What do I need to bring with me on my trip?

How will I communicate with the people there?
Haitians have two official languages – Haitian Creole and French. All Haitians speak Creole. Most of the time we will have someone with us that speaks English and Creole, but the Haitians would be pleasantly surprised if you came prepared knowing a few Creole words.

What is Haiti’s story?
We have heard the phrase “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” This definitely applies to Haiti Outreach’s work to help Haiti become a more developed country. If we do not understand their history and the challenges that they have endured, we will neither be able to understand their situation today nor be able to generate the most appropriate programs to work with them.
