A New School Partnership

Principal Philistin Chrisnel with IIT Haiti TeamIIT Haiti is proud to announce another new partnership with a local school near Simon, in the town of Bambou. Principal Philistin Chrisnel gave the IIT Haiti team a tour of his school in Bambou of over 100 students. Like most elementary schools in Haiti,
the classrooms are small and most have only wooden benches and older chalkboards with no electricity. The older students will begin to take computer classes at IIT Haiti in Simon. For most of them, this will be the first time they have every used a computer before. Many of the older students attended an Internet Safety class, taught by IIT Haiti team member, Tim Kaufmann.Bambou school children “These students’ will suddenly find the world of technology open to them. That includes the many pitfalls and dangers most of us know how to avoid. We need to help them understand the good and bad that can come with understanding and using technology.”
