OUR WORK IN HAITI

img_5276.jpg

In late 2016, LRCP expanded to work in Haiti working hand-in-hand with the Haitian Ministry of Education (MENFP) and focusing on a three-pronged approach to institutional capacity building: (a) technical assistance in the development of grades 1–4 reading materials in Kreyòl and French, (b) capacity building of teachers, supervisors, and school principals on effective EGL strategies in 150 schools, and (c) research on early grade literacy issues specific to the needs of Haitian schools.

LRCP Haiti implemented its teacher training activities in collaboration with Fondation Haïtienne de L’enseignement Privé (FONHEP) and conducted EGL research with Université Quisqueya (UniQ) in Haiti. They also implemented the very first national reading conference in Haiti in 2019.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, LRCP shifted its focus in Haiti to developing distance learning materials for children to continue their literacy development at home. In April of 2021, the LRCP team delivered Kreyol language at home learning materials to over 150 schools for parents of first and second grade children to pick up. Those materials were delivered by trucks, motorcycles and even horse to ensure we reached the most remote regions.
