What is the Bridge to Haiti Program?

The Bridge to Haiti Project is a collaboration between the Bridging the Digital Divide Program and a SUNY Broome Course, “Health for Haiti”. ​Through this collaboration, Bridge to Haiti is creating solar powered computer labs in Haiti and teaching computer literacy to over 200 children.

In addition to providing children and young adults with the opportunity to acquire new skills, w​e ​hope​ to establish a virtual “Bridge to Haiti” that will allow the SUNY Broome community to communicate with the people of Haiti. There are many opportunities for sharing knowledge and learning from each other.

Dr. Jen Musa from SUNY Broome and Esterling Accime, computer literacy instructor in Cite Soleil, Haiti, discuss the Bridge to Haiti Project.
