7e Initiatives in Haiti
7e programs in Haiti explore the global and systemic dynamics that affect and shape the Global Health structure of the Haitian side of Hispaniola
7e Program Location in Cap Haitien, Haiti
Students currently traveling to Haiti on a 7 Elements program live in our partner’s Lodge located near downtown Cap Haitien. The lodge is a large home owned by our community partner, Jacques Michel, where his family also resides. Jacques has worked with the 7e team on renovating his home to make it capable of housing 7e groups and up to 35 participants at a time. Along with this, Jacques and his family work to coordinate logistical operations for 7e such as food, local safety, and bus arrangements.
