Summer Tribes (and Vibes)

Sep 21, 2018 | News + Updates

Despite a break for safety concerns, older kids at the Have Faith Haiti Mission enjoyed making new friends, and having new experiences at Camp Clos and Camp CTTPB.

Thank you to the donors who made it possible: Cynthia D., Kathleen V., Pam G., Hannah J., Thomas M., Kristi Z., Laurie K. Tori M., Vicki H., Caitlin W., Carol M., Linda B., Jonathan M., Theresa R., Sharon K., Rita R., Matthew S., Beatrice E., CD W., Cynthia S., and Tom T.

For the little ones who were too young to attend camp, joined by the older kids on off days, Have Faith Haiti  was also home to one very important summer mission: transforming their environment, through learning and imagination, into the Amazon rainforest. They learned about two indigenous tribes that live in the rainforest, the Yanomami and the Baka, and divided into their own “tribes” in a four-week competition of various exercises and activities, culminating in a final performance: an original song, dance, chant, hand shake, and oral presentations in English and French.

And the winner is….Yanonami!

Join us October 14, 2018 for a one-night only special event celebrating the launch of Mitch Albom’s The Next Person You Meet in Heaven at the Detroit Opera House, benefitting the children of the Have Faith Haiti Mission and Detroit. Guests include Anderson Cooper, Jane Pauley, Sophia Bush, ‘The Detroiters’ stars Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson, Joe Dumars, Bob Costas, KEM, and a video appearance by Jim Harbaugh. Details and ticket information here
