More than 60 young people and adults have completed a full year of computer education at the Yours Humanly Haiti Computer School, which was funded and built by Yours Humanly in 2021 to bring access to computer science instruction and technology to hundreds of underprivileged children and adults in the town of Hinche. The computer school serves children ages 10 and above who attend the Haiti Computer School after their normal school day to study computer science. Additionally, the Yours Humanly Haiti Computer School offers evening instruction for older youth and adults in the community who take classes to build their skill sets for employment opportunities elsewhere.
