Conor Bohan

Transforming the university system in Haiti

Meet Conor Bohan, founder of HELP (Haitian Education & Leadership Program), Ashoka Fellow elected in Haiti in 2014, and part of the cohort of the SDC-Hystra program to support social entrepreneurship in Latin America. 

Conor seeks to transform the university education system in conflict, polarized societies that suffer from major brain drain through a holistic model that provides disadvantaged young people with a safe, inclusive space and opportunities to develop and practice their leadership potential so that they take ownership and responsibility for building a more just and prosperous society. His model is founded on three pillars: access to a high quality university education, a safe space for young students to develop as change leaders, and opportunities to generate positive change during and after they graduate.
