Pourtant, cette filière historique représente encore pour Haïti un enjeu socio-économique et environnemental majeur.

Haiti’s tumultuous history has resulted in a fragile state and an under-resourced, but perseverant, citizenry. The 2010 earthquake further weakened the country and intensified existing crises; however, it also increased global attention and catalyzed international support. With increased global focus comes renewed potential to rebuild and renew Haitian society. Haitian and international leaders recognize that an excellent educational system is of primary importance to building a vital, just, and free society.
