Last June eight Marlette High School students and 8 teachers/parents traveled to Haiti after raising $34,000. The team raised the money to purchase water filters, hire translators and cover room and board while in Haiti. The team had a support group of students, parents and teachers who lead fundraising events to help meet financial goals. The team installed 29 water filters in homes, did inspections on about 12 previously installed filters. The team was also able to spend time teaching English in a school, playing volleyball with local teens, and help prepare and eat a traditional Haitian meal with a local family.
