Former Prime Minister Garry Conille on mission in Haiti

Freshly appointed head of the Latin America and Caribbean department of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), former Haitian Prime Minister Garry Conille carried out his first international mission to Haiti on Tuesday, January 24, 2024. He took the opportunity to visit educational facilities built in the South Department.

Les Cayes, January 28, 2023.- Accompanied by the Minister of National Education and Vocational Training, Professor Nesmy Manigat, the senior United Nations official, toured the south of the country, precisely in the city of Cayes.

He intended to inquire about the progress of the reconstruction works of the schools destroyed by the earthquake of August 14, 2021 and carried out with the support of UNICEF.

He took the opportunity to visit the national school of the locality of Miserne, recently rebuilt and which welcomes 480 pupils from preschool to the ninth fundamental year.

Doctor Conille encouraged all national and international actors to prioritize education and schools which must be “a haven of peace” to better protect children, he underlined.

For his part, Minister Manigat recalled the importance of the transformation projects of the education system as well as the need to respect the revised school calendar, because, he recalls, the children have already lost too many school days.

The ceremony ended with a distribution of the unique school book in Haitian Creole.

In addition to Doctor Conille and Minister Manigat, the representative of UNICEF in Haiti, Bruno Maes; the country director of the World Food Program (WFP); Jean Martin Bauer and Deputy Head of Mission at the Mexican Embassy in Haiti Andrés Dario Medellín took part.
