The Nation of Haiti, one of the 3 Host Countries of Project Galileo, regrettably suffers from almost 40% illiteracy – a rare and horrifying statistic among nations in the Western Hemisphere. This represents approximately 4,000,000 persons, for whom even the rudiments of education have not as yet been provided. The Education and Literacy Foundation of Project Galileo will work hand-in-hand with the City of Science Foundation to create special schools and educational programs, throughout the Republic of Haiti, to address this crying need. The Foundation’s work will soon be extended to our other 2 Host Countries, and to other nations, once this Organization has developed a successful track record of reducing or ending illiteracy in Haiti.
