Latest Successes!

Hear what Berline has to say about English classes
Hear what Berline has to say about English classes

Our Haitian led programmes continue to change lives, showing once again that, together, volunteers and disaster survivors can bring about long-term, positive change. For this update, we’re featuring the latest from our English programme.

Recently, students who joined the school a little late took their latest exams, and once again, more than 70% of those who took the test advanced to the next level!

We wanted to bring this fantastic result home by featuring the voice of advanced student Berline Louima. We asked Berline to tell us how English is changing her life, and this is what she said:

According to me, the benefits of the English classes are tremendous. Some years ago, I couldn’t speak English. When I finished with school, a friend of mine asked me to teach English in high school. I was afraid to do that, but this year, I teach without any problem, because my English classes help me to be able to teach. Thanks the staff.

As more students pass exams and obtain advanced qualification in English, we’re looking forward to more success stories like Berline’s.

By donating to our work in Haiti, you made it possible for our international volunteers to set up the English school. Because of your donations, Berline and his classmates are learning and have hope for a better tomorrow.

Thanks so much for all you’ve given, and our warmest regards.

Excited to have earned his certificate!
