STEM ACCESS FOR GIRLS IN HAITI

The majority of Haitians lack access to quality education-–a prerequisite for sustained social and economic development (USIAD, 2020). Approximately 50% of the children in Haiti have never attended school. According to the Population Action International “ Haiti has the youngest age structure in the Caribbean; almost 70 percent of Haiti’s people are under age 30. While young people represent an important asset for any country, they need opportunities in order to prosper. Haiti’s demographic reality has and will have a profound impact on development in the country.”Therefore, it is important to provide the future generation with the skills and confidence to effectively tackle the challenges they may face. Our goals is to implement STEM Access For Girls-Youth Enrichment Development Program in and near Port-au-Prince and Mirebalais, Haiti first and then expand to other departments of Haiti as we find area-specific advocates.

Our goals is to implement STEM Access for Girls-Youth Enrichment Development Program in the 10 departments of Haiti . The program provides young ladies with resources to engage in hands-on training, and mentoring to help them develop the 21st Century Skills, a strong STEM identity, self-confidence, and eventually the ability to contribute to Haiti’s development and technological contributions to the world.
