Summary

Hope for Haiti supports salary subsidies and professional learning communities for 424 educators in 24 southern Haiti communities. 186 educators will meet in three workshops to study assessment, lesson planning, and self-reflection together in their native Haitian Kreyol. This project will strengthen local community institutions and empower student achievement for over 7,000 schoolchildren, catalyzing generational change and creating opportunities across the region.

Challenge

The education system of Haiti endures chronic underdevelopment. According to USAID, half of public sector teachers in Haiti lack basic qualifications, and almost 80 percent of teachers have not received any preservice or in-service training. There is currently no standard for assessing the schools' methods. Although the government set policy in 2014 to reform the education system and introduce a Teaching Permit system, less than 1% of Haiti's 150,000 teachers have received the training.

Solution

With virtually no government funding in the education system in Haiti, salary subsidies fill a critical gap in services. When we provide facilitated Teacher Trainings, educators travel from many schools to connect and share knowledge. They bring a wide range of skills and professional experience, and they learn together in their native language. Continuously training the same teachers year after year reinforces lessons and fosters a community of practice that sustains professional development.

Long-Term Impact

Salary subsidies and classroom materials will support 424 teachers at 24 schools. Teacher training will support 186 teachers from 21 primary schools. Over 7,000 schoolchildren will continue to receive a quality education. Student achievement will improve across the region of Southern Haiti. Families will become empowered to collaborate with government and non-government partners on community-led economic development and civil cooperation.
