Construction projects: worked side by side with the community on a variety of construction projects, including building and painting new classrooms and installing playground equipment at CMMC, building a perimeter wall at La Reference, helping with the construction of the vocational school Men Nan Men, and a new church building in the remote village of Kwa Koq.
Summer camp programs: built relationships with local school children and two orphanages, engaging through summer camp activities such as educational games, sport, art and dance. We combine the joy of interacting through play while instilling values of cooperation, rule following and good sportsmanship.
Sharing skills: connected with school age children and local adults through art classes, teacher training sessions, business seminars, and English conversation practice.
Yearly soccer tournament: brought the community together to compete in a yearly soccer tournament involving 4 local teams from 4 different towns. Soccer is the most loved sport in Haiti.The KONEKTE soccer tournament was made possible by coaches from Princeton FC who accompanied us to Haiti on several occasions. Each time the games bring an enthusiastic, and competitive, audience of supporters from the surrounding area.
We hope to continue our group trips to Haiti when circumstances allow.
