This project will provide a year of English Education for Jerome. Jerome previously attended another English school but had completed their highest level course. Now he's joined the English in Mind Institute he has another three years of class to look forward to. Jerome 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 Jerome, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.
By ensuring that Jerome 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 Jerome the means to support himself and his family into the future. This will let him escape poverty for good.
