It Takes a Village and Some

Our success is based on community partnership. First and foremost it is dependent on the brilliance of our members at JE to define what they need in their own community. It also takes a broader community to make those dreams and motivations a reality!

We depend on people just like you who want to lift up individuals in this world and give them the resources to be successful in their life goals and beyond. The reality here is that Haitians don’t have access to Gofundme, Paypal, and a network of people who have the financial ability to help. They have to strive with little to nothing to make their own projects to lift their community. This is where international supporters can broaden the community and collaborate with motivated Haitians.

So how can we help?

For the moment we cannot take volunteers on site. The political instability has created an unsafe atmosphere to travel through Port au Prince. However, the Center now has stable internet and is seeking virtual volunteers. We also want to build our network of knowledgable people to help us in areas such as…..

  • Science projects
  • Screen printing
  • Coding
  • Art history and world history lecturers
  • Fashion history
  • Papermaking
  • Cultural exchange lecturers
  • Data analysis

We are also searching for professionals focusing on how to make services more inclusive to local culture and descendants of African diaspora. We are focusing on introducing new inclusive systems that relate to coding and our future library.

We need materials for the students to practice and learn with. You can also check out our needs on our wish list.

  • Screen printing screens
  • Fabric
  • Small tools
  • Office supplies
  • Sewing supplies
  • Industrial sewing equipment
  • Computers
  • Iphones

We need funds to run the facilities and pay the staff. We try to buy local whenever possible to be socially responsible to our community. Every small and large donation counts. Click here to make a donation to support a truly sustainable Haiti.
