HURRICANE MATTHEW UPDATE
First and foremost, we want to let you know that our students at EIM are fine as Port-au-Prince was spared the brunt of the storm. That said, the southern coast of the country was badly hit and many of our students’ families and friends were affected. EIM is actively working with partners on the ground to offer our support in terms of finances and supplies. For those wishing to donate, we strongly recommend you give to local, grassroots organization already doing great work Haiti. To help streamline the process, EIM is accepting tax-deductible donations through our site. Go to our DONATE tab, mark your donation as “Matthew” and we’ll then distribute these funds to various partner organizations that we trust on the front lines of the relief effort such as Haiti Communitere, MIMSI International, and others. Thanks.
You must speak English. We do too. We are English in Mind Institute (EIM) — a non-profit, adult English program in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and we love our school. Although started by an NGO (International Disaster Volunteers) in the aftermath of the earthquake, we are now a Haitian led, Haitian taught, and Haitian administered operation. We offer biweekly classes to over 200 students and follow a Cambridge University English syllabus complete with internationally recognized exams. Along with our lower levels, we are one of the only institutes in Haiti to offer two advanced levels and we also sponsor our graduates to take the TOEFL exam.
