Pay Richardson's Salary for Eight Weeks

$300 $0
Raised Remaining


Richardson Jean lost everything in the earthquake, and since then he's been living in a tent. But despite the challenges he's faced, Richardson continued to strive for a brighter tomorrow through education. He joined the English in Mind Institute (EIM) to help build a brighter future for himself. After being a student in 2010, he became a trainee teacher in 2011, and this year we've hired him to teach his own class.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Thanks to EIM, Richardson has a job and he's saving up to find his own home. However, his salary relies on the generosity of donors like you. For Richardson, his job teaching English is about much more than just making money. His work helping others helps him stay hopeful about the future despite the challenges he faces.

How will this project solve this problem?

By keeping Richardson working as a teacher at the English in Mind Institute, we can both ensure that he has the income he needs to find a safe home and that his students learn the skills they need to follow in his footsteps to gainful employment.

Potential Long Term Impact

EIM supports Richardson as he moves toward self-sufficiency and helps the students he teaches reach the same goal. By donating, you'll help Richardson build a secure future.
