Anseye Pou Ayiti (Teach for Haiti)
Anseye Pou Ayiti (Teach for Haiti) works to improve the education system in Haiti not through the students, but through the teachers. They work to train and improve teachers in disadvantaged areas in order to provide a better education for the children. They have four core program components: recruitment, placement, sustained training, and leadership support. They recruit local Haitian teachers who have either graduated from university or are current teachers who desire to participate in the training. They have just begun their adventure and hope to train over 250 teachers in the next five years.
Mission Statement: Anseye Pou Ayiti will raise education outcomes in disadvantaged areas of Haiti by recruiting and training outstanding teachers for existing schools. Transformational teaching and leadership will equip all children with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to achieve their full potential with equal opportunity, pursue lives of mutual prosperity, and contribute to a more enlightened 21st century world.
Catalyst Grant. Skees Family Foundation began working with Teach for Haiti at the very start of their program in 2015 through a Seed Grant. We admire their ideas to improve the education system throughout the country in order to provide a strong, stable primary education from which the children can grow. They also go right along with our mission of jobs creation by training local teachers! We look forward to being a part of their success.
