ANSEYE POU AYITI (“Teach For Haiti” in Haitian Creole) recruits & equips local teachers in rural primary schools to transform classrooms and communities, building a Haitian-led movement of civic leaders to spread educational equity. The classroom is the unit of execution, and the communities are the unit of change for our movement. Our work is rooted in an appreciation for the assets of local culture, customs, and community, as well as redefining effective leadership as rooted in collective action. Our students will not only thrive academically but are also equipped to be successful citizens throughout their lives.
