Haiti - Education : More than 200,000 books for school libraries and UPRs
This week, Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, the Minister of National Education, launched the operation called "Book for all", an operation intended to strengthen documentary funds or to constitute library embryos in high schools.

During this operation, 208,000 books (composed of scientific books, school and academic textbooks and reading by Haitian and foreign authors) will be distributed in the 230 high schools f the Republic and the 10 Universities in Regions (UPR) in support to improve the quality of education, stressed the Minister Cadet who indicated that this operation was entrusted to the National Office of the Partnership in Education (ONAPE) which mobilized a large part of its staff for the success of this important activity.

The first department already affected concerns the West and its 45 high schools that have already been supplied. The operation will continue through the ten school departments of the country, said the Minister. Each school will receive a batch of 500 books for 452 different titles.

Pierre Delima, the Director General of ONAPE, said that, in addition to the provision of books for high schools, ONAPE will also provide support for the training of librarians and the setting up of a system for monitoring and maintenance of library space.

Next week, a team from ONAPE and the Ministry will travel to the South and the Great North to supply high schools and set up these libraries.

It should be noted that all these books come from two warehouses of the Ministry of Education, where these new books slept, some for some years already...
