Back from Haiti

My second trip to Haiti with Project HOPE Art ended yesterday, and it was another amazing adventure. For two weeks we worked with four different orphanages and schools, two located in the one of the poorest communities, Cit̩ Soliel. We played and danced and made art that was sometimes mixed with lessons in literacy and nutrition. Our intention was to bring fun and play to these kids that deserve so much more, yet add some educational value Рespecially in the area of malnutrition. Project HOPE Art is currently working on a cookbook using Moringa Tree leaves, which have huge health benefits and grow easily in tropical areas. More info regarding this project will come in the next few months.

If you have a group that is interested in traveling to Haiti, there is a wonderful place to stay near the airport in Port-au-Prince. The Kay Lavi House is a large, clean home with an incredibly helpful and English fluent host Kilo, a cook named Marie who makes the best dinners, and 24 hour security guard to walk you to all your connecting travel needs. It was by far our favorite place to stay, and I encourage any potential travelers to check them out (groups only please).
