Announcing: our first local staff member!
We are so, so, SO excited to announce that we have hired our first local staff member in Haiti! Since we started Haiti Scholarships, we have relied heavily on Jean Kendy who tirelessly volunteered his time to help us with everything we needed to get done on the ground, as well as other volunteers like Onel and Lamarre, who have stepped up when needed. We are incredibly thankful for all of their hard work, and are excited for them to work in conjunction with our new staff member: Berlyne Bien-Aime!
Berlyne was a translator for All Hands Volunteers, so most of our board members have worked closely with her in the past. Those of you that know her can attest to the fact that there is always a smile on her face, and her laughter is infectious! She also works with GOALS Haiti, and her passion and dedication to her work is unquestionable. We are so excited to have her on board, and we're even more excited about what this means for our organization and our students.
This has been made possible because of donors like YOU, and we are currently looking for personal or corporate donors to ensure that we can keep Berlyne on our staff, without affecting our scholarships. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're as excited as we are to have Berlyne on our staff, head over to our Facebook page and congratulate her on the new position!
Welcome aboard, Berlyne!
