Volunteers Make the Difference

It’s true that volunteering time is part of the American culture. In Haiti, where people struggle to find employment, volunteerism is not common. In Thibeau, 30 local young Haitians are volunteering their time in support of iF Foundation projects. The group is providing critical manpower in order to support economic development in their community. The volunteers work day and night peeling yucca for the cassava factory and harvesting vegetables from a local farm used to feed area pigs, goats and rabbits – all part of iF Foundation animal husbandry projects. In return, the volunteers are using skills to improve their community and gaining an increased sense of self worth and respect from their neighbors. Edlyne Cange and Magnus Regis, iF Foundation country directors in Haiti meet with the group on a regular basis to discuss additional ways they can assist with projects, train them with additional skills and most importantly, thank them for their support!
