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 are in the process of 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, almost completed, will be home to a learning center that will offer classes in practical skills such as basic English, computer use, financial literacy, business management, and health. A growing collection of books in Kreyol, English, and French will populate our new library shelves. In addition, The Library will boast a cyber cafe, and a maker space where the community can learn to build almost anything. Finally, the Library will include a mobile unit that will travel to the 136 schools in the region bringing books, computers and other tools for hands-on learning, augmenting education throughout the region. These programs will enhance our ability to reach, teach, and inspire thousands of people in the Fond des Blancs region.
