The section Community Violence Reduction (RVC) of the Minustah launched this month in Cap-Haitien, two vocational training projects, for total of USD$400,000 for 220 young people from difficult neighborhoods of the municipalities of North and Northeast.

A society with young people trained is a society full of hope and without violence," said Carl Henry Boucher, Northern Departmental Director of the National Police of Haiti (PNH)

For his part, Emilio Castaneda, the Head of Regional Office of the Minustah, said that the Minisutah arranges for its various interventions are job creators.

It considers the mastery of agricultural techniques "necessary to the advancement of the country," noting that "if we had committed such actions earlier, we would not be there today to wait for everything we consume come from the outside."
