Haiti - Social : Tangible benefits of Social Assistance Program «Ede Pèp»
Wednesday at a press conference at the Primature, Charles Jean Jacques, Minister of Social Affairs and Labour, did not hide his satisfaction before the tangible benefits of social assistance Programme "Ede pèp" of the Administration Martelly-Lamothe and its "fight against hunger" component.

Figures in hands, the Minister explained the mechanisms in place to ensure the sustainability of the program of community restaurant and of Transit center intended for the most disadvantaged sections of the population, indicating [to the intention of the opposition], that these programs were addressed to the Haitian people in general and not only for supporters of the regime stating "The program of implantation of Community restaurants originally targeted the establishment of 90 restaurants. Of 75 identified, 58 are currently operating across the country and provide 29,000 hot meals each day and have created 522 direct jobs."

Charles Jean Jacques announced at the request of the Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, "by October we should move from 90 to 190 community restaurants." Recalling that each restaurant has the capacity to provide 500 hot meals per day, or 45,000 meals for the 90 restaurants planned [95,000 for the 190]. A symbolic contribution of 10 gourdes is claimed to the beneficiary and the program ensures that at least 50% of the dish consists of local products "Needless to say the community restaurants facilitate the development of close relationships with producers," stressed the Minister, who announced that "Communities of Sans-Fil and of Fort-National is preparing to soon welcome their respective community restaurant."

In addition, Minister Jean Jacques has placed particular emphasis on the implementation program of 60 community bakeries in the Project "Chanje metye, chanje lavi" of the Presidency in partnership with the Ministry "This initiative aims to create a new class of entrepreneurs with an extensive program of vocational training for young people from disadvantaged sections of the population. These young people are located and recruited according he map of the National Council on Food Security (CNSA), ovens are manufactured locally and their choice is part of the Government's policy for the protection of the environment."

Still with the aim to promote the family policy, Charles Jean Jacques explained that the Ministry has established the Transit Center in Delmas, which should accommodate in short-term 400 street children. According to the Minister, these young people will be supported in the large cities of the country. They will be educated and the construction site of the new school, which will provide vocational training, will begin very soon. He also announced the renovation of the center of Carrefour, which will see its capacity move from 300 to 900 people.
