Child of Haiti Volunteers

We have nostaff in Ireland or Haiti; no professional fund-raisers, no paid-for offices, no charity owned transport, we pay no expenses or bonuses to anyone. Only great Irish volunteers make it happen!

For our capital building projects, our volunteers are mainly skilled workers from the construction industry and many more volunteers. They all pay their own way to and from Haiti and cover their own expenses.

We are supported by many good Irish people who help our fellow volunteers to raise the money to spend on these vital capital projects in Haiti. Every cent goes to the end use!

If you are interested in volunteering and empowering Haitian children by giving them the gift of education then please get in touch with us via the contact form below. We’d love to hear from you!

Below is a newsletter written by Child of Haiti volunteer Sandra Gunning describing her experience in Haiti working on the 2017 school reconstruction project.

“On October 1st, 7 of us traveled over to Haiti to carry out a volunteer project on a school as part of the charity Child of Haiti. Haiti, located in the Caribbean Sea is around the same size as Munster with a population estimated at 10.8 million. It is the poorest country in the northern hemisphere and due to its location it is constantly getting hampered by natural disasters such as the earthquake in 2010 that killed an estimated 230,000 and the hurricane in 2016 that killed over 1,000 people as well as leaving millions of people homeless.
