The World Treasure Hotel on Ile a Vache, Haiti will soon be open for business. This affordable inn is great place to stay and relax. But even relaxing can work up an appetite and, currently, the only restaurants in the area are in high-end hotels and charge outrageous prices! Your help adding a restaurant to this local hotel will boost the economy by using local vendors and workman. Once open, it will employ neighbors and be a delicious place for the community and visitors to meet and eat.
Meeting for a meal is a popular way to enjoy your family and friends or get to know someone new. Unfortunately, expensive hotels house all the restaurants on Ile a Vache leaving no affordably priced dining experience for locals, volunteers and visitors on a budget to eat. Many tourist...and most locals...can not afford a $$$$ menu leaving locals to eat at home and budget tourists to choose another destination.
A moderately priced restaurant with delicious home cooking would serve the community in a multitude of ways. First, by creating jobs for the construction of the restaurant. Once open, local cooks and wait staff can be employed and food sourced from local vendors. The community will have an affordable place to meet and eat. Tourism will also benefit from having a viable alternative to high-priced eating establishments.
By employing locals and sourcing from local vendors, this project can potentially benefit the entire island. An affordable alternative for dining has the potential to increase tourism and volunteerism on Ile a Vache which will benefit the economy of the entire island. More money in the community can support better education and other benefits for all residents of the island. The positive change just one restaurant can make is powerful.
