A couple of months ago, a group of bold young men mustered up the courage to ask Joe if Upstream would consider sponsoring them to go to vocational school. It’s an opportunity that most men in Cite´ Soleil, Haiti could never dream of. These men are fighting for survival for themselves and their families in ways that most of us will never scratch the surface of understanding.
Not only do they want to provide for their families, they also want to be the change in their own community. Because of Upstream they were able to start Auto Mechanic School a few weeks ago. It’s a year and a half long program that will give them a trade that they can use the rest of their lives. These men are so grateful for the chance to learn and grow. They will be able to use their skills to help the people around them & generate an income to provide for their loved ones.
The impact on their lives because of someone believing in them & giving them the gift of an education will hopefully pass down for generations to come.
