Scholastic Survey, Program Impact Assessment, and Longitudinal Cohort Study
This report reviews higher education in Haiti with goal of providing a baseline study that can be used for an ongoing evaluation of the Haiti Education and Leadership Program (HELP). We draw on surveys and focus groups conducted during the course of the study to build statistically representative profiles of Haitian university students, to examine the challenges students face in pursuit of a higher education, and to explore how HELP’s assistance program empowers students to overcome those challenges. However, the research does not stop there. The long-term goal of the research is to monitor the impact of the HELP program over time.

Baseline, Value chains, & Notab information network
Before presenting data and analysis, it should be understood that this report examines life in the rural Grand Anse from the perspective of resiliency and adaptation. People living in the region are adapted to 200-plus years of natural and manmade calamities. Natural calamities include droughts, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. Manmade calamities include warfare, political turmoil, corruption, restricted traded, protracted international embargoes, and a State that more often than not has taxed the population through heavy tariffs while making scant to no investment in infrastructure or services. In adapting to such events, farmers in the Grand Anse have clung to zero-risk, zero-investment livelihood strategies.
