Haiti students are being sent overseas to learn skills which will boost their tourism economy.
More than 20 students, who have withstood Haiti’s post-earthquake conditions, have been chosen by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Education Foundation (CHTAEF) to be educated abroad.
The Haiti project has been run outside the normal scope of the CHTAEF - which offers funding and placements for 50 Caribbean candidates to study every year- and has gained funding from the Clinton foundation for training rooms.
The hotel school in Port au Prince was destroyed and the students were left without a school, home and sanitation.
After the earthquake many students offered their services free to the hotels that remained even though the majority were living in tents.

Recently, roomsXML has launched its new version of API, which brings significant upgrades to its already reliable API. By upgrading the API, clients now have the ability to search for multiple hotels of their choice in a single request. This allows them complete freedom to only search for hotels they wish to sell.
