This year we have chosen a very special location, as it is directly related with one of our speakers, Lucia Lantero.
We want to support her project named Ayitimoun Yo by participating with volunteers who, during July, are able to get involved in training and educational work with children attending the center and its surrounding area.
What is Ayitimoun yo?
Ayitimoun yo was created in 2010 as an initiative created by Alexis Derache and Lucía Lantero. They visited Haiti with the intention of participating on a course in permaculture and reforestation. During their stay there, they had the chance to get to know the hardships many homeless Haitian children confront daily. They then decided to create a Welcome Center to cover the vital needs of these children. Presently, the school Works with over 60 full-board children, but it also helps and supports children from nearby villages.
