In Gonaive, the primary school Louis Braille has nine teachers and 426 students, including these girls and boys. The school goes from preschool to sixth grade and has been receiving grants since 2007 under the World Bank Education for All program. This allows needy students to attend school. School fees range from $250 to $300 per year depending on the grade level.
Haiti received a US$24 million grant from the Global Partnership in June that the government and the World Bank as implementing agency just signed.
The grant will allow more than 200,000 children to get tuition waivers and school meals for the next two years.
