Nedgine Paul Deroly is the co-founder & CEO of Anseye Pou Ayiti (Teach for Haiti), which is working to build a Haitian-led movement of civic leaders to spread educational equity. Haiti faces a range of serious challenges to education and over 80% of the country’s primary schools operate outside the public sector and are run by for-profit organisations, faith-based groups and other NGOs. In this session, Nedgine will discuss the "who" of this year's GESF theme: Who has been included in the necessary work of transforming public education to provide all children with the excellence they deserve? While discussing the approach of the Anseye Pou Ayiti movement in Haiti, Nedgine will highlight the importance of recognizing the "solution bearers" among those who themselves have experienced the education inequity we seek to dismantle. Nedgine has been named among the top global social innovators by Echoing Green, selected for the Forbes Magazine “30 Under 30” Social Entrepreneurs, and is a member of the inaugural cohort of the Obama Foundation Fellowship. Hear Nedgine talk about her life-changing work at Anseye Pou Ayiti and what she thinks can help change education in the country for the better.
