Jean has been working with CHI for over eight years as an interpreter. He learned English by speaking with volunteers from CHI.
Outside of CHI, Jean runs an orphanage where he takes care of seven children full-time. He also cares for 70 other children in the village by providing them with food or education when he is able. He says he wants to help as many kids as possible, since many children can get “left behind” in Haiti. The organization he runs to care for these children is funded by his salary from CHI, donations from another children’s nonprofit organization, and the money he makes from selling backpacks that he makes by hand.
