Ernso Jean-Louis, executive director of Haitian Partners for Christian Development, recently had the opportunity to share at Palais de L’Art, to a group of over 150 young women the vision HPCD has for the country of Haiti. Ernso Jean-Louis was accompanied by HPCD’s administrative intern, Immaculene Carmelo and HPCD’s Comunication’s Director, Christina Jean- Louis.
These young women were recently lodged in displacement camps which were created shortly after the earthquake. World Vision has partnered with the members of this displacment camp to equip them with skills which will not only reinforce their employablity in the long run but an added work trade to ensure sustainability within these families.
Most of these women were trained in industrial couture through out a semester and recently graduated from their training. This half day conference was commited to recognizing their accomplishment, encouraging their efforts and presenting possibilities for the future. This is where Ernso Jean-Louis came in. HPCD not only has their successful incubation program which may enable some of these women to launch small business within the sect , HPCD partners with the community to place tradesman in apprentice ships and jobs .
Mr. Jean-Louis not only encouraged these women in their trade, it affirmed the vision of HPCD to see a Haiti filled with jobs.
