After the devastating earthquake had hit Haiti in 2010, many people from english speaking countries have been traveling to Haiti to bring their support in the following domains: Mobile Clinic, Constructions, Summer Camps, arts and crafts, leadership training, and so on.
In order to carry out their tasks effectively, they desperately needed translators to help them communicate to the people they have come to serve. Since each field has its own specific jargon, it made the work somewhat difficult for the majorrity of translators to do because:
- First of all, the majority of translators probably didn't master the jargon.
- Secondly, they had some pronunciation issues.
- Finally, they weren't trained to translate.
Nowadays, many people are still traveling to Haiti to help, and they always need translators - to be precise, efective translators because mistranslations can cause regrettable damages especially when translating for professionals in the medical field.
In the purpose of solving the language profisciency issue, New System Languages Academy was created with the mission to provide better language teaching classes as well as translation and interpreting training. However, since its creation in 2010, right after the erthquake, it has never had a comfortable local, which has discouraged people to come and learn English and other languages there although we always did our best to satisfy the few students we've had, beyond expectations.
Being able to speak English opens doors to job opportunities in Haiti, and New System would like to prepare people to seize those eventual opprtunities whenever the come up. Therefore, we're currently looking for donations to make some important innovations such as:
- Restoring the classrooms that are being use for the lessons.
- Buying new materials such as: Tables, chairs, a printer, boards and some more textbooks to set up a mini library.
A comfortable classroom will certainly facilitate the learning process and New System can become one of the best languages school in town.
Please, consider making a donation today. This way, you may certainly contribute to many people's success because after all inovations have taken place, New System will be able to serve more people, and hire from three to five people.
We'd appreciate it if we would be able to afford the beginning of the implementation of those innovations in 45 days from now.
