Who we are:

Better Futures International is an accredited 501-C charity organization.
501(c) (3) Not-for-profit EIN #43-1971411 NYS Charity 20-55-05

Better Future fundraises in the US and serves orphaned children in Haiti. We DO NOT arrange adoptions. We have a small family orphans home in Cyvadier Haiti, near Jacmel. We also provide educational events for neighborhood children at our small ̢���library̢���� workspace. We assure that children in our program receive an education, health care, proper nutrition, and a peaceful and loving home. Beginning this summer we hope to enhance the academic tutoring by expanding the summer school learning to include:
̢���� English Languages and Grammar
̢���� Critical Thinking (ESSENTIAL in an educational system based on memorization)
̢���� Health and Hygiene
̢���� Sports, Arts, Dance and other Extracurricular Activities
̢���� Computer learning
Tell us about you:

Your cover letter should explain why you are drawn to Better Future for an ESL internship, and what experience you hope to gain. Be clear about your time available to come to Cyvadier to work. Please include information about your ESL training, teaching experience, and reference any customized lesson plans that you have designed or used. Any teaching that includes games, singing songs, and learning through play is of particular interest.


The children speak Kreol and understand French. They have no experience learning English. You will need to bring all the handouts and books you will need to teach English as a second language.

In addition, we know the children are old enough to use digital self learning devices like ipod programs to learn vocabulary words, pronunciation, and reading in English. You will need to be familiar with these tools, and we have some ipods ready to go and we are looking for more. You can make recommendations about the programs that we should load onto these devices to support your teaching program.

Hannah Chernik is a young woman who raised funds for BFI and went to Haiti to spend time with the kids and to report on the children̢��‰�s lives. You will learn a great deal about the children from reading her extensive notes.
