Our passion is to equip nonprofit schools and training centers that operate in Haiti with high quality, durable, and performant equipment. We have found that one of the best ways to accomplish this is through business partnerships. IT departments in larger organizations tend to have consistent processes for refreshing employee equipment, leading to stocks of sometimes gently used, business grade laptops and equipment.

Teacher Training Program
Computer science is for everyone!
Computer science in the classroom teaches logic, problem solving, and creativity. We equip and train local educators to bring computer science curriculum to their classrooms in a fun and engaging way.
CS0 - Intro to Computer Science
Online curriculum that's intuitive, interactive, and fun.
Aprann's curriculum of choice is an online, graphics based set of courses from Carnegie Mellon University. The courses teach fundamentals of computer science and programming using the Python programming language, along with interactive graphics and creative exercises. We start with CS0, which is an introductory level course, geared towards students with basic computer knowledge and minimal math background.
Equipping to Thrive
Providing training, resources, and ongoing support
Aprann leads local teachers through an online training program. Teachers first partipate as students by going through the course, then have opportunities to observe and assist teaching in future classes. Eventually, they will take the material to their own classrooms, educating and inspiring the next generation. Aprann provides ongoing support and training along the way.
Sustainability and cultural sensitivity are key
We whole heartedly believe that computer science education is for everyone. We also believe that we exist to play a supporting role, and that the best people to educate in Haitian schools are Haitian teachers. For that reason, our desire is to work in the background, providing help where needed, but leaving space for teachers to deliver in the most effective way.
We work with partner nonprofits to provide hardware such as laptops and networking equipment at no cost or substantially reduced cost.
Through vendor relationships we secure discounted software licensing for nonprofits for products such as productivity and educational software.
Aprann provides consulting expertise for a wide range of technology needs, specifically in the context of developing areas needing creative solutions that support limited infrastructure
Onsite and remote programs with a strong focus on a train-the-trainer approach, empowering and enabling local staff with the skills needed to teach others in their schools and organizations.
