The World Bank Continues To Subsidize The Education Sector


The working meetings in Washington of the Haitian delegation led by the Minister of National Education, Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, with the World Bank (WB) and the Global Partnership for Education (SME) in order to find funding for the implementation of several educational projects have been fruitful and open up new opportunities for Haiti in the education sector.

According to Minister Cadet, the World Bank has confirmed its support for a donation of 30 million, as it had already done in 2016. These funds will in particular make it possible to maintain and increase the coverage of school canteens for the benefit of children as soon as the next school year scheduled for 4 September.

Other additional funds are planned for Haiti. To this end, the total contribution of the World Bank to Haiti will increase by 140 million, from 120 million to 260 million. Education will be particularly beneficiary to this increase.

Recall that Minister Cadet was accompanied by Norbert Stimphil, Coordinator of the Education For All (EFA) project, Delima Pierre Director General of the National Office for Education Partnership (ONAPE) and of Communication Director of the Ministry, Miloody Vincent.
