Program Status Update

"Offering books should be seen as a public and social service, just as education. Similarly, seeing and running schools without a minimum amount of books, regardless of pretext, represents a considerable injustice to students. As Alvaro Garzón we say: “To educate and / or instruct without offering texts to read is as cruel as arousing thirst and then refusing a glass of water."

Problem

Young people represent the future, what they do today will inevitably lead to what they have done tomorrow. The Haitian school population, between the ages of 12 and 24 in general, is very exposed and deprived of an educational and cultural environment that shapes their behavior, their way of thinking, feeling and acting briefly. This emptiness only alarms the plight of young schoolchildren heading down to alcoholism, delinquency, violence, attrition, abandonment, repetition of schooling and the like.

No one needs to be a great observer to see what is happening in Haitian society, specifically, in today's schools; the systematic depravity of the symbolic status of pupils in schools, in vans, in the street, in bars, in public squares, at home; the disappointing results of chronic failures of a category of this youth, all this challenges us and we, as a citizen. What to do?

What can be done to acclimatize this segment of the Haitian population (schoolboy / schoolgirl) to other practices in an educational and cultural environment capable of promoting a taste for study and acquisition of new knowledge in order to face the challenges ahead. For a well-educated, well-trained young man is a wise and committed citizen for a better tomorrow. Is this not one of the roles of reading and books if we rely on the fact that "books are an essential instrument for acquiring all the skills necessary for society, they are of an intellectual or technical nature ".

"Offering books should be seen as a public and social service, just like education, of which it is a part. Similarly, seeing and running schools without a minimum amount of books, regardless of pretext, represents a considerable injustice to students. Also, like Alvaro Garzón, we say: "To educate and / or instruct without offering texts to read is as cruel as arousing thirst and then refusing a glass of water."

As part of this project, we will devote ourselves to doubling up by placing boxes-to-books (250,000 books) in 500 schools in the community of Delmas-Tabarre, followed by fun activities around the book and reading so that book and reading is not the privilege of a small number.

Objectives

Contribute to academic achievement and development of Essential Skills among students in the Delmas-Tabarre community through books and reading.
