For the first time, a symposium on the education of the deaf children in Haiti was held.
It has been organized by several organizations—the Office of Gérald Oriol Jr., Secretary of State for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities (BSEIPH), the Christian Blind Mission (CBM), the Ministry of National Education, the conveners of the project “Strengthening the Legal Framework for People with Disabilities in Haiti”, and the Organization of American States (OAS)—at the Royal Oasis Hotel.
It ‘aimed to bring the issue of education of deaf children in Haiti in the forefront, share experiences and information related to the issue, and seek solutions to meet this challenge’.
“The fundamental objective is to establish a school for all, without exclusion, enabling all children of Haiti to have the same opportunities and access to the most levels high levels of Haitian society through knowledge.” ~ Nesmy Manigat
