The HMP is committed to the long-term development of Haiti and its people, a country plagued with high levels of unemployment, a lack of access to education, and a population whose mean age is 22. Currently over 200 young adults and older adolescents at HMP are in need of job training skills.
In 2012 Haiti Micah Project began to raise funds to build a vocational training facility and outer security wall. A matching grant funded by the Charles Engelhard Foundation and donations from our generous donors raised $110,000. Construction began in November 2014 and used local Haitians to complete the work.
In May 2016, under the leadership of Director, Jean Paul Almay, the vocational training center (“Centre d’Encadrement de Pédagogique et de Formation Continue”) opened. The first programs offered are in sewing, computer literacy, computer repair, and cosmetology.
