Foundation Archbishop Dr. Emmanuel St. Louis (FADRESL)-Haiti
Friendly schools for children in difficulty in Haiti
A project undertaken by the Archbishop Dr. Emmanuel ST Louis (FADRESL) Foundation.
Since 2009, the Archbishop Dr. Emmanuel ST Louis Foundation cooperates with LINASPHADESNA the school project for children in need in Haiti “friendly schools for children in difficulties.”
The project objective is to reintegrate street children into the public education system. For these children, access to school will provide a better future.
The majority of the participating children come from dysfunctional and or violent families. Many have been excluded from the educational system because of absenteeism or because of low income families.
These children are often victims of exploitation and child labour.
They are sometimes victims of trafficking and very often experience
Other forms of discrimination or ill-treatment. Many are forced to live on the streets.
Since the month of January 2009, 60 of “The Haiti children friendly schools” have been established across Haiti, 20 of which are funded by the Foundation Archbishop Dr. Emmanuel ST Louis (FADRESL).
This project gives to the street children the opportunity of better future. Similar activities are now planned in several departments of the Republic of Haiti even at the border.
Students enrolled in the “friendly schools for children in difficulty in Haiti” multi levels and innovative follow a specially developed curriculum and also receive learning methods adapted to their needs. This project comes in addition to the action of the Haitian Government seeking to encourage these children to re-enter the school system. In addition, free LINASPHADESNA meals and the distribution of clean clothes promote attendance.
• Each class is equipped, with the presence of a teacher and a sociologist,
and follows a curriculum tailored to the children of the streets.
• All teachers involved in the project are paid by the Ministry of Education and trained by the complex of FADRESL vocational training Centre.
• The project “Friendly schools for children in difficulty in Haiti” has been integrated in the Haitian official education system. Thus, all children enrolled in school have access to public reviews and official diplomas.
