For the past 14 months I have had the opportunity to work for an organization called myLIFEspeaks in the village of Neply, Haiti. This has been a challenging, but very rewarding 14 months. While in Neply, myLIFEspeaks is supporting the commUNITY through orphan care/prevention, education, and health care. I personally have been working mostly with the education side of things, but also help out with the other two aspects of commUNITY as well. I am the Director of Special Education for a special needs class that has 14 students (ranging in ages 3-21 with a variety of disabilities) and 3 Haitian teachers. I have also been a part of helping start a school that will be opening in the fall.
To be able to continue my work down in Neply, I need to raise funds to pay for plane tickets every 3 months, supplies for my classroom, medical expenses, toiletries, student loan payments, and other basic living expenses.
If you are not comfortable making an online donation, please contact me and you can send a check to my parents house or get the money to my parents and they will deposit it into my bank account.
