Visit Haiti

Visiti Haiti

Experience Haiti with us! Team Tassy families average six members per household, making $35 per month. It’s easy to do the math to know that doesn’t go very far. The idea of ending poverty is overwhelming, and sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. There’s no better way to get started than to spend a few days in Haiti with us and our families.

Our team is in Haiti once a month and we invite you to be our guest on our next trip and see the impact of providing dignified jobs and training first-hand. Plan your visit by learning about the requirements and what to expect on your trip. Sign up on our Visit Haiti mailing list for our next info session and travel tips.

What to expect:

The key objective on the trip is to listen and learn and to pitch in to support our families. Be sure to keep an open mind and ask questions along the way. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with our families and our partners. Everyone is open to having a conversation, so don’t be afraid to speak up. We have standing programs managed by our Haitian team and volunteers from the community. They love when travel guests get involved, and we’ll plug you right in.

During the trip, you will…

  • Learn about Team Tassy’s core philosophy of ending poverty with jobs.
  • Contribute to ending poverty through jobs. See Trip Impact below.
  • Support our youth program and office hours by working with our students on their English skills.
