The Katye ("neighborhood" in Creole) program is helping rebuild the earthquake-devastated community of Ravine Pintade in downtown Port-au-Prince. Funded by USAID/OFDA, the Katye program is a comprehensive, multi-faceted initiative that includes demolition of destroyed buildings, rubble removal, shelter and infrastructure construction and water and sanitation facilities. Katye involves the community members in participatory planning and decision-making on which needs should be addressed. The goal of the program is to create a safer, healthier and more livable community for those affected by the 2010 earthquake.
