Haiti - France : 13 tons of High-Tech Equipment for education
Thursday, on board Dumont d'Urville of the Armed Forces of the Antilles, the Ambassador of France accredited to Haiti, Didier Le Bret has proceeded, during a ceremony, to the delivery of 13 tons of pedagogical equipment to the Minister of Education and vocational Training, Reginald Paul.

The Ambassador of France explained that this donation of France consisted in 13 tons [57 pallets] of teaching equipment completely modern, "it is among others: 200 modules (computers, video projectors, surge protector, chargers, etc...) digital touch screens that allow to teach both in a conventional manner and at distance... 180 interactive whiteboards worth around 2.500 euros each [...] it's all the high-tech adapted to teaching but also some books for schools of medicine and possibly some faculties of the country [...] it is with great pleasure that we hand all this material to the Minister of Education that will decide the optimal allocation according to your priorities and your education policy... [...] This loading is exclusively educational nature cargo, why ? Because there is a moment, where it is necessary to move on, and that the expressed needs today are more in this sector [...] so modestly, France responded to a request of High-Tech instruments and many books."

The Minister of Education said he was moved by the magnitude of this gift "[...] I am very moved because I was not expecting such a great gift. Mr. Ambassador I ask you to convey to the French all the thanks of the President of the Republic and the Haitian government for this great gesture. I think that the use of these digital and technological materials will create an extremely important development in terms of quality [...] for some time, the Ministry began important reflections on the improvement of the quality of education that we e provide to our children in different schools [...] it is not only to send our children to school, but we must provide an education of quality which may in future contribute to the development of this country and I believe, that those tools, can be used doubly to the training of teachers and even to the initial training through the network of 37 EFACAPs (School of Fundamental Application Teaching Support Centre) that we ave across the country. These EFACAPs are for us a place of continuous training for the teachers. Through these Centres, we will work on the implementation of this equipment in order to not only allow teachers to develop their own teaching materials but also to help them to interact with teachers from other countries [...] we give a guarantee to the French and to the Haitian state, that these equipments will be used wisely, efficiently for the recovery of the Haitian education system..."
