Work in La Vallée de Jacmel

As many of you know, it’s been months since schools have been closed in most parts of Haiti. Students are eager to learn, however, the situation of the country doesn’t allow them to. Some places the students can make it to the school but the students cannot. In one of those places, DT recruit a group of young men and women to volunteer and teach all the courses. We have 8 volunteers who work everyday, and the students are so grateful for their help. 

The first week was bout 50 students, and now we have about 200 students coming everyday. Not only we want to Thank all the volunteers for their hard work and dedication, we also want to thank Mr. Thomas for letting us use his builder to make the initiative possible. Mr Thomas  is a leader in the community who’s always ready to help. 

Also Thank you to Carolyn Dikes and @TeamRedWoods, because of their support we were able to at least feed the volunteers who are teaching from 7:45 AM until 2:30 PM. 

It is wonderful to see despite everything that is going on in Haiti, the youth still has hope and ready to server their communities.

Educare

Our Approach

The Educare Center is designed to make a lasting impact by providing basic academic, technology, and art skills to underprivileged children in the community of Delmas.

 

The Structure

The center is divided in three sections:

1) Academic

Literacy is critical to economic development as well as individual and community well-being. This program is will help develop literacy and math skills as well as focus on writing, science, and math.

2) Technology

Computer literacy is essential in the modern world. Access is limited in Haiti so this program intends to address this shortfall by increasing access to technology by creating a computer lab and offering training.

 

3) Functional Art Program

The Functional Art Program will be an educational and practical component of the program. The students will learn how to use recycled materials to create art. These art projects will also be a mechanism for students to raise funds to help offset education costs.

 

The Need

Based on the survey conducted by our team, about 68% of children in the Delmas area are not going to school. That statistic can be applied to other communities in Haiti as well so this is a reflection of a large-scale urgent need, but we want to focus on one area to maximize our impact. The Educare center will be there not only to provide basic academic knowledge, but also help the children learn how to be financial stable and gain skills that will enable future success.

Program Participants

The center will start with 20 children from the community of Delmas that do not attend school because their parents cannot afford to send them. The selection of pupils will be made based on their financial need, information gathered in the survey, and some basic testing of the prospective student
