AN EMPOWERING CODING SCHOOL

We are  a Socially Driven coding school in Haiti, that intends to empower disadvantaged communities by bringing education and employment oppotunities to the youth in inner cities who can later use that knowledge to "Code" a better Haiti.

Solution for Students

Greatness and inteliggence are equally distrubuted around the world, but opportunities are not. This is why we want to provide an entirely FREE EDUCATION to the brightest students in inner cities of Haiti. We will then ensure employment opportunities for each one of those students in growing startups around the world. 

Problems We Solve

We pride ourselves that our business model is socially driven, and that we are working towards building a more equal world. Our mission is also deeply rooted in a passion for helping our native country Haiti. Our business model connects the dots to create a win-win situation across the board. Companies around the world need global talents, Haitian youth is looking for education and employment opportunities, and the Haitian economy is desperately in need of an increase of GDP via production and export (in this case, export of our knowledge and services). We believe that we can propel growth in the technology sector in Haiti to create jobs, and faciliate technology to become an impactul factor of economic development

Our Story

Despite being awarded several scholarships that could cover his cost of Education, Esdras Malbranche always felt a sense of guilt, as most of his former classmates in Haiti were not as lucky as him. Those classmates did not have a chance to pursue secondary education, and Esdras' Mother, as a Haitian educator for more than 30 years, knows too well how this scenario is played for every promotion of students she graduates. This is why they've cofounded PIT
