This hands-on training bridges the gap between formal and academic training in the classroom as it focuses on skill building for the working world. Vocational training creates opportunities for employment and helps eliminate the struggles that exist because of unemployment in Haitian communities.

Artisans and skilled workers in the community teach students trades such as plumbing, ceramic tiling, sewing, floral arts, as well as leather and canvas products. Classes are offered each afternoon for secondary school students.

With only 1% of Haitian students attending university there is a great need for skill training to ensure opportunities for young people to secure employment and provide for their families.

*The monthly cost to provide funding for 5 vocations is $600.


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.
