People in Haiti are being trained to build earthquake-resistant houses following the disaster that hit the country in 2010 leaving over a million homeless.

A joint project by the government and the International Labour Organization (ILO) has set out to rebuild 16 neighborhoods and re-house displaced people living in six camps,

This project in the municipalities of Port-au-Prince, Delmas and Petion-Ville will facilitate the return of more than 5000 displaced households living in tents.

The same approach is now being replicated in the Champs-de-Mars square in the centre of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital.
