Give Denis Job Skills

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a year of English Education for Denis. Denis is an Advanced student and he's learning English to help advance himself in his work as a civil engineer. His language skills help keep him in dignified, living wage employment - but he can't afford to pay for his own school. That's why he needs donors like you!

More than two thirds of Haitian adults lack formal employment and more than 50% of the population lives on around $2 a day. Despite high unemployment, there is actually a shortage of skilled labour in Port au Prince. English speakers can find work in hotels, restaurants, and offices, but English schools are usually very expensive. Most Haitians, including Denis, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.


Your donations will help support EIM's running costs, so all that Denis has to bring is his text-book and hunger for knowledge. By ensuring that Denis can continue studying English at the EIM Institute, you'll help him develop the skills he needs to stay in gainful employment and to keep providing for his family.

Long-Term Impact

Your donations will give Denis the means to support himself and his family into the future. This will let him escape poverty for good.
