Overview

RAVAGEP Sam.jpg

RAVAGEP is a Haitian grass roots organization located in Cité Soleil, Port-au-Prince. RAVAGEP was founded by Samuel (shown in the image to the right) to promote community growth and education. Some of the programs RAVAGEP has facilitated include environmental seminars, HIV/AIDS education seminars, sports programs, a work party to construct a community toilet, and the upkeep of a community garden. The garden is a valuable resource for the community, but the water that runs into it is heavily polluted. Cité Soleil is the last stop for a river that flows through and is used by many other communities in Port-au-Prince. At the garden the river is unsanitary and dangerously polluted. RAVAGEP has conducted and is undergoing various permaculture experiments in the garden to improve production methods.
