Haiti - Education : Inauguration of Centre Unifé of Mersan
This week, the Digicel Foundation, in partnership with the National Special Olympics, inaugurated Centre Unifé de Mersan, a charity which works for the integration and development of children and adults with physical and mental handicaps.

This school built in the town of Les Cayes, precisely in the community of Mersan includes two sections, one for children to physical and mental disabilities, the other for children not suffering from disabilities. The Centre Unifé de Mersan includes five classrooms, a infirmary, kitchen, and a direction that will be tasked to manage, supervise and ensure the quality of education offered. All of this center has a capacity of between 120 and 150 students.

The National Director of Special Olympics Haiti, Jean Chevalier Sanon comments on this project : "Now more than ever, Haiti needs a new approach, a new direction, a new vision of society, of citizens more responsible where education remains the best instrument to guarantee the permanence of such an approach.

With the support of the Digicel Foundation 'Centre Unifie de Mersan' (classical training and professional institution) materializes the ideological cohesion and practice between institutions: Digicel Foundation, Special Olympics Haiti, Haiti and the YMCA-centre d'Éducation Spécialisée (CES) give back education its acclaim in promoting an inclusive society."

For its part, Elizabeth Headon, Executive Director of the Digicel Foundation reveals "The Digicel Foundation is here to help Haitian communities and it is always with great pleasure that we bring our reinforcement to those who have given themselves the task of improving those living in precarious conditions."
