orphanages during our trips.

Please help us with your generous donations.
