Comments from former trip participants...
didnít think I would think about water so
It was good to escape the hustle and bustle
of our American lifestyle and experience the
more laid back lifestyle of the Haitian.
Almost all Haitians walk wherever they go,
carrying their load. I wonder how far I
would walk or how much I would carry?
How hard some work... making gravel by
chipping stones with a hammer.
I was only there for ten days, but they are
ten days I will never forget.
I quickly learned that I take too many
things in life for granted.
It was amazing to see a student that VIP
educated and is now director of a home for
20 homeless children and a school for about
40 and a 4-H leader for 80.
The hired driver became so impressed with
the work of VIP he donated $50.
