ABOUT Rise Haiti
Year after year, a group of students from the Strategy and International Management (SIM) program at the University of St. Gallen, take on the drivewheel to help achieve Rise Haiti's vision:
We want to create a future in which all Haitian children have access to high-quality education, which enables them to attain financial security and empower their communities.
During the year 2019-2020, the team conducted a 3 fold initiative at St. Ignace de Loyola School, Bedou, Haiti:
3 classrooms were constructed to provide the infrastructure needed for better education.
A week-long informatics workshop was conducted for the higher grade students to foster their interest in STEM disciplines.
A business workshop was conducted for the administration of the school so that they could capitalise on available commodity sale opportunities and make the school more self-reliant.
The team of the year 2020-2021 (on the left) has already taken over the wheel of the organisation and is actively looking for areas where the biggest impact can be made for the next year.
