This project will provide a year of English Education for Elie. Elie has never been to an English school before, but he's self studied and practiced with his friends for years. As a result he aced his entrance exams and is now an advanced student. Elie 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 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 Elie, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.
By ensuring that Elie can continue studying English for free at the English in Mind Institute, you can help him develop the skills he needs to find gainful employment.
Your donations will give Elie the means to support himself and his family into the future. This will let him escape poverty for good.
