Darline, the Scholarships Coordinator for MBB in Haiti, has reason to be happy. She and three dozen MBB Scholars just spent a week at the beach! What's not to like about that?
Whereas the annual Leadership Trainings in S.Sudan take place on a dusty compound that lacks most amenities, the Leadership Training in Haiti took place during Christmas week at a stunningly beautiful conference center fronting on the Caribbean Sea.
The MBB Scholars and their chaperones enjoyed skills building activities, computer classes, team exercises--and time in the surf. For some, it was the first time to see the ocean. For all, it was welcome respite from the unrelenting stress of poverty. Life is good! Stay tuned for more pix in next week's blog post.
