With scant access to affordable education, many young people in Haiti have few options to break the cycle of extreme poverty. But 1,700 miles away at Keene State College, a group of students had a hand in a project that could change that in one region.
Six students recently finished working with two nonprofit organizations to develop preliminary designs for a vocational school in the Caribbean country. Those building plans will be used as a foundation to raise money to build the school.
