In the middle of Port au Prince, nestled between the UN, the airport, and Cite Soleil–Haiti’s largest slum–groups of international development workers, volunteers, and Haitian community leaders are working on improving life in Haiti through the maker ethic.
Founded immediately after the 2010 earthquake, Haiti Communitere has been on the ground for the past three years, serving as a community, networking and shared-overhead space for both international NGOs and Haitian groups. Their current focus is on developing their Resource Center, a community workshop, computer lab, and conference space that also serves as Haiti’s only makerspace.
