CODE: 23_2018 INTERN HAITI
LOCATION: LES CAYE
CLOSING DATE: 16/07/201
DURATION: 6 MONTHS
Cesvi has been working in Haiti since 2009, implementing its projects in the field of emergency, DRR, children’s rights, food security, livelihoods and watershed management in the South, North and West departments.
Currently the Organization is working in two areas of Haiti: Port-au-Prince (PauP), in the South and Grand Anse.
In PauP Cesvi activities are focused on supporting the House of Smiles, a children and youth recreational center in Wharf Jérémie, in Cité Soleil area. The center offers formal education and recreational activities, psychological counseling to children and adolescents. Thanks to the participation of other institutions and NGOs, the House of Smiles has become a reference for children and families in the community.
In the South and Grand Anse, Cesvi started a multi-donor program to improve life conditions in the area of Les Cayes. The project intends to support vulnerable families seriously affected by the severe drought and hurricanes that hit the island almost every year. Cesvi has been working with households who present a high food insecurity index and a high rate of negative coping strategies.
The goal of the intervention is to link emergency interventions to resilience building, with the ultimate objective of improving food security conditions of vulnerable households affected by drought.
In the most recent emergency due to hurricane Matthew, Cesvi responded in support of the population of the South and Grand Anse with a wide multisector response: food and no-food distribution, shelter, hygiene, livelihood and water. The ongoing actions, linked to the emergency phase, aim at recovering normalcy, and building up resilience mainly with DRR and livelihoods activities.
The collaboration will start in July/August 2018.
