We have been working with the team of volunteers joining CHES on this trip to make our time in Haiti this summer a success. We are diligently preparing the content of the workshops on mission, vision, contracts, sales and other important fundamental business topics. These workshops will be interactive as well as practical. The women will undergo mock sales interviews; we will also accompany them on actual sales visits. There's a long to-do list in preparing for the inaugural ceremony of the food depot. We will be inviting influential members of the region. It's stirring up a lot of anticipation!
We have been working with the women farmers in Haiti as well to ensure that the workshops address their needs. We have been meeting via conference calls and they are eager for the visit. They are beginning to prepare the numerous logistics for our time together on their end.
While there, the knowledge transfer will not be one way. We plan to visit some of the farms of these women where they grow the rice, corn and beans they will be selling. CHES and our volunteer team will learn about their agricultural process.
Many, many thanks to those who've stepped up to help us in big ways. So far, we've received enough air miles for a round trip ticket and a one-way ticket, three computers, and some funds from supporters. To us, you're just as much a part of the trip as those going on the trip. We can't do it without you. We're going to continue to need your financial support as we're making the arrangements for the planned activities on the ground. Please continue to support us.
