This project allows students who learn English for free at the English in Mind Institute (EIM) to give something back to their communities by teaching English for free in local orphanages to at least 30 children. The kids in the orphanages not only learn valuable language skills that will help them later in life, but find the classes enriching and enjoyable. As the kids gain confidence, the English students also gain skills as teachers which will help them find gainful employment.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In Haiti, there are few free opportunities for adults living in poverty to develop job skills and find work. There are also very few opportunities for orphaned children to get the help they need to grow into tomorrow's leaders. This leaves many individuals in both groups very unlikely to be able to escape poverty.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will help both groups. Adult students learning English at EIM will have a chance to develop their skills as teachers, and orphans will learn a new language while becoming more confident through enriching, fun classes. The adult students volunteer to teach, so your donations will be spent only on their transport to and from the orphanages, food when they spend their day working, and school supplies for the kids.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will equip our adult English students with the skills they need to find employment as teachers. It will also help orphaned children realise that they have the potential to not only survive, but excell. For both groups, the impacts of this programme will be felt for years to come!
