Trip Location: Port-au-Prince & Limonade, Haiti
Mission: The W&M Haiti Compact alternative break was developed for William and Mary students to participate in rebuilding and recovery after the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti and its surrounding areas. As part of a national group of teams from college across the country, our team has committed to returning to Haiti for at least four years of alternative breaks (now extended to eight), learning in-depth about social issues affecting the communities with whom we work, educating the campus and others about our experience, and serving as lifelong advocates for Haitian empowerment. The William & Mary Haiti Compact works in Cap Haitien with Sonje Ayiti on public health, education, and nutrition projects.
