Four years after the launch of the PSUGO (Programme de Scolarisation Universelle, Gratuite et Obligatoire) the Director-General of National Education in Haiti, Rénold Telfort, has announced that more than 6,8 billion gourdes had been spent on schooling subsidies between 2011 and 2015.

 

These subsidies were paid to non public schools in terms of the schooling subsidy of USD 90 per student.  According to the information given, there are 8,636 private schools which are the beneficiaries of PSUGO.

 

The PSUGO programme reaches out to the most needy children in Haiti and an internal audit process has identified schools which have been receiving double subsidies for any one child from both the PSUGO programme and the Programme d’Éducation pour Tous (EPT.) so that action can be taken against these irregularities. 

 

Capitalising on Innovative Financing for Development (IFD)

The PSUGO Programme is the result of the application of an innovative financing for development mechanism in which the funds for the school subsidies are generated by micro surcharges on international telephone calls. Haiti is one of several developing or emerging countries who are capitalising on innovative financing for development.

 

This approach is the very same as the one used by LSL World Initiative (LSL). Founded in July 2015 by Laurent Lamothe, former Prime Minister of Haiti, LSL is a leading global organisation dedicated to the socio-economic development and empowerment of emerging countries.  As a private company focusing on social and economic impacts and social transformation, LSL works exclusively with governments to provide solutions for them to implement their own funding mechanisms achieve economic self-sufficiency and sustainable development.

 

Reducing debt and reliance on foreign aid

LSL’s innovative financing mechanisms, based on the country’s own resources, empowers their governments to take their own decisions with regard to their developmental goals while reducing debt and reliance on foreign aid.  However, to be successful, the Innovative Financing for Development process must be properly implemented through the following three phases: resource mobilisation, revenue assurance and revenue utilisation.

 

Through LSL’s innovative financing model, the governments are able to gain full control of the data to protect their revenues and monitor the programmes effectively.

 

Creating an environment conducive to investment—the way to go

Laurent Lamothe has said “The only way to combat poverty and inequality is to attract massive investments while creating employment at the same time. The role of government is to mobilise resources and to create conditions conducive to investment.  If this is done, the investors will come.”

 

An Innovative Financing for Development Programme for any country represents a huge opportunity for the government to attract technical partners and other investors while generating significant revenue and investing it in healthcare, education, the fight against poverty, infrastructure or any other national development priority.

Four years after the launch of the PSUGO (Programme de Scolarisation Universelle, Gratuite et Obligatoire) the Director-General of National Education in Haiti, Rénold Telfort, has announced that more than 6,8 billion gourdes had been spent on schooling subsidies between 2011 and 2015.

Four years after the launch of the PSUGO (Programme de Scolarisation Universelle, Gratuite et Obligatoire) the Director-General of National Education in Haiti, Rénold Telfort, has announced that more than 6,8 billion gourdes had been spent on schooling subsidies between 2011 and 2015.

 

These subsidies were paid to non public schools in terms of the schooling subsidy of USD 90 per student.  According to the information given, there are 8,636 private schools which are the beneficiaries of PSUGO.

 

The PSUGO programme reaches out to the most needy children in Haiti and an internal audit process has identified schools which have been receiving double subsidies for any one child from both the PSUGO programme and the Programme d’Éducation pour Tous (EPT.) so that action can be taken against these irregularities. 

 

Capitalising on Innovative Financing for Development (IFD)

The PSUGO Programme is the result of the application of an innovative financing for development mechanism in which the funds for the school subsidies are generated by micro surcharges on international telephone calls. Haiti is one of several developing or emerging countries who are capitalising on innovative financing for development.

 

This approach is the very same as the one used by LSL World Initiative (LSL). Founded in July 2015 by Laurent Lamothe, former Prime Minister of Haiti, LSL is a leading global organisation dedicated to the socio-economic development and empowerment of emerging countries.  As a private company focusing on social and economic impacts and social transformation, LSL works exclusively with governments to provide solutions for them to implement their own funding mechanisms achieve economic self-sufficiency and sustainable development.

 

Reducing debt and reliance on foreign aid

LSL’s innovative financing mechanisms, based on the country’s own resources, empowers their governments to take their own decisions with regard to their developmental goals while reducing debt and reliance on foreign aid.  However, to be successful, the Innovative Financing for Development process must be properly implemented through the following three phases: resource mobilisation, revenue assurance and revenue utilisation.

 

Through LSL’s innovative financing model, the governments are able to gain full control of the data to protect their revenues and monitor the programmes effectively.

 

Creating an environment conducive to investment—the way to go

Laurent Lamothe has said “The only way to combat poverty and inequality is to attract massive investments while creating employment at the same time. The role of government is to mobilise resources and to create conditions conducive to investment.  If this is done, the investors will come.”

 

An Innovative Financing for Development Programme for any country represents a huge opportunity for the government to attract technical partners and other investors while generating significant revenue and investing it in healthcare, education, the fight against poverty, infrastructure or any other national development priority.
