Partners in Progress
The Center has partnered with, or are actively partnering/cooperating with a host of international development projects and corporations. Large and small, they include (in alphabetical order): École de la Rédemption (Léogâne), Haiti Housing Collaborative, Haitian/American Disaster Relief Committee, Hôpital Albert Schweitzer (Deschapelle), Hôpital Ste. Croix (Léogâne), International YMCA, International Youth Hostel, Japanese Artists Association of New York, myFC (Sweden), Rotary International, Skype, and Teach The World On-Line.
The Center pledges to support the efforts of Haiti’s own badly damaged university institutions. Of the 32 major universities surveyed in a recent study (INURED), 28 were completely destroyed and the other four seriously damaged. Many Haitian universities will likely never be rebuilt. The solution for building Haitian competence must be built up from the ground and on site in Haiti. The International University Center of Haiti will do all that it can to support these efforts.
