Year 2010 hikers raised more than $6500
for Kleiwerk International's project in Haiti!

A sincere thank you to all the hikers and sponsors who participated in 2010! 100% of the funds raised went directly to support the amazing efforts of Kleiwerks International in Haiti.

What did the money achieve?

From the Kleiwerks website: "Kleiwerks has been on the ground in Haiti since February 2010. Our primary goal is to improve long-term security on behalf of the Haitian people by offering training and technical support to individuals, organizations and communities that are interested in sustainable technologies. We are currently partnering with Haitian leaders, NGO's, and the international community to build capacity around shelter, water and food systems that are replicable, sustainable, and affordable." more info and videos here.
