Posted: Updated:

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund says it hopes $1.5 million in grants will help Haiti build its hotel, education and technology sectors.

The nonprofit created by former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush said Tuesday it's given a $264,000 grant to the Oasis Foundation that seeks to train potential hotel workers in hospitality services.

The group also issued a $914,000 grant to Quisqueya University to help build a new center that aims to groom business leaders.

A third grant for more than $285,000 will go to a for-profit enterprise named EducaTech for computer equipment, resources and training.

The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund focuses on creating jobs and was formed in the aftermath of the earthquake that struck the nation two years ago.
