Wednesday, December 11, Joseph Frantz Nicolas Director General of the National Fund of Education (FNE), went to the Secretariat of State for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities (SEIPH) where he proceeded to the delivery of a envelope of more than 2 million Gourdes for the benefit of 9 institutions and organizations working to integrate people with special needs.

This grant from the FNE is intended to support the training of 259 pupils and students with special educational needs, through 5 organizations. Part of the grant will also be used in the institutional strengthening of 4 Special Education Centers said Joseph Frantz Nicolas

List of beneficiary institutions and organizations :

7. Association des Handicapés de Carrefour (ASHCA)
8. Association Arche-Haïti
9. Association des Œuvres Chrétiennes aux Opprimés de Bas Plateau Central (ASCHOP)

Joseph Frantz Nicolas, speaking to the media, said the aid was part of the government's desire to reduce the cost of education for low-income Haitian households during the 2019-2020 school year, emphasizing that he had responded quickly to the request of Secretary of State Oriol, recalling that "all young Haitians, living with a disability or not, have the same rights."

Note that this is the first group of recipients to receive checks as part of this collaboration between the Office of the Secretary of State for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities and the FNE.

Finally, let us recall that the National Fund of Education according to article 27 concerning its creation, its organization and its operation, has the obligations among others, to ensure the construction and the equipment of adapted establishments and the taking into charges tuition fees for students with special educational needs, such as children and young people with disabilities.
