Centre d'Education Inclusif - CEI

Improving educational systems by connecting communities. CEI brings together multiple community stakeholders to collaboratively co-create Haiti’s first inclusive school, engaging parents, students, educators, administrators, architects, engineers, and government officials on both local and national levels.

Fonctionnement normal


The journey to creating Haiti's first fully inclusive school has been long and challenging at times, but yesterday's celebration of the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities that took place in Les Cayes was a reminder that this journey is well worth it not only for students with disabilities but for all children. Along with Bureau du Secrétaire d'État à l'Intégration des Personnes Handicapées and Raniph - Secretariat National, CEI hosted an event where children danced, sang, and played together in an inclusive setting to celebrate #December3. Here is a small preview into the environment CEI hopes to create where (every) student has the opportunity to flourish.

Thanks for your ongoing support!


Inclusion Matters!
Today, CEI celebrates the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Help us promote awareness and galvanize support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society!

On Cornell Campus? Join us this evening from 6-7pm, 173 Warren Hall, to commemorate the day, discuss inclusion here at Cornell and learn how student groups are supporting the cause.

Disability shouldn't define your life! We need to work together to create more of these success stories.

“After I was born, I was the subject of a 45-minute dissertation at Columbia University. Almost all of my organs were born externally, and had to be sewn into my body. I don’t have a belly button-- only a scar where my feeding tube used to be. My mother even tells me that she wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to stand, eat, or drink. But now I can rollerblade. I can do a handstand on my crutches. I’ve got a core group of friends, a girlfriend, a college degree, and I’m helping to manage a radio station at the age of 23.”


Alexon speaking about the organizational development of CEI over the past year at CGI U 2015, an inspirational conference held by the Clinton Foundation. Thanks to Engaged Learning + Research at Cornell University for your support!

The CEI student team wanted to thank everyone who donated to Alessandro's hike across Patagonia. We ended up surpassing our goal and raised over $5,000 - we're one step closer to building the first inclusive primary school in Haiti!
