MAII currently runs mission programs in the following towns of Northern Haiti: Bas-Limbe, Chouchou Bay, Cap-Haitian, Novion, Port-Margot. Upon arriving in Haiti, an MAII driver will pick-up and take volunteers from the airport to our guesthouse in Port-Margot, located approximately 15 miles from the city of Cap-Haitien.
Living arrangements: Volunteers typically stay at the MAII guesthouse for the duration of their trip. All volunteers should plan on sleeping in a common room on bunk beds with firm mattresses or on thick mats placed on the floor. MAII recommends that each volunteer bring his/her own bed sheets and pillowcases.
Trips to Haiti are typically one to three weeks long, but the length of a mission trip can vary depending on the interests of a particular group.
Yes. MAII offers long-term volunteering projects ranging from as short as one to twelve months, with the option to apply for a second volunteer commitment period. Long-term volunteers immerse themselves in the communities they serve, build lasting friendships, and gain valuable work experience. Volunteers who wish to stay longer than three weeks must contact MAII in advance for special arrangements.
The cost of a mission trip is $800 for a week (5-7 days) and $1,200 for two weeks (8-14 days). These fees are considered donations and generally cover your accommodation, meals, training and orientation, project transportation and materials, and MAII logistics. Fees do NOT include airfare; volunteers are fully responsible for flight bookings.
