Education

CAUSE
WHY?
Education is a proven pathway out of poverty. All persons should have the opportunity to achieve their potential and not be limited by their social condition. HAPI’s community is home to 14,000-15,000 persons. 9,800 are between the ages of 15-40, many without a highschool diploma and most who lack access to education beyond high school.

WHAT?
HAPITech is the first vocational facility in Mizak (Musac) Haiti. We offer courses in English Second Language (ESL), computer literacy, computer trouble-shooting, ceramic tiling and electrical.

Professional development opportunities are extended to HAPI staff to enhance their capacity to lead and manage. HAPI is a ‘learning organization!’

GOALS:
Achieve decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value. Reduce emigration and juvenile delinquency.

TARGETS:
Provide equal access to women and men to local and affordable technical and vocational education. Increase the number of youth and adults, ages 15 -40, who have relevant skills for employment, decent jobs, leadership and entrepreneurship, or university.

OUTCOMES:
We will increase the number of young people in Mizak who are in employment, education or training. Additionally, we will equip HAPITech students with skills that prepare them to earn higher wages than the poverty wages of less than $2 / day.
