In 2010, Haiti lost 28 of 32 higher education institutions in the earthquake. Haiti has an extreme demand for educated workers, but without access to higher learning, Haitians remain uneducated and unemployed. Haiti is a country full of potential for self-reliance, a goal overshadowed by poverty. Providing the means for Haitians like Escane to become educated and gainfully employed helps alleviate poverty, one student at a time.


Through Life Connection Mission's division, Haitian Connection Network, students are able to earn online higher education. At the Student Computer Center in Montrouis, Haiti, Escane has access to the internet, a laptop, online higher education programs, on-site tech help and staff, business mentors, & hands-on seminars. Also, Escane receives 1 meal per day to help him focus. Through HCN, Escane receives job placement assistance to help him secure gainful employment in Haiti following graduation.

Long-Term Impact

An outgoing man, Escane is friendly, professional, and a team player. After graduation in 2016, he desires to work in human resources management and development, and his dream is to be the CEO of a food and beverage company. This opportunity for higher education and job placement assistance means that Escane, and other Haitians like him, can become more economically stable, and better able to provide for themselves and their families.
