U-Reporters joined recovery actions and supported children in schools in southern Haiti

In over three months, from November 2021 to January 2022, U-Reporters showed that youth can be key allies to support recovery actions. By joining UNICEF emergency response, young people contributed to distributing school kits in three regions in southern Haiti: Grand’Anse, Sud, and Nippes, which were seriously devastated by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in 2021. 

  

By participating voluntarily, 30 U-Reporters collaborated with UNICEF Haiti staff and reached 270 schools where they distributed 70,000 kits to school children and 1,600 kits to teachers.
