On Thursday, the members of the Board of the National Fund for Education (FNE) met around the validation of the budget document of the FNE for the year 2019-2020.

Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, the Minister of National Education who presided over this Council took stock of a set of measures adopted during the school year to reduce the cost of schooling to the benefit. In particular, he referred to the thousands of parents who have already received back-to-school vouchers and support provided to three educational institutions for people with disabilities. The Minister Cadet also recalled that the tuition fees of many students of the fundamental were taken care of this year, whether at the level of national schools, presbyteral, Protestant or communal.

In addition, Joseph Frantz Nicolas, who acted as Executive Secretary of the Council, presented to the members of the Council the FNE's budget forecasts for the 2019-2020 financial year.

13% of these forecasts estimated at more than 2 billion Gourdes will be allocated to operating expenses, given the fact that the FNE is still in the process of operationalization.

76% of the budget will be spent on investments while the remaining 11% will be the emergency fund.

Does this second year of the FNE's existence essentially aim to "lead the institution to the effective launching of its priority projects on the one hand and to finalize its internal structuring on the other hand."

The budget document provides a Summary of Forecast Spending for Operations and Investment for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. The specific objectives of the FNE are distributed as follows:

  • The construction of 21 schools on the national territory (19 projects already approved by the National Commission for Public Procurement);
  • PROSGATE funding for the payment of contract teachers;
  • The subsidy for the new school year 2019-2020;
  • The rehabilitation of dozens of schools on the national territory;
  • The acquisition of furniture and school materials;
  • Accompaniment to the Office of Management of Early Childhood (BUGEP);
  • Support to the National School Canteens Program (PNCS) in the care of the school canteen for the benefit of nearly 10,000 students;
  • The training of more than a thousand teachers;
  • The grant of several thousand low-income parents.

Recall that the FNE, which enjoys financial and administrative autonomy, is under the supervision of the Ministry of National Education and has a legal personality of unlimited duration. Its mission is to participate in the Education for All effort and to manage funding for both State and local government spending on education, including tuition fees for Haitian schoolchildren, projects and studies likely to contribute to the advancement of children's education, and finally the construction or improvement of school infrastructure in the country.
