Viva Rio Haiti launches a new project: Martissant without violence

Viva Rio Haiti launched this August 2018 a new community violence reduction project called “Martissan san vyolans” (Martissant without violence). Martissant is a densely populated area of Port-au-Prince that has seen a surge in armed violence during the last years. This new 10-month project is financed by the United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH) and will be implemented in close partnership with the Haitian National Police (HNP).

It aims to engage community members in decision-making on security and peacebuilding and promote income generation and reintegration of at-risk youth and community members through sustainable community projects in the Grand Ravine, Ti-Bois, and Village de Dieu neighborhoods.
