From January 14 to 16, 2019, the Global Partnership for Education convened members of the Ministry of National Education (MENFP) of Haiti and other technical and financial partners, namely the European Union, UNICEF, UNESCO and the World Bank to a technical workshop in Washington DC.

The activity was part of the finalization of the 10-year Education and Training Plan and is an essential step in the partnership between GPE and Haiti, which could lead to new funding of $16.5 million to support educational projects in the country, and a consensus on the possible adjustments for the finalization of the final strategic plan.

Many aspects of the new funding were discussed, including the GPE quality assurance process, funding model, comments and feedback on the strategic plan, and the development of a road map on the next steps in the GPE-MENFP cooperation among others.
