LOS ANGELES, California – Green Globe Certification supports the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Education Foundation-Haiti Fund (CHTAEF-Haiti Fund) and recently donated US$2,000 to purchase 5 netbooks with MS software for surviving Haiti hotel school students who lost their institution as a result of the devastating earthquake of January 12 in 2010.

The Haitian government identified tourism as a priority axis for sustainable long-term development, and Haitian Hoteliers reached out to CHTAEF for assistance in growing the surviving students, tourism, and hotel workers skills and knowledge. CHTAEF-Haiti Project is a resource for the development of young Haitians wishing to join hospitality facilities in Port au Prince and environs when they re-open.

“The students have worked hard to this point and achieved enormous professional success,” said Louise John, Trustee and Project Lead with CHTAEF-Haiti, “These young people are shining examples of modern hospitality to their fellow Haitians. Our dreams for their future can only be realized with donations, and we are very grateful for Green Globe Certifications’ generous contribution. Eighteen of our students have been offered places at the Antigua & Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute, The Barbados Community College, and the St. Martin University to study for their Associate Degrees in Hospitality Management, Culinary Arts or Food, and Beverage Management.”

Green Globe Certification’s CEO, Guido Bauer, commented, “The Caribbean is one of our strongest performing areas worldwide in regards to sustainability, and I am more than happy to assist with the needs in that area.”


The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Education Foundation (CHTAEF) was established in 1987 as an independent non-profit organization offering tax-exempt status for donations. The charity offers scholarships and special assistance for the education of Caribbean tourism industry personnel and students pursuing tourism and hospitality careers. As part of its mission, the Education Foundation provides people throughout the Caribbean region with an awareness of the varied career opportunities in the industry, as well as technical and professional developments. The CHTA Education Foundation volunteer trustees administer one of the largest scholarship programs available in the Caribbean Hospitality & Tourism Industry. Funds and grants are generated from corporate sponsorships, benefit auctions and special events.


The CHTAEF Education Foundation – Haiti Project has been on the ground in Port au Prince since 2010 and delivered intensive English and Hospitality Skills Training to the surviving hotel school students. After 2 years of intense work, the Project graduated 23 students in late December 2011 and has seen them facilitate training and info-sharing to the new intake of Hotel School students, who began in March 2012. The Haitian Ministry of Tourism and Private Hospitality Sector have guaranteed junior management positions to returned degree students in the capital and in the regions.
