Only 6 out of every 1,000 teachers have a diploma or certificate in their field.  Nearly 25% have not attended secondary school. This means more than half of the teachers lack adequate teacher training or have had no training at all.

We value our teachers and want to offer them support so they can create a positive learning environment for each student. Beginning with 9 teachers in 2019, we will be providing funding for the 3-year professional teaching designation. Our teachers are thrilled to have the opportunity to learn how to be better teachers. Maccia, a school director says, "Teachers are not valued very much in Haiti. We make very little money and have little respect in the community. I feel so honoured that you are blessing us with the gift of knowledge so that we can offer our students a good quality education. Thank you!"

*The annual cost for a teacher to attend the Ministry of Education Certification Course is $300.

  The full certification is a 3-year commitment totalling $900. 


PiFò is a Haitian Créole word meaning, "stronger".

Since 2011 we have been working alongside a team of Haitians on the island of La Gonâve in an effort to empower future generations through education and development programs.
