What We Do

Apparent Project staff works alongside the Haitian company that employs our artisans.

We help with distribution and sales of handmade product created from discarded materials such as cereal boxes and oil drums. These items are sent to the US, where they are sold through parties and fundraisers, thus providing the artisans with steady employment and a living wage. We also provide training in basic job skills and offer safe environment for infants & toddlers at risk.

Our Current Programs

AP Infant & Toddler Childcare:

Infant & Toddler Childcare
The day care helps give artisans the ability to keep their families together by providing a safe place for their infants and toddlers while they work. Nannies have been trained in CPR and other skills. These “at-risk” children have their first opportunity to begin learning things many of us take for granted. Our hope is that these children not only receive the care & nurture needed while in the Childcare, but also that they receive education as they grow up. With parents who are employed… the children have the opportunity.

AP Preschool & Early Education:

Preschool
The AP Preschool & Early Education program is designed to give our artisans’ children an opportunity for quality education. They also receive afterschool childcare while their parents are still at work. Our well-qualified teachers, along with teacher assistants, are providing education consistent with Haitian educational requirements. This includes French & Creole literacy with some exposure to English even at the 3 & 4-year-old level. Motor skill development, problem solving skills and character development will enable them to succeed & prosper as they mature. We are adding a 5-year-old Kindergarten this year and hope to add a grade each year through at least 6th grade. With the help of our supporters, we have the opportunity to raise up future leaders for the next generation in Haiti.

Apparent Project Institute:

AP Institute
Interested workers can increase opportunities for employment by learning English and computer skills. These opportunities are rare in this country. Most of our artisans have had very little education. Some couldn’t write their name. Some were privileged to finish 6th grade! Only a few have been able to study at a higher level. But, they are motivated! They have learned how to make beads, put together jewelry, produce ceramic pottery and so much more. And, now we can offer basic Computer & English skills which can provide advancement in their current jobs and could lead to other employment in the future.
