On January 12th, 2010 Haiti was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. Considered one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, Haiti’s infrastructure remains in a fragile state. On this day, WUSC mourns the lives lost and we reaffirm our commitment to help strengthen and rebuild the country.
Strengthening Local Organizations
For years WUSC has worked with local partner organizations in Haiti and in April 2010, we launched the second phase of the Volunteer Cooperation Program (PCV). The program focuses on strengthening Haitian organizations, both Government and non-governmental. Working with its Haitian and Canadian partners, the program focuses on strengthening local capacity and coordination between stakeholders so they can offer quality services to men, women and children while ensuring women participate in all program activities.
Volunteer in Haiti
WUSC along with its partners are looking for volunteers with expertise and skill to help rebuild and improve access to education and skills training while promoting good governance in the country. Find out how you can volunteer.
