Helping those who help others...

Welcome to HHP Institute Summer ESL Program

Happy Haitian Productions Institute (HHP Institute) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable English classes to Haitian students. Fluency in English will increase career and educational opportunities for the young people of our community. Because there is no government funding for education, HHPI has depended upon the support of generous donors to keep the doors open.

Summer Program

HHP Institute Summer ESL Program

In the United States, summer vacation is a break from the hard work of academic endeavors. In Haiti during the summer, school work becomes labor in the fields. Instead of fun time, young people work in the vegetable gardens with their families because there are no organized activities available.

Building on the success achieved during the academic year, HHPI is planning to offer a Summer Program to benefit the students (ages 8-18) from Hinche and the surrounding area (Bassin-Zim, Layaye, Thomonde).We plan to offer language learning, physical activities, and one meal because we understand that many of the children do not have enough to eat at home.

For those who cannot pay, we are seeking sponsors to help purchase sport shoes, tee shirts, school supplies and bags to outfit the expected 200 participants in our program.
