Building Sustainable Development in Haiti Through Agricultural Training

Construction Underway!

Throughout the days of our October 18-25th Short Term Mission trip to Haiti, you could hear the constant whirring of saws, the loud banging of hammers and the calling out of orders from self-appointed crew chief Fred DeVries to six hard-working volunteers (including Fred himself).  Construction on the classrooms for the College of Agricultural Studies on the 2nd floor of the WISH Library & Conference Center building in the village of Anse a Galets has commenced in earnest, and save for some minor electrical and cosmetic work, we have completed most of the construction.
