Challenge

Over 43% of Haitians are unemployed and 73% of those with jobs are under-employed, and those living in extreme poverty have virtually no opportunity to increase their earning potential. In order to improve their lives, men and women need professional skills that allow them to earn more, send their kids to school, and build a stronger future.

Solution

This project will provide the opportunity for a student to attend and get certified in a Level 1 trade such as Masonry, Electric, Welding or Concrete. Sure, it covers the costs of things like their trainers, textbooks, supplies, and safety equipment, but that is not what's exciting...The construction industry is a growing market in Haiti. Skilled laborers drastically increase their chances to find work. Their daily wage doubles - effectively giving them a path out of extreme poverty.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of learning a trade allows the graduate to find work, and increase their wage for the remainder of their new career. This has a lifetime impact on the student and their family who receives scholarship funds. The long-term impact goes beyond the student as structures will be built to higher, international construction standards preventing casualties during natural disasters.
