Challenge Options

Water Haul Challenge Why: Many Haitians don't have access to clean water. In the area where One 17 International operates, the average family walks 2–4 miles over the course of the day in order to haul water for bathing, drinking, and cleaning.  Challenge: Carry two gallons of water for two miles. Suggested length: 3–5 days

Electricity Challenge Why: Electricity is a luxury in Haiti that the vast majority of our students do not enjoy at home. The average American consumes 10,812 kWh per year of electricity while the average Haitian consumes just 43 kWh per year.  Challenge: Experience life with no electricity: no TV, no lights, no stove or oven, and limited heating. Suggested length: 24–48 hours

Poverty Line Challenge Why: The average family in our school lives on less than $2 per day. Imagine having to pay for food, housing, schooling, and other basic needs on that small of a budget. Challenge: Eat on less than $2 per day. Suggested length: 3–5 days

Rice and Bean Challenge Why: Rice and beans are widely and cheaply available in Haiti, which means they're a staple of the Haitian diet. As any of our serving teams will tell you, spaghetti is also a cheap staple for any meal. Challenge: Eat nothing but spaghetti, rice, and beans. Suggested length: 5–7 days
