Cité Soleil, a community in Port-au-Prince, is stigmatized by others in Haiti and the rest of the world as an area of extreme violence and competing gangs.

Working towards a livable Haiti

Janvier is a member of Comite Artisanal Haïtien (CAH), an MCC partner that supports artisans by assisting them with promotion and market access. MCC hopes to provide alternatives to uprooting people and separating families by supporting sustainable livelihoods for people in their home countries, so people like Janvier can remain in Haiti and invest in their home communities.
