About Teach For Haiti
We believe that all children can learn and succeed, and we seek to recruit, train, and support high-quality teachers where they are needed most.
The Haitian education system faces both access and quality challenges, which continue to stifle the potential of generations of children who exit the school system ill-equipped to fully engage as Haitian citizens and contribute to the society’s development. These challenges disproportionally affect children from low socio-economic groups and those from rural areas of Haiti.
TEACH FOR HAITI aims to transform Haiti’s education outcomes so enrolling in primary school without completion is no longer the norm for rural children.
