Hope in the Midst of Poverty
This cross-cultural experience will likely interact with Mission Possible while in Haiti. The group will explore and learn what is being done to meet physical, spiritual, emotional, educational and social needs of the Haitian people through experiences with this non-governmental organization.
Scattered throughout the experience will be: service projects, village and city drives/walks, classroom observation (both vocational and grade-school), student/teacher/administrative/cook interaction, traditional Haitian cuisine and Haitian worship services.
This experience would cater (but is not limited) to students majoring in dietetics/nutrition, education, social work and youth ministry.
Mission Possible is a Christ-centered interdenominational organization that focuses efforts through leadership development educational programs. It provides a Christian education and nutritious lunch to 2,700 students attending 8 different schools. A vocational school at their main location also provides training in nursing and education. The group will stay in camp/dormitory-style housing.
