SSEHV Training Programme in Haiti

Since 2010, SSIO volunteers have conducted SSEHV activities and training programmes in Haiti to help the needy and the destitute. In August 2017, 45 teachers and students participated in a five-day SSEHV programme in the capital city, Port-au-Prince. A two-day introductory course was followed by three additional days of in-depth study. An introductory course was also conducted in St. Marc, a town north of Port-au-Prince, about two hours away by road, with 27 teachers and students participating. Both sessions included presentations, written assignments, and evaluations. The well-received training generated enthusiasm, understanding, and a determination to practise human values. Due to significant interest, a Human Values Committee has been formed to promote SSEHV in Haiti and prepare future training programmes and events.
