The Vision Haiti Foundation was created by Haitian/American cousins after the January 12th 2010 earthquake. Their plan to teach technical skills to both male and female Haitians will enable graduates to obtain better paying jobs during the re-construction of their country. The plan has evolved to include eight different cities with the construction of HaitiTech campuses as well as establishing adjacent villages that will be built by students then made available to graduates or the local communities as individual homes. In the time it took to obtain a US 501(c)3, they put together a top group of volunteers and board members as well as a secure warehouse in Port-au-Prince and alliances with existing schools.
