Description: 

 

25 houses and two community centers were built for the communities of Gallet and Roche Blanche by America Solidaria and Pastoral Universitaria Haitiana. These two agencies have applied knowledge and practical experience gained in former projects to become more and more effective. Now they operate an improved selection process to identify the families that have more housing needs. Educational activities are implemented to incorporate and involve families in the project development. The housing project is complemented with other initiatives in the areas of health and education. Community centers were used even before the building was completed to gather people around new ideas, generating cohesion and energies to address new housing challenges in a collaborative way.
