Our Work

Practical and relational solutions to help students thrive.

Our goal is not only to get students into the classroom but to empower them THRIVE. That’s why we support students all the way from kindergarten through university, and we supplement their education by providing access to technology. Once our students start college, we match them with qualified personal mentors, and we have regular group gatherings where our students and mentors can learn and encourage one another. Thus, we are a community that is creating a support system that puts young people on the path to thriving.

Education

Education is a step toward a brighter future. However, most families struggle to afford to send their kids to school. When a student is supported through Thrive Ansanm, we cover the cost of their tuition and other school costs, so they can stay in school and succeed.

Technology

Digital access creates opportunity and connection. Most Haitian students don’t have a computer or high-speed internet, but at our resource center local students can access laptops, high-speed internet, and consistent electricity, so they won’t get left behind in today’s digital world.

Mentoring

Mentoring develops the leaders of tomorrow. We match university students with personal mentors who who provide guidance from their experience. These mentors are qualified professionals from the local community, so they understand the unique challenges confronting Haitian students.

“All of the support that Thrive Ansanm provides for each of the students, makes us, especially me, perform better. It’s like a hand that, every time you stumble, it’s pushing you forward. So I feel so glad to participate in this program.”

How It Works

1

We collaborate with local leaders to identify young people in need. Every student who is recommended for assistance must go through a formal application process. Our staff meet with the family and get to know the specific goals and needs of the student. After a student is accepted, they join the Thrive Ansanm community, and we post their fundraising profile.

Generous people like you donate to give young people a brighter future. When you support a student financially, we commit to keep that student in school and provide the support they need to succeed. Our staff on the ground work directly with local schools, students, and their families to ensure that each student’s financial needs are met and to track their progress.

3

Students gain access to education, technology, and mentoring. Our students receive financial aid for school, gain access to the Thrive Ansanm resource center, and they are assigned a mentor once they start college. Our goal is to help every student graduate from university or vocational school, so they are prepared to enter the workforce and build a thriving future.
