Lèkol Toupatou in Haitian Kréyol means School Everywhere in English.
The title and the fulfillment of its intentions--to bring Universal Literacy in Languages, Mathematics, and other Subjects to ALL Haitians-- deserve exclamation points. Anyone with a mobile phone can learn. Lèkols Toupatou! Des Ecoles Partout! Schools Everywhere!
Lèkol Toupatou brings 25 Modules of video and audio Lessons for first-year students in Haitian Kréyol, French, English and Spanish. Each Jou/Day/Jour/Dia of Lessons in Writing, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Languages, Dance, ... is about 30 minutes long. 10 Jous/Days of Lessons comprise Module 1. Modules 2 through 10 contain seven Jous each. From thereon, Modules 11 through 25 contain five Jous/Days of further learning, each about 30 minutes in length. The Modules and Lessons follow the Mon Livre Unique textbook, 243 pages created by Madame Marie-Marthe Balin Franck-Paul and colleagues and once distributed to Schools across Haiti.
A "tree-mendous" achievement--Lèkol Toupatou! More than 112 hours
total of video and audio recording! A labor of love for Haitians and the world! Lèkol Toupatou began in December 2019--when "manifestations" were closing Schools in Port-au-Prince and elsewhere in Haiti. It extends into its Launch for every Haitian amid the deprivations and turmoil of November 2022.

Who can we thank for Lèkol Toupatou? Madame Marie-Marthe Balin
Franck Paul and her Team at College Canapé-Vert persevered through
the 34 months since December 2019. They kept going through closures of more Schools due to more "Manifestations." They kept going through "COVID." They kept going in the turmoil that followed assassination of
Haiti's President, Jovenal Moise, in July 2021. Always and with finer qualities of execution and realization they worked toward Madame Franck Paul's lifelong goal--the means and the media for Universal Literacy in Languages, Mathematics, and other Subjects for all Haitians!

Paul with the Prix Rochombe for her 65
years as an educator, November 2019.
A people who can read and write can make their own destiny. Madame Franck-Paul has often said. Sticking Up For Children is honored to serve as one platform for Lèkol Toupatou. Module 1 begins here today with the Premye Jou.
Monday through Saturday of each following week, each Jou will provide
another Half-Hour of empowering Lessons. Within less than one year, if a
student is faithful, the ability to read and write in at least two languages,
Kréyol and French, along with conversational ability in English or Spanish, along with foundations in Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Physiology and Hygiene and Dance and Music, ... will be his or hers.
Haiti began through a Revolution that raised its makers to independence
and dignity. The education that Madame Franck Paul and her Team offer is the pathway to capacities and freedoms much like another Revolution--
a Empowering Framework for Literacy that can carry round the world!
