EDV are currently working in Port au Prince in Haiti working with local communities to recover and rebuild following the devastating earthquake of January 12th 2010. The EDV programme aims to do more than provide relief – our goal is to empower survivors to direct their own recovery and create stronger, more sustainable communities. That means that we focus on projects addressing problems identified by the community and foster locally led initiatives. By working closely with community members we can affect change that will far outlive our presence in Haiti.
