Thanks for sharing the Caribbean Culture Fest photos, thanks for sharing your meeting with me, and especially thanks for all you do to keep Columbia’s diversity and inclusion values alive
The trip with Build Haiti Foundation was an eye-opening, rewarding, and transformative journey. I came away from Haiti with a sense of accomplishment and pride not just for my contributions, but also for the Build Haiti Foundation’s rapid progress in building and opening a medical clinic in Camp Coq. It was great to see the foundation’s vision coming to life and the lasting impact it is clearly making for the people of Camp Coq and Haiti. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a humbling and fulfilling experience.

Deciding to go on the Haiti Mission Trip was an experience that I will not forget! Not only did I get to understand my heritage and visit my parents’ hometowns, but I was also able to help those in need. The Global Leadership Program provides students like myself with the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and apply them to the real world. As the NAACP President of the University of Maryland- College Park this past year, I was able to apply my experience on my Trip to Haiti to lead the organization in a successful year. Learning to work with students from different backgrounds has expanded my perspective and appreciation for the world and the cultures that lie within it.

My two trips to Haiti as a BHF volunteer were eye opening, enriching experiences. My first visit was in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake and accompanying me were my two college age children. We helped lay the groundwork for some of BHF’s contributions of that period which included community education and building a health clinic. My son and daughter received some valuable public relations experience behind a camera.
A year later, I returned to Haiti, but this time with my sister, nephews, niece, a good friend and his son. We continued with our community relations efforts as participants in large community forum in Camp Coq. The four teens accompanying me had teaching experiences at Ecole Bethesda, which was gratifying for them and the local students. We toured BHF’s newly built clinic, a result from the previous year’s efforts.
BHF is a fabulous organization. It’s leadership takes great care to ensure positive experiences and personal safety while doing important work, making lifelong friends along the way. It’s a combination that can’t be beat.
