The construction and the monitoring of educational policies must take into account the opinions of those who are entitled to the right to education. In this blog, CLADE invites people who did not have a chance to study or to finish their studies until adult age to tell their stories and leave recommendations to States. Besides increasing perspectives, the recommendations in the web page will serve as an input for a document of proposals that will be used by the Campaign in their advocacy actions.

Accede a:
This is the website of “Haiti is all of us” campaign. This initiative is aimed at increasing visibility of issues that affect Haitians in their everyday life, especially focusing on advocacy strategies for free, public, quality education for all, with no discrimination. We understand that Haiti problems matter to everyone. In that sense, it is urgent to foster international solidarity actions focused on human rights, respecting Haitian people’s autonomy. This is the moment to take a new look at the education system reconstruction plans and, mostly, to fight to reverse tendencies toward privatisation of education in that country.
