Community English Courses

Haiti’s proximity to the United States and English’s growing prominence in global markets is making the English language an attractive quality to prospective employers in Haiti. After many in the Croix-des-Bouquets area displayed interest in learning English, HAC started three English courses in 2010: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

The classes are taught by two locals who went through the courses themselves and are supplemented with the help of English speaking volunteers that visit.

Literacy Courses

Illiteracy rates in Haiti are currently hovering 70%. This not only limits employment opportunities, but also makes the population vulnerable. For example, consumers in the marketplace can easily be taken advantage of when they are unable to do to simple arithmetic. HAC is combating this statistic by offering literacy courses to adults in Croix-des-Bouquets.
