The Presbyterian Hunger Program is promoting experiential trips which analyze the root causes of hunger and poverty while calling participants to engage in solidarity actions with our local and global partners.
Believing in the beauty and dignity of all God’s children the Presbyterian Hunger Program is pleased to offer the chance to connect with the people of Haiti as we know them — hardworking farmers, industrious mothers, and resilient families who work hard to put food on the table and send children to school. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the strength, struggle and spirit of Haiti.
Purpose: Examine the root causes of poverty facing Haiti, including agricultural, trade and climate change issues.
