A Haitian Creole proverb, “Men anpil, chay pa lou,” translates to “Many hands make light work.” That is the spirit of MIT-Ayiti.net.
MIT-Ayiti.net is a digital platform of MIT-Haiti developed by professors Michel DeGraff and Haynes Miller, with support from MIT J-WEL [Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab] and MIT Open Learning, that freely shares high-quality learning materials in the Kreyòl language. The platform engages a broad range of volunteer educators in Haiti and elsewhere as co-creators, and is a model of self-empowerment for Haitian teachers who, too often, lack educational resources in their native language. This new music video introducing the MIT-Ayiti platform was developed in partnership with Haitian composer, rapper, and musician Roosevelt Saillant, better known as B.I.C. Tizon Dife.
