Like last year, with the Haitian non-government organization “Espoir Avec Christ”, we are organizing a five day Youth Retreat which will be held in February 2015. This event will again take place during the same weekend as the annual Haitian ‘Carnival’ which is similar to Mardi Gras festivities.
This year the Youth Retreat will be offered only to forty-five orphans, aged 16 to 23, to give them a break from the domestic life they live every day and to provide a positive, safer option to ‘Carnival’. We hope that during the retreat they will make new friends, have a relaxing time with other youth who experience the same kind of life, and learn more about life.
We are hoping to find a guest house which has reasonable rates and can receive this large group. If this is possible, and our fundraising is successful, the retreat will provide the orphans an opportunity to visit a new place, perhaps sleep in a regular bed for the first time in their lives, and enjoy better food.
Donate a $100 to this project in Haiti to send an orphaned youth to this upcoming retreat!
