Haiti Earthship Academy
January 4 - 29
La Gonave, Haiti

The Haiti project will be happening in January 2021, and located in the small island of La Gonave. During 4 weeks, you will have a few hours of class and theory in the morning and then practice on the construction site. This will allow us to build an Earthship Primary school for local children. Also, part of your tuition fee is going to sponsor local adults to learn how to build. They will attend the Academy with you and help building the school. This is a total win win situation for everyone!
