In 2012, a team of 31 U.S. and Canadian Convergint colleagues partnered with Poured-Out, Inc., spending five days in Haiti building a school/church, installing 47 residential water filters and large industrial filters for three orphanages. This now provides 4,110 gallons of clean water per day, supporting the daily water requirements for over 800 Haitians.
This was all made possible through the team’s fundraising within Convergint and from friends and family. The donations funded travel and living expenses for the team, buildings materials for the school/church, 47 residential water filters, three industrial water filters and employment of 22 Haitian constructions workers, and six translators.
Since this first trip in 2012, colleagues have been planning and serving on subsequent trips to benefit the communities of Haiti.
