Education in Haiti

Monday 13 May 2013

In Haiti, 85 percent of schools are privately run due to the limited national education system. Many private schools operate on a shoestring budget and are challenged to meet monthly expenses. The centerpiece of our work is the Quality Education Initiative at 224 schools. We are creating safe learning environments, training teachers, mobilizing communities to support children’s education and building local, regional and national capacity to improve the quality of basis education.

Save the Children has been working intensely in the Education matter in Haiti. Two examples of the work done in this field are the “Reading is the Future” program and the “Creole and French literacy” program.
