BIAAG Campaign in Jacmel Carnival

promoting girls' right at carnival

Dozens of girls and boys paraded in the very creative national carnival of Jacmel this year with Plan International’s Because I Am A Girl campaign (BIAAG), in the south-east of Haiti, to promote equality for girls and their rights to learn, lead, decide and thrive. They made their voices heard by tens of thousands of festival-goers thanks to a good collaboration between Plan International, the Haitian Institute of Social Welfare, the national for children protection, the Health Department and the Directorate of Civil Protection.

Rain gauges help keep children safe in Haiti

Haiti is one of the most hurricane-prone countries on the planet. The Caribbean country is regularly battered by tropical storms and floods and has also been struck by powerful earthquakes.

Extensive deforestation which began on a large scale in the mid-1980s, has left the country's hillsides exposed and unable to hold water. The ensuing floods destroy crops and livelihoods. In 2008, 70% of Haiti's crops were wiped out during the hurricanes.
