"As a little girl I watched my grandparents devote their entire lives to community projects in the Central Plateau. They taught me that in life you have to work hard, go to school and be humble. Therefore it was a natural path for me to continue their work in education."

Victoria Baillergeau
External Coordinator

"Education is the only force in the world that can change society."

Abel Maurius
Outreach Coordinator

“If you aren’t educated you don’t have a secure future. I work in education to help the system and motivate more people to receive a better education.”

John Oberde
Stock-keeper

“I went to school in Chapoteau, part of Zanmi Education which is now Summits. They sponsored my education. It is for that reason that I wanted to work with Summits to give that opportunity to others so that they may benefit as I have.”

 "With an education you're given access to opportunity and the ability to defy class. It was one of the first things I saw when producing stories here in Haiti.

Jessica Obert
Creative Producer

“A child of the community of Kay Epin, I went school at one of the first schools Zanmi Education / Summits founded. One remarkable thing that happened to me was that when I was about to take the state exam to test out of 6th grade they couldn’t find my registration. The exam was in Thomonde and so I wasn’t able to take the exam. I had to repeat the 6th grade because of it.

This is why I wanted to work in education to fix the system and make sure that doesn’t happen to other children.”

David Vilma
Maintenance Manager

 “I served as a City Year Boston corps member in 2009. As a corps member, I was a mentor, tutor, and role model to students in an inner-city Boston Public School. I was able to experience first-hand the disparities in education based on class, race, and zip-code. I committed to being part of the solution to raise the bar for education worldwide and believe that education is part of health equity.”

"My motivation to work everyday in education hides within many stories. But the main reason is how education has opened many doors in my life."

Alfredo Adne Paul
Comm. / Data Manager

“Without education my life couldn’t change for the better. Without people who think critically education does not have the chance to transform society. My life changed because I found a good education.”

Branel Joseph
Chief of Finance

As a child of the Central Plateau I chose to work in education because I was witness to how many people don't know how to read here. I hope that with my presence here I can help change that, and with more educated, there is hope for less violence, and financial insecurity.

Jean-Denis Andre
Human Resources

"I am from Lascahobas, a community with several Summits schools. I decided to work for Summits so that students could see that what they dream is possible. I was born in a rural community and was awarded for my academic achievement by being able to go to university in the U.S. I hope I can be an example for Summits students.

Amandine Stolfi
Education Projects Manager

“I love to learn and always wanted to leave my mark in the community I’m working in. The happiest day for me is Friday when I am with the children in morning circle. Working to help the quality of education in my country is the biggest goal of mine."

Toussaint Durame
School Supervisor

“I was passionate about philosophy when I was in school. Since then I wanted to be a teacher. After 2012 I decided to marry education with development to help transform schools in the Central Plateau. I had originally wanted to be a university professor but realized quickly that I would do the most good helping children in primary school. I was the principal of the Summits school in Delagon, and now I’m supervisor."

Anne Lude Senat

"I often find myself reflecting on the phrase, 'seule l'education qui peut élever l'homme à la dignité de son etre,' which translates to mean, ‘only education can bring dignity.’

Like a Haitian patriot, this phrase inspires me and motivates me to work in education in order to help train and educate others so that they can live a dignified life.

Renel Ulysse
Library Facilitator

“When I was 2 years old my father put me in an orphanage. It was there that I went to school. After I left the orphanage I went to high school and then university. And now when I Iook back on everything that I’ve been through I feel the necessity to share with others, like those children in the orphanage, what I've received from education."

Raynold Romain
School Supervisor

“When I was in the third grade I still didn’t know how to read. My teacher at that time took more time with me so that I could. After that I wanted to help other students learn how to read.”
