Help Rose Find Gainful Employment

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

This project will provide a year of English Education for Rose. Rose has always struggled to find gainful employment. But today, Rose is learning a job skill that is in great demand in Haiti - English. Rose will use her new language skills to find work and help her community. We asked Rose about her new skills: "Since my childhood I always dreamed to be someone useful in the society. Now, with English I have learned I [teach] children at orphanages and translate in my church for free!"

Challenge

More than two thirds of Haitian adults lack formal employment and more than 50% of the population lives on less than $1.25 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 Rose, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.

Solution

By ensuring that Rose can continue studying English for free at the English in Mind Institute, you can help her develop the skills she needs to find gainful employment. Rose will also use her English skills to help her community through her work with local orphanages and her church.

Long-Term Impact

Your donations will give Rose the means to support herself and her family into the future. This will let her escape poverty for good.
