Mission Haiti is an amazing organization. Mission Haiti partners with Haitians to support sustaining projects. In addition to supporting projects in education, agriculture, and care for the elderly - Mission Haiti supports individual Haitians to accomplish their hopes and dreams.

I went on a trip to Haiti to volunteer with Mission Haiti. They are doing amazing things, from giving children education to nursing sick infants back to health. My experience was extremely immersive and I feel priveliged to have been a part of such a great mission.

I am lucky enough to say I experienced what an incredible nonprofit Mission Haiti Inc is and witnessed what outstanding work that is being done by this group. I travelled with the president Jimmy Dunn, a few board members, and a couple other volunteers who wanted to see what was truly being done in Haiti by our nonprofit. I got to play and talk with kids from three different schools that Mission Haiti donates to and learn more about what they learn in school and how much they enjoy it. I was able to see and learn what more can be done for these kids, and being a college student myself, I was able to see what ideas that Mission Haiti has that can help the kids develop. We were able to see what the farm system project that we are funding looks like, and what improvements are needed to make this a better functioning and useful tool for the Haitians. The president showed us how much improvement has already been made so far and I really could not imagine what they would have to do for food without the improvements that Mission Haiti has funded and helped build. The last big project that I was fortunate enough to experience was the elderly homes that Mission Haiti strives to make as comfortable and helpful as possible. We spent a day giving the elderly women a "spa day" by massaging them, motioning their dry hands and feet, and painting their finger nails. I was able to learn first-hand how important it is to take care of these women who otherwise would be alone and dying on the streets, whereas they are given a much better life here at the home that Mission Haiti supports. Overall, seeing all that Mission Haiti Inc does and pushes to do in the future makes me realize that this is a nonprofit that I want to be involved with for the rest of my life.

Mission Haiti Inc is an organization that incorporates it's community in a truly magical way. The opportunities it allows its volunteers to have is one that allows each volunteer to connect with the charity on a personal level. The trips it organizes, in addition to the stories and passion it brings back to Minnesota has ignited a community to truly give itself to this cause. The relationship this organization allows its volunteers to forge with the Haitians they encounter makes the connections to it even stronger and because of this it is allowing multiple generations to be involved in a worthy cause.

I've had the privilege and opportunity to see the good works of Mission Haiti in action over the past 10 years through volunteering and other benefits. Most recently had the opportunity to take a trip to Haiti and personally witness the good works of Mission Haiti. last month with my parents, son, family members and friends. I witnessed the resources of Mission Haiti put to work building a sustainable model through education, health and wellness, nutrition and agriculture. But most of all, I had the benefit of seeing firsthand the devotion, commitment, love and resources of Mission Haiti and the life changing effect this mission has on the lives of so many.

Mission Haiti Inc. granted me the opportunity to witness, learn about, and experience Haiti in an entirely novel way. On my trip I was I able to see the both the sorrows, and overwhelming joys of the resilient and determined Haitian people, and to participated in meaningful dialogue about the struggles they face. Furthermore, I was inspired to see the incredible work Mission Haiti has been doing in Haiti for over ten years and was left with a sense of promise and a desire to continue working with Mission Haiti to bring about sustained change.

Mission Haiti is a fantastic organization, it is absolutely the best non-profit that I have worked with. I have known about Mission Haiti since I was in kindergarten. My elementary school, Annunciation, supports a sister school down in Haiti. Through Mission Haiti, I have been able to learn about the children down there as well as the Adults and Culture. My senior year in high school I traveled with Mission Haiti to Haiti. I was able to see the children we have supported, ages kindergarten to University. Being able to travel to Haiti and see what I have supported and cared about was an amazing experience.

I have a very personal experience with this nonprofit because I took my very first trip to Haiti with them this past January. The trip exceeded my expectations and was a great influence on my decision to continue to support the organization

I grew up hearing a lot about Haiti. It was something else to go there myself. I went to Haiti last summer and it was an experience I'll never forget. To see how people live in developing countries was extremely eye opening. Mission Haiti pushed me out of my comfort zone by taking care of babies and interacting with people of a different culture. I hope to volunteer again ASAP.
