Investing in Cap-Haïtien’s educational future: The digital literacy project at the Institution Père Médaille
23 January 2024
More than half of the Haitian population is under the age of 25, and these young people are the hope of a better future for the country. However, they face multiple obstacles to accessing education and employment, particularly young women.
According to the World Bank, girls and young women have made progress in education, but up to 43% in urban areas are neither participating in post-secondary education or training, or on the job market.
The Roncalli Foundation is honoured to have supported this vital project, which is having a direct impact on 610 students and, indirectly, 3,500 people by strengthening access to computer education in the region and improving post-secondary outcomes for young women. We firmly believe that investment in education creates lasting opportunities, and this project embodies our commitment to a brighter educational future for girls in Cap-Haïtien.
