In its ninth (9th) consecutive year,
Empowering Through Education (ETE) Camp
seeks to prepare Hinche, Haiti’s most vulnerable youth (over 150 participants) to become future community leaders for social change by strengthening their academic skills, increasing self-confidence, and actively building community and parental support.
The project achieves its aim by:
(1) strengthening their academic skills via critical classes like Math, Literacy, Engineering and Leadership Building,
(2) increasing self-confidence by promoting teamwork and leadership, and
(3) actively building community and parental support by connecting them with respected community leaders like their mayor and hosting community-wide events that allow parents to witness the development and great potential of their children through education; in addition to hosting an afternoon adult English learners class.
