The January 12, 2010, magnitude 7.0 earthquake hit near Leogane, 25 miles west of Port-au-Prince, killing over 230,000 and leaving 1 million homeless.
Our long-range vision includes a trade school in Haiti where we teach construction skills. Now we do that on the job site. Photo by Jane Tyska.
With our construction skills, Haitians can find jobs, feed their families, and send their children to school.

Trainees are tested and graded on how well they can build a lead. Is it plumb, level, straight, and with proper mortar joints?
With unemployment approaching 70%, our training is crucial to the Haitian economy – and Haitian families.
