"I'm doing volunteer work at MAII in the summer/fall of 2017, and it has been a wonderful experience. The guys over there are extremely nice and helpful. Reverend Lucien, Wladimir, and other folks were very helpful and the knowledge that I got volunteering here will be instrumental in my getting a job. I gained knowledge and improved my time management during the time I stayed here.
The organization is true to its goals of helping underprivileged children (including in Haiti) obtain an education. The office is well organized and the fellow volunteers are very helpful. I recommend volunteering at this organization to learn people skills and be helpful to needy. I would recommend anyone I know to volunteer if they have time. If I ever get an opportunity again, I would certainly spend some time with this wonderful organization."
"I am a Web Developer and IT person who has been working with The MAII since July '17. My main responsibilities have been to help grow and improve the organization's main website while working alongside a team of talented web developers/designers. I am grateful to be part of this organization and to be supporting a great cause."
"I came to the US a few months back and found the privilege to work for MAII. I am happy that I am the part of the organization who is helping the people who really need help, especially focusing on the education for the children. I am a part of the web development team and try to contribute to the organization with my web development skills, I can say coming to MAII for work I feel I am giving back to my country and my family."
"I am a software developer and shifted to US last year. I started my volunteer work at MAII in May 2017 as an Assistant Manager. My responsibilities are to take care of the Child Sponsorship Program, help in for interviews, management for events and daily tasks for the all the volunteers. It's great working with the organization as Reverend Lucien and all the fellow volunteers are really friendly and helpful. I am glad I got this opportunity as I am gaining experience here and as well able to work for a good cause, help children, and families in need."
" I recently graduated with a computational physics degree from Gordon College, Wenham, MA, with a strong background in Python and Git. Being from China, I am bilingual (in English and Chinese). I like programming, boxing, good food, and Nintendo games. I am excited to volunteer for MAII because it is a good place for me to use my skills for good and practice my faith at the same time."
"Nicolson Ariste was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and has worked with MAII since he was 10 years old. He is 17 years old now. He likes helping and feels that MAII is a great opportunity to gain professional real-life experience and resume-building skills. Growing up as a kid he felt there were challenges that the area in Haiti presented.
Paying for private school was difficult for his family and meals came only once or twice a day. The food was already prepared so he wasn’t able to eat his favorite meals all the time. Now that he has a chance to help through MAII he would like to do all he can for other children that had a similar situation.
Nicolson feels there was a struggle to find stable school systems. In Haiti, it is common for kids to be sent back home from school for lack of payment. Nicolson believes education is a great thing and to prevent being sent home from school himself he has joined MAII as a safety net. He is also active in MAII’s affiliated All Nations Grace Tabernacle Church. He encourages kids to get involved in similar programs if they have time. Helping others makes him feel proud and good about himself at the end of the day."
I am a recent college graduate from Wilmington, Delaware. I aspire to be a software developer and am volunteering with the MAII website. Outside of computer science, I am interested in basketball, hiking, and photography.
