Ann Prepare Lavni, Inc. (APL) is a non-profit organization, which seeks to improve the economy and lives of those in Anse-a-Pitres and Banane, Haiti with a particular emphasis in education. Haiti's education system is hindered by little financial support, with high repetition and dropout rates and low enrollment rates plaguing the education of young Haitian children. APL cultivates academic excellence through immersive, interdisciplinary education and research in partnership with the community we serve. It works to discover and disseminate knowledge in order to advance education within the community. This is being accomplished by the institution with free, high quality, multilingual education programs for students unable to afford the high costs of private schools. In addition, teachers are being trained in the latest multilingual teaching methods, which will allow for permanent improvement in the region. With enough time and resources, we hope that the schools in Anse-a-Pitres and Banane become a model for additional schools in Haiti.
This organization does not only provide much needed aid to Haiti, but also gives college students firsthand experience in volunteer work, organization, leadership, and curriculum development, as well as promotes educational awareness about Haiti through events, speakers, and workshops. APL is one of the most promising Poverty Alleviation programs and long term human and community developing strategies in Anse-a-Pitres and Banane, Haiti.
In order to reach more children, we need YOUR help! With small donations of school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, pens, erasers, scissors, etc., and every day necessities such as socks, tooth brushes, shampoo, soap, vitamins, etc., you could make a world of a difference to each child. Any donations (new or used) are accepted.
