Volunteering Haiti opportunities

From education to agriculture programmes, there are plenty of volunteering in Haiti opportunities for those who would like to contribute to earthquake reconstruction and general development of this country.

Improving the health and living conditions of people in Haiti is another reason to volunteer. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, here are some programs you may be interested in.
