our Work in Haiti
Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010 and inspired by Bono and the Willowcreek Leadership Summit, fifteen experienced educators in Massachusetts wondered if sharing their knowledge and experience would make a difference in the lives of their fellow teachers. For the past five years, we have led professional development seminars throughout Haiti. Teachers have received practical training in the basics of an effective classroom and content-specific modules. 95% of the participants said they apply the information from the seminars to their classroom instruction.
We began training teachers at one school, Nehemiah Vision Academy, in Chambrun (12 miles northeast of Port-au-Prince) where we tested material to know if it was relevant and useful. After three years, we expanded to five locations and 67 schools in Port-au-Prince, Les Cayes, Miragoâne, Jacmel and Léogâne. Beginning in November 2016, we will focus on training teachers in the South Department. Locations are highlighted.
