On this trip to Haiti we will meet dedicated, grassroots leaders who are building inspiring, liberating community-based responses to systemic challenges. Hosted by our Haitian partners Limye Lavi Foundation (Light of Life), we will learn about Haiti’s culture, its history and policies in relationship to the US, and experience solidarity and accompaniment in action.
With a focus on Limye Lavi’s transformative work to end the restavek (child servitude) system, part of our time will be spent in a rural community, living in the homes of Haitian peasants: building relationships; discovering abundance in what looks like scarcity; and seeing long-term solutions, helping us make the connection with our own lives and communities at home. Daily reflection will anchor our experience.
We seek to listen, learn and be present to the lives, circumstances and relationships we experience in Haiti. Alongside our encounter with material poverty is an encounter with hope. Through this experience, participants will have the opportunity to examine their
own lives and choices in relationship to the larger global family.
The $1,500.00 fee covers trip leadership; administrative expenses; speaker honoraria; local ground transportation; and all meals and lodging.
