Just back from Haiti – lots of news to share!

August 9, 2010

A delegation of seven volunteers of the I Have a Dream Foundation, Richmond, “Hinche Scholars” project has just returned home after five exhausting, but rewarding days in Haiti.

Our IHAD team with the 2010 Hinche Scholars - August 2010

The goals of our trip were definitely met, if not exceeded in most cases. Highlights of the voyage included – a chance to meet, live with, and really “get to know” the Hinche Scholars. We also had the chance to meet with the Director of USAID for all of Haiti, as well as other officials at the embassy.

We visited the cities of Port-au-Prince (Petionville, Delmas, Centreville), and we also widely travelled throughout the Central Plateau region – including Hinche, Mirebalais, Cerca Carvejal, and many other beautiful areas. Each day we worked 5am-midnight or later, gathering video, pictures and truly assmilitaing to life with our very gracious Haitian hosts.

More news to come in the next few hours, days – as well as videos, pictures, and more! Please check back and remember to donate if you can – either via the PayPal link below or through the mail to our IHAD headquarters (address at left).

Thanks so much, or in Kreyol – “mesi anpil!”
