About 60% of the school age population in Haiti
are not enrolled in school.

There are not enough public schools, especially in rural areas. K12 Haiti partners with local privately run schools to provide pay for teachers, and funding for textbook and technology initiatives. We enable excellence and provide fuel for growth by freeing up capital.

Teacher Support

Our Teacher Support program is designed to offset the cost of the largest expense that schools have. By doing so, we impact the surety that teachers will get paid. This in turn impacts morale and the quality of teachers our member schools can attract and retain. These benefits are obvious. What’s not so obvious is that when these schools have salary costs offset or even fully subsidized, discretionary money trickles down into food programs, water, better facilities, more flexible tuition for families in need and even enables ambitious school administrators the ability to grow. Accountability is simplified and administrators are empowered. Teacher support is the core thing K12 Haiti does.

Textbooks

Students seldom have current textbooks, and when they do, are shared by up to 10 students at a time. A basic tenant to teaching any curriculum is having good textbooks available to students and teachers alike. Our textbook program relies largely on the purchase of used books and even accounts for e-book titles when available.  We also allow for an e-library to be developed so that e-books can be lent to students to read away from school. These titles are typically available in French and are read on Kindle E-Ink technology enabled readers. Books are imminently able to be re-used and inventoried easily for accountability.

Technology Initiatives

Students in Haiti fall behind the workforce of tomorrow because of little to no access to basic computer technology and the electricity to power it. As part of K12’s core mission, we seek to provide computers, software, solar charging equipment and internet access to schools who want to have technology initiatives. Members schools are encouraged to develop plans and hire trained technology savvy teachers to help close the substantial gap that exists between Haitian children and the technology enabled future we all face.

Support Technology Programs

6 out of 10 children are not enrolled in school… even more drop out.

This creates long term inequality for both students and parents alike and contributes to the cycle of generational strife for many of the people of Haiti… especially in rural areas.
