Landmark MIT-Haiti Initiative Will Transform Education In Haiti – kcentv.com

“An important priority of our government is to improve educational quality and access,” said Lamothe. “The MIT-Haiti Initiative is demonstrating this by coupling, for the very first time, state-of-the art educational technology and open online resources with Haiti’s national language of Kreyol.”

The MIT-Haiti Initiative consists of a total of $1,310,811, including $1 million from the U.S. National Science Foundation and donations from the faculty and staff at MIT and Haiti. It exemplifies the new investment-driven approach to nation-building embraced by the Martelly-Lamothe administration. “Investments such as this, leveraging new digital technologies for capacity building and sustainable socio-economic development, prepare Haitians to stand on their own,” said Lamothe. via – kcentv.com
