Brazil has donated $400,000 to finance one of the three UNESCO projects to rebuild Haiti’s devastated education system.

The donation will finance training for teachers in psycho-social support and disaster awareness for students traumatized by the earthquake of 12 January.

The donation was announced by Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim, following a meeting with UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova at the Organization’s Headquarters on 1 February.

The project will benefit 110,000 secondary and higher education students.
