Live Different is proud to be planning another Build with Bucket Line Builders. Whether you have been part of a past Bucket Line Builder's team or joining for the first time, we are excited to welcome you as a volunteer on this years Build.
Flying into Puerto Plata, you will have the opportunity to visit the Dominican communities that Live Different partners with and get a chance to connect with families that share a history with the your team. Then it is off to Haiti, a country that is known for its unique culture and vivid beauty. Come and learn about life in Calvaire, enjoy Haitian cuisine and break a sweat while contributing to Live Different’s projects in the community of Calvaire.
In Haiti, Live Different’s first project was building a school to serve the children of Calvaire. With the hard work of volunteers and support from Live Different donors, Ecole L’Union was able to open its doors in 2011 and today educates over 350 students. Many hours of hard work from past Bucket Line Builder volunteers have been invested in this school. Since 2016 we have been planning our second major project in Calvaire also in partnership with ASEEDH, The Freedom Village. Once built, The Freedom Village will offer living accommodations and programming to young girls who have previously been enslaved as restaveks. The term ‘restavek’ commonly refers to girls who have been sent or sold to live with another family for the purpose of domestic slavery, often receiving no schooling and exposed to abuse. After much planning and consultation, Live Different is thrilled to have broken ground on this exciting project and we are looking forward to beginning construction. As the Ecole L’Union continues to grow and phase one of the The Freedom Centre gets underway, we are excited to have you work alongside us for initiatives that directly address critical needs of the community and it's children. In the weeks leading up to the Build, you will get a profile with details about the project you will be working on.
Come and experience the power of making a difference for someone else, while being changed and impacted in the process!
Thanks for your interest in Live Different Builds! Feel free to contact us at anytime if you have any questions.
