Our Haiti Volunteer Mission is Rapidly Approaching

There are only six short weeks until twenty Checkers employees embark on our annual Haiti volunteer mission, and we are still seeking donations to assist the community of Ouanaminthe, Haiti. In one month, we’ve raised $4,725, which is approximately 24% of our $20,000 goal. While we deeply appreciate the contributions we’ve received so far, we still have a long way to go. Travel expenses for our employees will be covered, however, we are still seeking donations to cover the cost of materials and equipment needed for community projects.

Clean water is essential in these communities and implementing a water purification system will be a top priority project for our volunteer team. Water is, unfortunately, the most costly of all the materials needed, which is why additional funds are critical to our volunteer effort successfully changing the quality of life in the Ouanaminthe community. With the start of the new year, now is as good a time as any to make a contribution towards improving the lives of people around the world, and you can do so by clicking here, or pressing the Go Fund Me button below. This mission is extremely important to Checkers and we hope to continue this tradition for many years to come.

Checkers employees on the 2015 Haiti volunteer mission

Checkers President & CEO Ray Torres helps out in the classroom during our 2015 mission.

In a partnership with COCINA, or the Coalition of Children in Need Association, we will be working at Institution Univers, a K-13 school. Institution Univers encourages students to pursue opportunities in higher education, but also offers an expanding vocational program and aims to have 30% of newly created, local jobs filled with vocational students. The overall goal of Institution Univers is to raise a new generation of leaders that can build a stronger Haiti, a goal which has seen success; as of 2009, six Institution Univers students have returned to work and serve in Haiti after receiving a college degree. At Checkers, we consider it a privilege to assist these young men and women on their path to higher education. We will be teaching and practicing English with the 11th-13th-grade students so that they will be able to pass the knowledge along to their peers.
