Challenge

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 Negot to become educated and gainfully employed helps alleviate poverty, one student at a time.

Solution

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, Negot has access to the internet, a laptop, online higher education programs, on-site tech help and staff, business mentors, & hands-on seminars. Also, Negot receives 1 meal per day to help him focus. Through HCN, Negot receives job placement assistance to help him secure gainful employment in Haiti following graduation.

Long-Term Impact

Possessing a positive attitude, Negot exhibits strong interpersonal skills, excellent written communication skills, and the ability to multitask. After graduation in 2016, he eagerly desires to work in a human resources management and development field. This opportunity for higher education and job placement assistance means that Negot, and other Haitians like him, can become more economically stable, and better able to provide for themselves and their families.
