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, 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 worked with two different organizations in January 2013 - Sonje Ayiti and International Child Care - Grace Children's Hospital (ICC), working on further developing job and aid initiatives with the Haitian people.
