Our Model

Anseye Pou Ayiti envisions an education system in Haiti that affords all the country’s citizens their human right to a high-quality education by promoting teacher excellence and student success. We have a bold vision focused on reimagining the role of high-quality Haitian teacher leaders for the ultimate benefit of all students.

Our Mission

Anseye Pou Ayiti will raise education outcomes in disadvantaged areas of Haiti by recruiting and training outstanding teachers for existing schools. Transformational teaching and leadership will equip all children with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to achieve their full potential with equal opportunity, pursue lives of mutual prosperity, and contribute to a more enlightened 21st century world.

Core Program Components

  • Recruitment: An annual recruitment & selection cycle for Haitian teacher leaders
  • Placement: An existing primary school in Haiti (particuarly underserved schools)
  • Sustained Training: Pre-service training with all selected teachers (4 weeks), followed by a 2-year fellowship of training and leadership development modules, and individualized coaching
  • Alumni Ambassador Leadership Support
  • Teacher Leader Cohorts

    Teacher leader candidates – all Haitians recruited locally – will be a mix of university graduates (including teacher’s college graduates) and current teachers seeking additional training.


    A Bold Innovation

  • Recruiting top talent into the teaching profession.
  • Ongoing training throughout the school year during 2 years, coupling both content and pedagogical training.
  • Network of “alumni ambassadors” to spread the model, accelerating our alumni’s leadership across sectors of Haitian society as champions of education reform.
  • Partnerships! We do not operate in isolation, but rather with strategic public and private partnerships to ensure maximum impact of our model.
  • Rooted in Haitian Culture. Respecting and integrating what is unique to Haitian culture, community, and customs into our programs; conducting robust monitoring & evaluation of each program; and focusing on underserved primary schools, including encouraging university graduates in Port-au-Prince to work in regions across Haiti.
  • Impact

    We will transform education indicators so enrolling in primary school without completion is no longer the norm for children in underserved schools. Within five years, Anseye Pou Ayiti will improve student outcomes so 100% of our students pass the national exams and pursue secondary education. Anseye Pou Ayiti is much more than a two-year fellowship. We are investing in top Haitian talent for the long haul, so Anseye Pou Ayiti alumni ambassadors remain in Haiti and fill a critical gap in local capacity. Our alumni ambassadors will be career teachers driving groundbreaking student success, school leaders, instructional coaches, policy makers, and members of Haitian philanthropy and business sectors who continually promote equal educational opportunity for all Haitian children. As stated by Haiti’s national motto: L’union fait la force!
