T.E.N Global is committed to co-creating academic and social emotional literacy in the Haitian community both at home and abroad. In order to support the flourishing of the Haitian community, T.E.N. Global partners with education and mental health experts work together to develop and create the Lakou Projects.
Our second major initiative is Jeni Awareness for Self Development and Empowerment Lakou which has three central support groups. The concept of Jeni within the Haitian community is the recognition of the intrinsic spiritual gifts that people are blessed with at birth. At T.E.N. Global we believe that everyone is born for a purpose and some may need a committed support network to be able to develop, sustain and use these gifts to rebuild and sustain a healthy and productive life.
The third facet of the T.E.N. Global is the Roses & Concrete: Operationalizing Socio-Cultural Praxis Project. With the visual idea that roses can grow out of concrete as there is fertile ground underneath the rose grows through a crack in the the concrete. This metaphor reveals that the perceived concrete blocks that we experience only masks the foundation where we can grow.
