This project will provide a year of English Education for Florence at the EIM Institute in Haiti. Florence joined EIM as a beginner back in 2011. Now, five years later, she's in their highest level class - Advanced 2. Florence is aiming to graduate this summer and she'll then use her language skills to find dignified, living wage employment. But she can't afford to pay for her own school. That's why she needs donors like you!
More than two thirds of Haitian adults lack formal employment and more than 50% of the population lives on less than $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, yet there are virtually no free English schools. Most Haitians, including Florence, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.
By ensuring that Florence can continue studying English for free at the English in Mind (EIM) Institute, you can help her develop the skills she needs to find gainful employment.
Your donations will give Florence the means to support herself and her family into the future. This will let her escape poverty for good.
