European Union grants 18 million to Haiti’s education sector

Port-au-Prince, Jun 9 (Prensa Latina) The European Union granted the Government of Haiti 18 million dollars for the education sector, the head of the Ministry of Education, Nesmy Manigat, confirmed today.

Manigat assured he explored with Felice Zaccheo, head of Unit for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean of the European Commission’s Directorate General for International Partnerships, the challenges of adapting technical and professional training to the economy and building schools more resistant to disasters.

Since 1994, the European Union has allocated 451 million euros in humanitarian aid to Haiti, a Caribbean country ravaged by disasters and a persistent political and security crisis.

So far this year more than 1,600 people have been killed, kidnapped or injured as a result of gang actions, 30 percent more than in the previous quarter, in addition to the vigilante groups responsible for hundreds of lynchings, according to a report by the International Office for Migration.

Armed gangs have gained strength in Haiti in recent years, and according to United Nations reports currently control more than 80 percent of Port-au-Prince with an increase in kidnappings and murders in and around the capital.

The recent operation Bwa Kale, initiated by residents to curb the advance of gangs, led to a reduction in cases of kidnappings and homicides, however, insecurity is one of the main challenges of the current government.
