COHP's mission is to provide learning opportunities to children in Haiti with limited or no access to formal education, through the collective support and leadership of international schools, international institutions, and individuals worldwide. Our goal is to nurture each child's intellectual, ethical, social and physical growth, that each may become a positive, contributing member of the Haitian community.
In the past five decades the severe shortage of skilled teachers has lead to extremely high illiteracy rates for Haiti, leading to an eventual unqualified workforce and leadership. COHP is looking to change the conversation with educated and analytical citizens who question and change the status quo.

"I am in 4th grade. When I grow up I want to become a pilot. I am told that not too many women fly commercial airlines. I want to be one of the exceptions. If I have money I will open a training center to teach people how to fly airplanes. I like it because at school in science my teacher explained what makes something fly and I do not understand it all but she promised to continue the lesson using the computer to show us".
