The Haiti 2019 Trip Was Amazing

The team had an incredible time working and sharing with the people of Haiti. The main goal was to get solar power to the House Of Hope. The team installed a 9 panel, 4.4 KW solar power system. This provides much needed power for refrigerating food, washing clothes, and having lights and fans on.

The awesome news is that they are getting a lot of electricity from the system (esp. now during the strike). This improves the girls quality of life and reduces the monthly diesel costs, freeing up operating budget funds for other needs of the girls!!!!

The team also had the priviledge of accomplishing these additional tasks:

  1. Installed new side wall clotheslines at HoH
