Haiti Progress, May 2012: Growth and transition

May 2012. As the conversations on the ground shift from "disaster relief" to "long-term recovery," we take a look at how our operations fit into the scheme. See the update below featuring our Program Coordinator for how the rest of 2012 and beyond will shape up for the Rebuilding Center. For Port-au-Prince residents, don't miss Leslie Voltaire's presentation at tonight's Meet n Greet (details below).

Haiti Meet n Greet - Friday, May 25, 5:30 - 7:30
One Third of Haiti lives in the urban sector of Haiti's Western Department (Ouest). A combination of exploding population and negative economic growth has led to urban migration, misuse of habitable spaces and the threat of hasty design responses. M Leslie VOLTAIRE, architect and urbanist, will present "Land Use and Community Planning."
