Haiti struggles to educate its youth

Government still struggling to rebuild the education sector since major earthquake struck in 2010.

    The United Nations wants children across the world to be given the opportunity to complete primary schooling by next year.

    It is part of the Millennium Development Goals, agreed by world leaders in 2000.

    But for some children in Haiti, they have not been able to go to school since the devastating earthquake in 2010.

    The government there has been struggling to rebuild the education sector ever since.
