This project will provide a year of English Education for Jean. Jean joined the English in Mind Institute two years ago. Since then his dedication has meant he's achieved not only high marks, but also a nearly flawless accent as well. Jean 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 Jean, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.
By ensuring that Jean can continue studying English for free at the English in Mind Institute, you can help him to continue develop the skills he needs to find gainful employment.
Your donations will give Jean the means to support himself and his family into the future. This will let him escape poverty for good.
