'School Everywhere!' progresses through steady efforts by the team of teachers, students, and Principal Marie-Marthe Balin Franck Paul at College Canapé-Vert. They've more than doubled the number of Lessons recorded for their 'School Everywhere!' project. Now they've completed 15 of the 25 Modules in Madame Franck Paul's
textbook for first-year students in Haiti. Their audio and video delivers Lessons in French, Haitian Kreyol, English
and Spanish. When they're done they'll have built a work
for mobile devices hat can enable Universal Literacy in Haiti and elsewhere. As Madame Franck Paul says: "You must be able to read and write to have power for yourself and in this world."
The team works six or more days a week.
Such progress means that by the end of November 2020, less than one year since the project began and despite Schools being closed in Port-au-Prince due to protests and then COVID-19, the intention of the Team--providing means for universal literacy in Haiti and elsewhere, as said-- will be fulfilled.
