Our community development program is made up of 3 components: Education, Livelihoods, and our Community Development Campus
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CAMPUS
J/P HRO's Community Development Campus was born out of J/P HRO's emergency response assistance in the Petionville Camp. The Community Development Campus in Delmas 32 is a large facility with indoor and outdoor spaces, a library and computer room, as well as, a demonstration garden and outdoor recreation area. It serves a focal point for community members to meet and learn innovative techniques that they can apply in their own homes and lives. In partnership with local community-based organizations, local youth, and community members, the Community Development Campus remains an inclusive area using a participatory approach to enhance community well-being.
J/P HRO's Education Program established l'Ecole de l'Espoir (The School of Hope) a primary school providing quality education for children of families in the Petionville Club camp. Today, the school has transitioned into the local neighborhood of Delmas 32 and targets students most marginalized in the community because of poverty or other special needs such as learning disabilities and behavioral issues. J/P HRO's education team is also implementing the Delmas 32 Education Revitalization Initiative, a project providing curriculum development support to 125 teachers at 25 schools in the area, enabling them to adopt forward-looking practices that encourages critical thinking among the 6,000 students it reaches.
The J/P HRO's Livelihoods Programs supports the sustainable economic resiliency of families and capacity building of skilled micro-entrepreneurs and economic development where we work. The program reduces and eliminates socioeconomic barriers faced by many vulnerable community members, enhances the overall economic landscape of local communities, and creates greater prosperity for all. Currently initiatives focus on vocational training, creation of community-based savings groups, financial aid business management training, and development of income-generating activities.
J/P HRO’s work in community health is focused on preventative medicine through women’s health, dental care, screening services, and health education.READ MORE
