The “Educare center” is a project where unfortunate children in the area of Delmas and its surrounding will come and get an education. Based on a survey that was conducted by our team we found that 68% of the household we surveyed had at least one child who was not going to school. We have seen the needs of that community and that is why we are starting the program to see how we can meet those needs.
The “Educare center” is designed to empower the less fortunate children in Delmas area, academically and financially.
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.
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.
Functionnal 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.
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.
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
