This project aims to support the youth of Haiti’s low-income urban areas (called “popular zones”), who are most vulnerable to being both victims of a crime and perpetrators of violence. This project aims to increase security and stability in Haiti by: (1) enhancing the capacity of civil society organizations and the Haitian National Police to manage peace and security challenges; (2) having spaces and activities that bring together youth, the community and the Haitian National Police in an effort to reduce mistrust and violence; and (3) improving local development and income generating activities for vulnerable groups to productively engage them in society and their communities.
