Terre Sel

Part of the bumpy journey up the mountain to Terre Sel.

6 degrees of separation; the theory that we can connect to anyone in the world through 6 relationships. In other words, person A needs a maximum of 5 people to connect to person B, supposing person A doesn't know person B. Volunteerism illustrates this perfectly.

Craig Kielburger of Free the Children comes to Halifax and gives a presentation to students.

Jeff Lewis, principle of local high school was a missionary in La Gonave, Haiti.

Students from local high school decide to raise funds to build a school in Haiti.

Robin & Emily visit Haiti and take cash donations for a school in crisis.

Robin & Jeff were university roommates and so a visit is made to the future school site along with cash donations given to Robin by fellow workers who are also anxious to contribute to something bigger than themselves.

A great partnership between people in Halifax, Nova Scotia and people in Terre Sel, Haiti.
