Ayitic is a capacity building project that seeks to expand knowledge and strengthen the skills of information and communication technology experts and professionals in Haiti. By helping strengthen and develop local capacity, Ayitic aims at creating conditions such that the Internet will become an effective instrument for social inclusion and economic development in Haiti.
Ayitic is an initiative of the Internet Address Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean, LACNIC, and its local partners Canado Technique, Ecole Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti (ESIH) and Transversal.Ayitic 2016 video
After the LACNIC Caribbean 4 meeting held in Haiti in 2012, LACNIC identified the need to work on strengthening the technical community's capabilities using formats and proposals specially designed to meet local demands. Ayitic is in line with the Action Plan for National Recovery and Development of Haiti, which highlights the importance of rebuilding the pool of qualified human resources and developing modern, efficient information and communication techniques for public services.
The project seeks to build capacity, expand knowledge networks, and consolidate decision-making spaces geared primarily towards telephony, computer networks (wireless networks, network management), security, and IPv6 deployment.
Working together with teachers, experts and advanced students of Haitian technical institutes and universities, Ayitic's various activities seek to strengthen capacity among experts and professionals responsible for operating and developing telecommunications networks for government agencies, public and private enterprises, and civil society.
Ayitic organizes free training workshops. Two editions of the workshop were already held in 2013 and 2014, both of which were specifically designed for professionals and covered topics such as IPv6 deployment, network security, IP telephony, wireless networks, and network management. In 2016, Ayitic will offer a third edition of the workshop, this time aimed at training trainers.
In order to strengthen the program’s impact and broaden its scope, in August 2016 Ayitic will launch the third edition of its workshop, this time with a new approach: training trainers. The program will work to strengthen knowledge among professionals currently teaching at technical institutes or in key positions within local technology companies, who will be able to transmit this knowledge to other colleagues and professionals. This new approach seeks to achieve a spillover effect, where the instructors trained through Ayitic will replicate their knowledge, thus broadening the program's scope and increasing its impact.

Following the new approach for training trainers, the program seeks to train individuals with the potential to replicate their knowledge within formal and informal education and training environments. The program has been designed with two target groups in mind:
Experts and professionals currently teaching at technical institutes and universities.
Experts and professionals working in ICT companies who have the opportunity to replicate their knowledge within their own working environments.
Companies interested in training their employees must pay a registration fee. The selection process for the first group will be implemented with the help of the institutions themselves. Ayitic will invite local technical institutes to participate in the program. In turn, these institutes will nominate the trainers that would like to receive training. Selected participants and the institutions that nominated them must agree to replicate the materials offered by the program through at least two training initiatives of their own.
Ayitic is funded with the support of the following organizations:
