Incentive Kay (March 17-24, 2012)
Haitian families earn kays by planting trees, gardens, and erosion controlling hedgerows, sending their children to school, installing water cisterns, and tending fish hatcheries. After hiking miles into the mountains, BGF volunteers build a 12’ x 20’ kay, helping this Haitian community rebuild its environment and future. This simple home represents years of participation in CODEP by each new homeowner. The pressure-treated, hurricane- and termite-proof homes are a huge upgrade for these worthy families. To date, we have built 16 kays.
