Haiti - Social : Campaign on sexual education violence and early marriage
As part of the International Day of the Girl, Plan International Haiti launched a new campaign on education, early pregnancy, sexual violence and early marriage.

Imose Jean Gédéon, the Head of the Women's Rights Department at the Ministry of Women's Affairs, announced the upcoming launch of a new awareness-raising campaign aimed at girls linked to gender-based violence, resulting in early pregnancy. and loss of school.

For Mrs Gédéon, it is important to insist on equality between boys and girls in education and against early pregnancy.

Recalling that, during the 2017-2018 biennium, the State, through the Ministry of Women's Affairs and Women's Rights, has launched two support projects for women and girls in situation of vulnerability in two departments, Grand-Anse and the South-East, in several communes among others: La Vallée, Jacmel, Beaumont, Dame-Marie and Pestel.

For his part Allasan Drabo, Director of Plan International Haiti, calls for the consultation of all sectors to tackle the problem in the family, at school, in places of worship and workspace while deploring that women and girls must fight against sexist stereotypes.

William Thelusmond, the coordinator general of the organization Regroupement Education Pour Tous (REPT), says that the right of girls is flouted, citing as an example that "out of 175,000 girls who enter to the first year fundamental, there remain only 18,000 in 9th fundamental year" urging the Haitian Government to guarantee the right of girls through legislation, as well as in the money it has in the budget for their cause.
