This support focuses on promoting gender equality, education and social skills as well as preventing domestic violence. Youth centres provide children with meaningful afternoon activities, which in turn allows the Salvation Army to create better prospects for young people in the areas of education and leisure, as well as protecting them from falling into crime.

Insufficient access to school education remains a key obstacle to Haiti’s social and economic development. The state is not yet able to provide an appropriate education for its population.

The Salvation Army is supporting Haiti on the path towards securing a school education for all its citizens. It runs 48 schools for more than 10,000 children in rural and very poor areas of Haiti. The Salvation Army Switzerland uses donations to finance 22 of these schools, which are attended by more than 5,000 children. The high quality of teaching at the schools makes an important contribution to educating the Haitian population.
