Haitian Connection Network provides Haitian students with English courses, higher education online, and job placement through our Student Computer Center, which is being rebuilt in our new location, Montrouis, Haiti. Help build a better educated Haiti.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
What happens to those cute Haitian children once they grow older? Sponsors stop donating. In 2010, Haiti lost 28 of 32 higher education institutions in the earthquake. Haiti has an extreme demand for educated workers, but without access to higher learning, Haitians remain uneducated and unemployed. Haiti is a country full of potential for self-reliance, but is overshadowed by poverty. This project will help provide the infrastructure for higher education students in Montrouis, Haiti.
How will this project solve this problem?
Haitian Connection Network (HCN) is relocating to Montrouis, Haiti, where it is partnering with Life Connection Mission. Partnering together provides students aged 5 through adult with the education they need to become self-reliant. By relocating and building a new HCN Student Computer Center, Haitian students in Montrouis will have the resources for English, higher education, and job placement programs.
Potential Long Term Impact
Educating Haitians and providing job placement assistance means Haiti will become more economically stable, alleviating poverty that has crippled Haiti for too long. This project goes beyond helping individual students. All of Haiti will be affected in the long-run.
