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.
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, an all-Haitian mix of existing teachers & new graduates
- Placement: An existing primary school in Haiti (particuarly underserved & rural schools)
- Sustained Leadership Development: Pre-service Summer Immersion training with all selected cohort members (4 weeks), followed by a 2-year fellowship of pedagogical training and leadership development modules, plus individualized coaching
- Alumni Ambassador Leadership Support
Teacher Leader Cohorts
Teacher leader candidates – all Haitians recruited locally – will be a mix of existing teachers and graduates (including teacher’s college graduates).
A Bold Innovation
- Modeling civic leadership by investing in community-led & grassroots change.
- Rooted in Haitian Culture. Respecting and integrating the assets of what is unique to Haitian culture, community, and customs into our programs.
- Network of “alumni ambassadors” to spread the model, accelerating our alumni’s leadership across sectors of Haitian society as champions of education and civic reform.
- Partnerships! We do not operate in isolation, but rather with strategic public and private partnerships to ensure maximum impact of our model.
- Robust monitoring & evaluation to identify what matters most for student success, both academically and as proud citizens.
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!
