-basic skills in Creole -work in water sanitation projects adapted for situations such as Haiti -experience as an ESL teacher -previously a volunteer in Haiti -willing to lend a hand with construction (training in brick-laying) I have completed the Byki emergency relief course for Creole, which gives you a basic knowledge of "survival phrases," including medical phrases. I spent two weeks in Haiti and discovered that, while I need to be immersed in the language and of course do more study, I could communicate most necessary information. My science fair project this year involves water sanitation solutions for situations such as the one found in Haiti. I am by no means claiming to have the technical expertise of an engineer, but I hope that I can gain some insight and apply it when I return to Haiti. I taught an informal English class in Belize for a few weeks, and I am looking to become involved in teaching English in my local community. I spent two weeks in Haiti in summer 2011, where I worked on construction. I have also worked on construction in Belize.

Skill Offered: 
Will do anything you have the resources to teach me to do. I have experience with some construction, disaster clean-up, and also medical care. Also can teach crafts. Speak Creole at beginner level. Experience with Haiti post-quake -- volunteered with medical clinic in May.
Goods Offered: 
Coffee, food, clothing, toys

As I said earlier, I will do any task that I know how to do, or anything your organization has the resources to teach me. I work well with children and women in particular, but I am also very willing to clean and build. I am very dedicated and impassioned to help rebuild Haiti. I have seen first hand in my short time in Haiti earlier this year that the good intentions of many people across the world who donated to assist with disaster relief, have been misused by those in power because few Haitians are feeling the effects of this generosity.
