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. 50% of the population is younger that 20 years old.
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 teacher training, sewing, computer literacy, computer repair, cosmetology, and auto repair.
