Quality Education and Safer Schools in Haiti

Raising the quality of education and constructing safer schools for Haiti's children are at the center of Save the Children's plans for creating lasting change.

The Institut Abellard in Léogâne is a model of innovative construction techniques that make the school structure more hurricane and earthquake-resistant and therefore safer for the children who learn within its walls.  This school is the first of its kind and serves as an example of best practices of design and construction.  The techniques have been studied by both private builders and non-governmental organizations as a prototype for building other schools around the country.

Attached please find Save the Children's most recent report on education and school construction programs in Haiti.
