October Kozefò Trip - October 16th - 22nd, 2018
We are thrilled that you are considering traveling to Haiti with Kozefò! Our main purpose of this trip is to build relationship with the students, their families, and the staff at A New Arrival Center Primary School in the Pernier neighborhood of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. We hope that you are excited to experience a week of new adventures using the gifts that God has given you!
On this page, you will find all of the resources you need to prepare for the trip in October. Please review all of the information to make sure that you have everything you need.
If you have any other questions, you can always contact Steve Asper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important Dates to Remember
Before traveling with Kozefo, you will need to purchase travel insurance. We recommend Volunteer Card, which insures trip delays, doctor visits, medical evacuations, and baggage loss. Choose a plan that is right for you.
Medical recommendations can be found here. You may want to discuss your travel plans with your physician and make decisions regarding vaccinations and preventative medications.
