The Experience

Everything we do in Haiti is for the kids.

View Upcoming Builds

Come to Haiti ready to help out and leave inspired, ready to continue lifting kids towards brighter futures. You will work alongside a local organization, supporting them in their vision to improve their community and shape a better future for themselves and their children.

Highlights of a Build to Haiti

You will spend your time in Cap Haitien, a city of about 190,000 people on the north coast of Haiti.

High in the hills, you’ll experience breathtaking views as you stay in the Royal Residence—a hotel with 24-hour security that overlooks the city.

At Royal Residence, you’ll have the chance to experience their pool, dining area, and plenty of hangout spaces which all have spectacular views. Meals are carefully prepared and dietary restrictions can be accommodated if notified in advance.

You’ll work on projects in and around the community of Calvaire. We partner with a Haitian organization called ASEEDH (Association Envangelique Enfants Demunis Haitien) and together with volunteers, we’ve built a school for children in the community and a transition home for girls who have been rescued from domestic slavery.

Get a glimpse into Haiti’s rich beauty and difficult history. An excursion to the historic Citadelle will teach you about the struggles Haitian people have endured over time. You will get a chance to understand the true impact of your work.

Brighter Futures Through Education and Freedom

Ecole L’Union: Education for all

There are not enough government-run schools across the country, and 80% of people in Haiti are living in poverty. Ecole L’Union was built in a very special hillside community. While the community lacks access to electricity, running water and proper sanitation, they now have education—and over time, education can change everything! You can help support children as they chase their dreams by joining our #LoveLegacy community.

The Freedom Village: Rescue and healing

One out of every fifteen children in Haiti live as a Restavek. Families struggling with poverty make the difficult decision to send their kids away to live with host families in hopes that they will have a better life in exchange for doing chores. It’s a modern version of slavery, and it leaves children vulnerable. The Freedom Village will provide a safe, home environment for young girls to heal as they receive access to education, counsellors, life-skills training, and the support they need to thrive.

Your Journey Begins!

After arriving in Cap Haitien, you’ll get settled before heading out on an awareness tour to Ecole L’Union and the Freedom Village. In the evening, we’ll host an orientation and you’ll have the chance to meet the staff who’ll be involved throughout the Build.

Project Days

You’ll work alongside the community, contractors, and neighbours on projects at Ecole L’Union or the Freedom Village that will benefit children who are chasing their dreams. You will also have a chance to spend time with a family in the community while gaining an understanding that can change everything.

Hike to the Citadel

See the beauty of Cap Haitian from above. You’ll hike up to the Citadel Laferriére—a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site—to witness some of Haiti’s history up close and personal through this amazing structure. This iconic fortress was once the crown jewel of Haiti’s national defense.

Day Off

Haiti is a beautiful place that you should experience for yourself. You’ll have the day off and will be able to choose between relaxation or adventure. Afterwards, we’ll take part in our final debriefing where we will explore ways we can continue to make a difference locally and globally.

It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Later!

It’s time to say “see you soon” as you pack up and begin travelling home.
