VOLUNTEER IN HAITI
Peer between palm fronds to see a few kids from the orphanage asking if you’ll take them to the beach today — an afternoon splashing in nearby Caribbean waters with an armful of your favorite neighborhood kids is something you can’t say no to.
Haiti’s bright culture and friendly attitude certainly pairs well with the warm sunny weather in this country, all but covering up the poverty-stricken and natural-disaster-ravaged nation. Not that you’d be able to tell based on the massive smiles of the kids you’re teaching. You’ll have a hard time saying goodbye to sipping out of fresh coconuts, tropical weather and impromptu dance parties with the kids you live with in the orphanage, that’s for sure.
