My volunteering experience in Haiti with Travel to Help is truly unforgettable

This was my first trip to a foreign country. A recently qualified TEFL teacher, looking for teaching experience! I went to Haiti with two friends and were in Fermathe in February for a six- week placement to teach English on the Women’s Empowerment program. Picked up by a friendly driver outside the airport; thus began the experience of a lifetime. Driving through Delmas with mind-blowing traffic in all directions; taxis, tap-taps, buses, scooters, all beeping and narrowly avoiding each other, was an eye-opener. The city is a mixture of modern houses/apartment blocks (some still being constructed. Phenomenal and amazing experience in a poor country with amazing people.
