Wentworth IT is training for a stonger Haitian construction supply chain

A Boston school sends 42 trained construction managers back to Haiti

Wentworth Institute of Technology is just finishing their second year of support for the Haiti reconstruction effort. They are teaching construction skills to a select group of Haitian’s in a program called Train the Trainers.

These students are each well-educated and competent to take what they have gleaned in Boston back to Haiti and make a difference in the quality of their countries construction practices.

Russell F. Pinizzotto, senior Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Provost of Wentworth suggests that this training should produce “concrete” results in real projects back in Haiti.

We support the idea that training is a major contributor to a vibrant construction supply chain and offer our assistance to make this effort a success.

“Give a man a fish and he is fed for a day; but teach a man to fish and he feeds is family for a lifetime”

In this next video, one of the graduates speaks of how they have been taught to “fish” in their training, and with this instruction 42 graduates will help teach their country how to fish.

There are so many things that are needed to build back a better Haiti. This college has taken up the challenge to make a difference. What expertise can you bring to the effort?
