Jennifer Roth – Help Out not Hand Outs to Haiti

Date grant awarded: August 28, 2018

Help Out not Hand Outs to Haiti is service that will address the critical need for supporting teachers and students in Haiti. Professional development is offered to Haitian teachers in the form of an annual three day intensive conference. The sessions provide focus on research-based best teaching practices – specifically classroom management and literacy – and are provided to the teachers by an American team of teachers. The content is then shared by a Haitian-led teacher team that attended the conference, and will then travel across Haiti to present what they learned.

The trips also provide tutoring support and educational field trips to former street children living at StreetHeartsHaiti.
