At Haiti Projects, we recognize that investment in education provides a return not only to the individual, but also to the larger community. As such, Haiti Projects is implementing a forward-leaning education vision, one that addresses the needs and concerns of the Fond des Blancs community and makes use of new digital resources that are available.
The Haiti Projects Library, in memory of Ellin Smalley, offers classes in practical skills such as basic English, computer use, financial literacy, business management, and health. A growing collection of books in Kreyol and French populate our new library shelves. In addition, The Library boasts a cyber cafe and a maker space where the community can learn to build almost anything. Finally, the Library includes a mobile unit that travels to local schools in the region bringing books, computers and other tools for hands-on learning, augmenting education throughout the region. These programs enhance our ability to reach, teach, and inspire thousands of people in the Fond des Blancs region.

The success of our programs offered through the Library has far exceeded our expectations. The community of Fond des Blancs is asking for better and more consistent internet connections, expanded programing and more reference volumes.
