This project will provide a year of English Education for Vional. Vional has always struggled to find a job and support his family because he lacks vocational skills. Vional wants to develop the skills he needs to find dignified, living wage employment - but he can't afford to pay for his own education. That's why he needs donors like you to support him!
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 Vional, cannot afford to attend these schools. Without the means to develop their skills, many are left trapped in poverty.
By ensuring that Vional 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. Vional will also use his English skills to help his community by advocating for their needs with international NGOs.
Your donations will give Vional the means to support himself and his family into the future. This will let him escape poverty for good.
