MEET NEDGINE Paul, the 29-year-old Harvard graduate making education accessible for the poorest communities in Haiti.
Forty-three percent of the Haitian population is under the age of 15. That’s why Haitian-born Nedgine Paul has created a company that works to raise the education outcomes in disadvantaged areas of the country by recruiting and training local teachers for existing schools.
The Haitian-born entrepreneur is the co-founder and CEO of Anseye Pou Ayiti, a movement of allies who believe that equal educational opportunity will transform Haiti and that high-quality teacher leaders will drive the quality transformation for schools.
Launched in 2014, Anseye Pou Ayiti is recruiting and training the next generation of leaders for education reform.
Rooted in an appreciation of Haitian culture, customs, and community, they are raising education outcomes in underserved areas by promoting teacher excellence and student success.
Anseye Pou Ayiti is also accelerating teachers’ impact in Haiti by fostering a network of fellowship alumni who play diverse roles across Haitian society as lifelong advocates of education equity.
Nedgine, who has a bachelor’s degree from Yale College and a master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, was selected for the Forbes’ list of “30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs”, has led community service and youth development programs within Haitian diaspora communities.
