Meet the team of SIM17!
We are SIM17 students at the University of St.Gallen. Our team is excited to lead Rise Haiti organisation. We firmly believe that education is a key component of a thriving society and a way to make a positive & sustainable impact. Thus our mission is to improve the educational conditions for the Haitian children and in this way contribute to the development of the local community and whole Haiti in the long term.
RiseHaiti has been founded in 2012. Since then, the previous cohorts have built a hand-washing facility to improve hygiene standards, a kitchen to provide warm meals, a computer lab with an IT infrastructure, and three classrooms that provided the access to education to more than 100 Haitian children. We, the SIM17 team, will continue the legacy and will address the most pressing needs of the Haitian children. We will keep you updated about our progress here and on our social media channels.
