A cross-cultural initiative empowering young people to make a sustainable difference in the world

The Haiti Plunge is a cross-cultural educational program initiative set up for high school and college youth to prove that young people can make a difference in the world. The program takes place in the mountainous Cabaret Region of Haiti, 58 miles north of Port au Prince.

For 28 years the Haiti Plunge has been sending mission teams exclusively to this area to sustainably develop a nine-village agricultural cooperative, with the goal of empowering the Haitian people to take charge of their own future and their country.

 

The Haiti Plunge Inc. sends eight teams to Haiti annually. Seventy percent of every team are students, who are responsible for raising all the funds necessary to participate. They are assisted by Haiti Plunge staff, medical personnel and various professionals or skilled workers who will teach the population.  

Haiti Plunge Inc. takes every precaution for team safety. When the team lands in Haiti, they are met by the Haitian staff at the airport and are transported by the organization’s vehicles directly to their residence in the mountains. Access to medical care, secure shelter and protected food and water supply are provided.
