Haiti: LAMIKA Program
The Lavi Nan Miyò Katye Pam (LAMIKA) program is an urban integrated neighborhood reconstruction and recovery program being implemented in Carrefour-Feuilles, a poor residential neighborhood in Port-au-Prince. The area sustained extensive damage from the earthquake and is characterized by extreme poverty, dense housing and limited access to safe infrastructure and services.
Meaning “a better life in my neighborhood” LAMIKA’s objective is to enhance community and household resiliency through a sustainable and integrated approach that provides healthy, habitable, and secure living conditions. There are three components: social empowerment, economic strengthening and physical renewal.
