“Kreye Chemin la vi Miyo – Creating Pathways for a Better Life”

In April 2009, Partners In Development (PID) and Jou Nouvo began to plan out to form a partnership to respond to the needs of the poor in Bon-Repos. PID/Jou Nouvo is working with the community to provide access to medical care, loans for small businesses, literacy programs for adults, and sponsorship programs for children so they may have the opportunity to attend school.

Jou Nouvo brings together supporters from the United States and experienced community leaders from Haiti to exchange ideas and work together in order to provide a venue and staff to teach fundamental literacy skills to adults. The program is accessible to those who, for the first time, want to learn to read and write in Creole, as well as those who wish to continue to improve their literacy skills. Additionally, the program will provide basic instruction to strengthen family health as well as guidance in economic development and stability supplemented with a small loan.

For information about how you can help by volunteering with Jou Nouvo, please see here. And to learn more about Jou Nouvo, please download our brochure!

A special thank you to all of our volunteers, both past and present,
and even more so, all past and current donors who supporting Jou Nouvo!
