A small team from PEN PAPER PEACE e.V. travels to Haiti on a regular basis to visit the children and maintain personal contact with local partners. Unfortunately, due to the difficult political situation in Haiti, we are not able to travel there as often as we would like to.
No donations are used to pay for the trips. In 2008 and 2009 the flights were self-paid, in 2012, 2013 and 2015 they were sponsored by Condor.

In April 2008, Alissa Jung travels to Port-au-Prince/ Haiti for the first time.
She visits the projects of our current partner nph Germany and gets to know the two schools we are still supporting today.

In November 2009, we visit the two schools in Wharf Jeremie, one of the most disadvantaged districts of Port-au-Prince. About 300 children study here every day and get a warm meal for lunch.

The first visit to Haiti after the terrible earthquake 2010. We visit the two schools St. Nicolas and St. Emma, which have found temporary interim solutions to teach the students. And we are looking at plots of land selected by local experts that could be suitable for the new school buildings.

In 2013, we are accompanied by a student ambassador to Haiti for the first time. Since then, Malin has been continuously reporting on her impressions as a children's reporter and mobilising schools to join forces for education in Haiti.

We start our trip to Haiti in September 2015 with the beautiful prospect of participating in the inauguration of the two schools St. Nicolas and St. Emma. The schools had been destroyed by the severe earthquake in 2010. As a result, we had launched appeals for donations and, together with the support from Germany and a considerable sum of money donated by Ein Herz für Kinder e.V., we bought two plots of land and had the two schools built by local experts - this time earthquake-proof.

It is wonderful to finally be able to see the completed schools with our own eyes and to feel the joy they spread, the joy that there are two places where children can learn without worries, where they are encouraged to dream and where they receive support to make these dreams come true. Moved and rich in impressions and new experiences we start our journey back home. At the same time, we feel the responsibility to continue to pay the running costs.
