Project Title: Adopt-an-Haitian-Internet-technician-or-facility
Project Description: The project aims to collect money and telecom gear to provide mid-term financial aid to IT technicians that have been affected with their families during the January 12, 2010 earthquake. Money, telecoms gears, time, software, etc will serve to setup technology community centers to support schools, universities, vocational centers that have collapsed.
The Context: On the January 12, 2010, Haiti one of the poorest country in the world is hurt by a 7.3 Earthquake that caused major damage to Port-au-Prince, Jacmel, Leogane and other settlements around. Many notable landmark buildings were significantly damaged or destroyed, including schools, universities, vocational schools even the Port-au-Prince Cathedral, and the main jail. Among those killed are a lot of technicians, students, teachers.
Many countries responded to appeals for humanitarian aid, pledging funds and dispatching rescue and medical teams, engineers and support personnel. Communication systems, air, land, and sea transport facilities, hospitals, schools, universities, and electrical networks had been damaged by the earthquake, which hampered rescue and aid efforts; confusion over who was in charge, air traffic congestion, and problems with prioritization of flights further complicated early relief work. As rescues tailed off, supplies, medical care and sanitation become priorities. Among them we also need to address education on a mid term run. With a lot of destroyed schools and dead teachers e-learning can be a good way to overcome this problem.
Deliverables and criteria for close-out
The projects has 2 majors deliverables:
1. Providing financial support to at least 50 technicians whose houses have been destroyed during the seism. The idea is getting them a job so they don’t have to worry about their family basic needs and keeping them on their workplace
2. Setup mobile IT community centers to provide IT services to schools and universities.
3. Contents production for e-learning
The project boundaries: This project aims to provide technical support to teachers helping them putting their courses online or on DVD and make it available for remote schools or schools whose teachers have been killed during the quake. Data Center in a box will facilitate access to those courses by the students. Project will be conducted in joint venture with the Ministry of Education that will define the priority based on must affected area and teacher availability.
The main risks: The main risk of this project is not having enough funds to address all the needs in supporting the schools in producing online courses because it’s a well-known fact that in schools in Haiti adopted their own curriculum ignoring sometimes the official one. The second concern

People interesting in working in Haiti can send me a skills and availability statement too, but what is needed soonest is a budget that can be applied to existing backfill cash needs passed through the AHTIC.
Thanks and a tip o' the hat to Bill McCall who appraised me of the truncation.
