We know the global consciousness of people is becoming more and more attuned to the needs of developing countries. Ventures In People recognized that need in Haiti with its first trip in 1979. VIP is an independent, volunteer, non-profit 501c3 organization. VIP has grown from the original primary health care endeavors, to community building through outreach activities, an education sponsorship program, and 4-H Clubs and clean water.

People from all walks of life are needed. You may want a vacation from your usual job and get involved in something different. Room and board is arranged by the Trip Leader. Guest houses and hotels are chosen with care.

In the short run, Haitians have been badly hurt by turbulent times in government and natural disasters. In the long run YOU CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION!!

Everyone's safety is a matter of concern to VIP and our associates in Haiti. We monitor the feasibility of travel closely through informed personnel in Haiti and the US State Dept., Washington DC. All trip participants are registered with the American Consulate in Port au Prince, Haiti stating our location in Haiti for communication at all times.

THE CHALLENGE IS COMMITMENT - THE OPPORTUNITY IS SERVICE!

Comments from former trip participants...

I didnít think I would think about water so much.

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.
