One of four similar community spaces around the world, Haiti Communitere was established immediately following the 2010 earthquake. It serves as a coworking, community-oriented, capacity-building hub in Port-au-Prince.
From Haiti Communitere's mission: "Our grassroots approach involves an active, experienced, on-the-ground presence with a focus on providing the resources, processes and tools required to empower local people and groups to take an active role in the renewal and strengthening of their own communities. In addition, we are committed to bridging the gap between individuals who are willing to help and organizations that can effect change. Central to that commitment is the notion that communication, information, and strategic partnerships are vital for strengthening local communities in their renewal."
