Summer Camp for Kids in Rural Haiti

Volunteer in rural Haiti this summer (2012) helping to run a summer camp for kids! US-based Volunteers For Peace has been working with Haiti-based CODEHA, a grassroots youth organization based in La Valle de Jacmel, for over 15 years! Its aim is to bring children, families and communities together around the needs, development, education and rights of young people. VFP is currently collaborating with them on their cultural exchange program “Building Bridges,” sustainability and gardening projects and on bringing clean water to their schools.
