    Missions to Haiti Information

Are you interested in traveling to Pignon, Haiti with Promise for Haiti? Promise for Haiti has the capacity to host medical mission organizations and medical teams, church mission trips, professionals, and training teams in Pignon. We host teams and interested individuals for short term trips, and also have the ability to host longer-term stays. The first step in any case is to contact our Volunteer Coordinator to begin the application process for your missionary trip to Haiti.

Enter into a life-changing experience by volunteering in Haiti. A typical trip lasts for roughly a week and can take many shapes and forms. From working in the Hospital Bienfaisance, hosting a Vacation Bible School, or working at our schools, a trip can open your team's eyes to a new culture and give the opportunity to serve our neighbors in Haiti!
