Project to support the education and training of children in emergency, prevention and first aid measures in public schools in Haiti

Phase I


The Project in Brief

This project is very important for us as it marks the beginning of a humanitarian adventure for C.P.S.O.T.A. Being a non-profit organization it is clear that our goals differ from the usual business model. What we want most of all through this project is to The famous old adage "When a man (sic) to hunger, it is better to teach him to sin than to give him a fish". So we want to train enough people in prevention so that in turn they can train as many young people in school as possible to acquire the knowledge to get out of emergency situations and save other lives. We are therefore very excited and proud to undertake this ambitious adventure and hope that you will make the journey with us! In short this represents:

  • Investment of more than $ 4,000,000.00 CAD
  • First phase over 30 months
  • 26,000 public school students
  • First aid
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Cardiac Defibrillator (AED)
  • Identification of hazardous materials
  • Fire prevention
  • Action in the event of a disaster
  • Training blocks by departments


  • Haiti is one of the countries with the highest natural disaster index in the world. From 2004 to 2012, the country has nearly 500,000 deaths, most of which could have been avoided if there were people who could quickly intervene and respond appropriately in the event of a disaster.
  • At a conference on the subject, engineer Claude Prépetit explained that the population continues to be vulnerable. However, he remains confident that the formation of the population in the face of the multi-hazard is the only way to prevent a next catastrophe from causing as much damage in the country.
  • Training in this respect is the objective set by the Canadian Peace and Security Officer Training Association (C.P.S.O.T.A) in private schools with 88% of children and public schools (12%). • The need for training, in other words, the determining factors; The feasibility (the necessary resources) and the description of it are presented in the following lines
