Ms. Marie George François, explained the objectives pursued within the framework of the implementation of this program "The whole team is mobilizing to have a successful year. During the month of August 2012, the administration of Haiti Vision has organized of programs of academic and professional training for teachers and directors of schools beneficiaries of school feeding project to demonstrate its willingness to ensure that students not only receive food aid, but also a quality education.

Last year was a success. Directors of schools have expressed their satisfaction about the conduct of the program. They benefited from an increase in student enrollment thanks to the food aid program.
