Haiti is currently in a time of challenge and crisis. The country has faced deepening instability since the assassination of its president in July 2021. As the country works toward stability, it is of the utmost importance that education in Haiti continues to develop and support the country’s next generation of leaders. In Haiti’s rural and rugged Central Plateau, where the implementing partner, Summits Education, operates a network of 40 primary schools, getting students into formal education from an early age is a challenge. Across Haiti, only 22% of students receive formal preschool or kindergarten level education before starting primary school.
Library & Resource Center for Teacher’s Training Center
GRANT AMOUNT REQUEST
This project aims to equip the library and resource center of the staff campus in Mirebalais. This includes the provision of resources such as books and research materials. Summit’s teachers and administrative staff regularly visit this campus/training center in Mirebalais to obtain capacity building through teacher professional development and training programs. The materials in the library and resource center will be available for teachers and staff to use on site and to bring back to their schools.
The beneficiaries of the library and resource center at Mirebalais are twofold. First, Summits’ 350 teachers and school administration staff will be able to access and utilize the materials in the library. These teachers and staff provide education to over 10,000 students across the 40 schools in Summits’ network. Second, Summits’ 10,000 students will benefit from increased teacher and administrator knowledge as well as gaining access to grade-level books in Kreyol, French, and English.
