Free computer technology classes are opening doors for young Haitian women in the Dominican Republic thanks to a grant from United Methodist Women.

A video created by photojournalist Niles Sprague details how ODEMIHF’s IT program is changing the lives of young immigrant Haitian women living in the Dominican Republic. Sprague is a contributor to United Methodist Women’s response magazine. He traveled to the Dominican Republic to visit and report on the successes of United Methodist Women supported institutions in the area.

Sprague said the young immigrants have a lot to gain learning computer technology.

Julie Point du Jour, a 15-year-old student in the computer technology class, said she is feeling more confident about her future.

“I feel good coming to this class. I’ve learned a lot of new ways to use the computer,” Point du Jour said. “I keep learning. I keep growing. I want to finish my studies in primary, secondary. Then I want to go to college”
