This project will provide a year of English Education for Stanley. Stanley only enrolled at the English in Mind (EIM) Institute in August of 2016. However, he's self-studied for years and his impressive abilities enabled him to start directly in EIM's Intermediate level class. We're excited to watch his skills develop even more. Stanley will use his language skills to find 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 Stanley, 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 Stanley has to bring is his text-book and hunger for knowledge. By ensuring that Stanley can continue studying English at the English in Mind Institute, you'll help him develop the skills he needs to find dignified, secure employment.
Your donations will give Stanley the means to support himself and his family into the future. This will let him escape poverty for good.
