Who We Are:
We are an online language learning resource (click here to get started!) created in partnership with some of the most effective Creole educators in the field (including the authors and publishers of Creole Made Easy and the author of the Sweet Coconuts educational blog).
We are a growing network of more than eighteen-hundred Creole language learners.
We are a coordination tool encouraging individuals and organizations to communicate with each other, share domain knowledge, streamline efforts, and help one another do the work they do better.
We are a team that is passionate about the potential that language has to create, build, and sustain relationships.
In an effort to continue the conversation about changing attitudes towards service, the importance of language, and how to better build relationships with our friends in Haiti, we created the HaitiHub Blog. New posts go up on Thursdays, we hope you’ll join us!
HaitiHub started in 2009 as a 1-person side project based out of Los Angeles teaching real-time Creole conversation classes to anyone who was interested. In February 2011, HaitiHub relocated to Durham, North Carolina and went from part-time side project to full-time mission.
Our short term goal is to teach the Haitian Creole language to volunteers, development staff, and U.S.-based professionals who work with Haitian populations. We do this by providing the highest quality learning resources available anywhere.
Our long term goal is to leverage the power of language to affect a larger shift in the way humanitarian aid is done in Haiti.
