Zidor, Age 20

Currently attending the Université Publique du Sud au Cayes (Public University of South Cayes).

“I was always among the best in my class  (at  each  level)  but because of economic difficulties,  I have considered quitting school. Mr.  Wilner  Bernadel,  noticed  my  ability and my  willingness to learn in school nominated me for the PKF scholarships that I  was fortunate to received. Something about PKF that can’t be found anywhere else in my community is that they provide a nurturing and friendly mentorship environment.” – Zidor (20), who received a PKF scholarship for his secondary schooling.

 

“Our learning was through videos and reading assignments on business and communication related concepts for entrepreneurship development. The most impactful learnings are from the challenges we faced in conducting research for our team business idea, working on it and presenting it to a group of community Leaders” – Zidor (20), who was very happy to have been selected for the PKF Entrepreneurship training/Internship program for the second consecutive year.

Wilkins, Age 20

We used the lessons learned from the training videos to develop our business, marketing approach and tactics to present our business idea to investors.” – Wilkins Lafrance (20), who has participated in a number of PKF events benefits throughout the year before starting the PKF internship. Communication, exposure to the Local professionals and team spirit were the best things about this internship for Wilkins.
 

“I will never forget that memorable day of last summer that PKF organized in Fond-des-Blancs. It was during that time that I made my first attempt to become part of PKF by approaching Mr. Frantz, a member of the PKF team. Even though I was qualified for a scholarship I was not able to join PKF because I was over 16 years old. However, Mr. Frantz promised to work on my behalf and at the end of the year, Mr. Fritz contacted me and informed me that PKF was working on launching a new program to help promising student like me with their postsecondary education called PKF UPP program.” – Wilkins (20), who is very happy to have come across PKF.
