WIT Cares: Haiti

An initiative in partnership with Mercer-MacKay Digital Storytelling & Harvest for Humanity

More than 50% of children in Haiti are unable to attend school; and even if they can attend, those schools rarely offer access to computers or technology education.

The WIT Network is helping to change that. This initiative is:

  • Building a computer lab at Bethany School in Jacmel to serve 300 children during school hours and a broader community after hours;
  • Partnering with a school in Port-au-Prince to access their computer lab during off-hours for technology training;
  • Providing software and training programs for the teachers and the students;
  • Providing a curriculum and individual career path for the students who complete the computer training;
  • Raising individual tuition fees for promising students to attend university after high school.
