One year ago, we were able to underwrite a computer lab & instructor in the heart of Petion-Ville at the YWCA. Because of this young girls are obtaining computer literacy skills, taking English classes, fulfilling their school needs, and broadening their horizons. We were also able to provide STD testing and treatment, sexual education courses, self defense lessons, yoga, and a mural painting activity.
Because of the computer lab, young women have been able to enroll in on-line English classes and other technical programs. The computer lab has also allowed the young ladies to acquire new skills, but also allows them to face school demands by doing their homework and research on computers.
This year, we are gearing up to do it all over again.
In March, our Youth Empowerment will target 300 girls and boys (10- 17) in Haiti . We will be empowering young ladies and young men through targeted education, health, and arts. Alongside our programs listed below, we will be expanding the computer lab and leaving behind care packages.
We will be providing:
- Sexual Education
- STD Testing & Treatment (if necessary)
- Dental Hygiene
Day 2: Wynne Farm field trip
- Horseback Riding
- American Football
- Sustainability/ Agriculture
