Nocky is the newest trainee teacher at the English in Mind Institute (EIM) in Port au Prince Haiti. He's learning to be a teacher with the help of fellow teacher Lynda, and we hope to hire him as a full teacher in the 2014 school year. His new job will help him build a more secure future and allow him to pass his knowledge on to hundreds of students. Nocky's teacher training is funded for 2013, and we hope to train more of his classmates with your help!


Jobs in Port au Prince are difficult to come by, yet there is actually a shortage of skilled labour in sections of the city. English is a sought after skill that opens doors to jobs, but most schools which teach English are too expensive for most Haitians. Qualified English English teachers are also in high demand. Our school not only teaches English to more than 150 students, and trains teachers like Nocky. With your help, we'll be able to train more teachers and welcome more students.


By providing the funding we need to train students like Nocky, we'll be able to not only give them the income they needs to build secure futures, but add classes to our school so that we can help more Haitians gain the skills they need to find work and build a future free of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

By training our students to teach, you'll create a spaces for dozens of additional students at the English in Mind Institute. Those students will use their language skills to find work and a road out of poverty. The impact of our training programme will be felt by dozens of families for years to come, and your donation will make those positive changes possible.
